Liverpool city centre bowling alley ‘on track’ after licence decision

The opening of a new bowling alley in Liverpool is “on track” following the settlement of a licensing issue.

PINS on Duke Street will feature a street food inspired menu, private ‘VIP’ bowling, shuffleboard and “interactive experiences around every corner”.

The ’boutique bowling alley’ already had a licence to open until 12am, however an extension to the closing time has now been granted, subject to a number of conditions.

Daniel Gillbanks, director at developer D2, which is behind the project, told YM Liverpool that the decision of Liverpool City Council’s licensing and gambling sub-committee yesterday (20 September) was a “great result”.

D2 secured planning approval for the venue in February and revealed in April that it was planning to launch in late 2018.

The building at 45-61 Duke Street, last used as an indoor car park, is being fully refurbished to include the 16,000 sq ft attraction, designed by Snook Architects, with access via both Wolstenholme Square and Duke Street.

It’s expected the development will create 45 new jobs.
