4 years ago
Opening in late November, PINS is a brand new city centre venue based around having fun, real fun, proper serious fun.
A hub of bowling, classic table games and live entertainment, all built around a first-class hospitality experience, PINS takes socialising back to the good old days, when a night out wasn’t just a few drinks at the bar, but a real event.
They’re about people connecting with each other authentically and engaging through experience. PINS is bringing Liverpool’s up-and-coming Duke Street a fun and immersive playground.

Daniel Gillbanks and David Scowcroft, the minds behind your new favourite downtown destination, have impressively renovated a multi-storey car park into a dynamic adventureland, giving a firm nod to the 1960s and paying homage to the golden era of bowling. They’re celebrating a time when bowlers reigned supreme, when they were celebrated like movie stars and the bowling ball stood as a marker of polished excellence.
With 12 custom-built, full-sized bowling lanes split across two floors, both complete with waiter service for food and drink, this dynamic new addition to Liverpool’s city centre is taking the game to the next level. But the fun doesn’t stop there. They’ve got American pool, shuffleboard, beer pong, ping pong and karaoke to keep you entertained all night, every night! And with a host of phenomenal live acts planned for the venue, from DJ sets to band performances, there’ll never be a dull moment under their roof.
If all that isn’t enough, they’ve teamed up with two of the city’s finest independent eateries, Bacaro and Rocket & Ruby, who’ll be running the kitchen in collaboration with one another. Jonathan Poole and Paddy Smith, the gents behind Red and Blue Restaurants, have been hard at work in the test kitchen perfecting their menus and producing the best bowling alley bites. Believe us, you haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen their first-rate fayre!
