First look at proposed Duke Street bowling alley

Here’s a first look a what a new nine-lane bowling alley in Liverpool city centre could look like if plans are given the green light.

Your Move revealed yesterday that D2 Investment Ltd wants to redevelop a car park on Duke Street into a new facility featuring ten-pin bowling and a bar and restaurant.

The CGI image has been supplied by the Liverpool-based architectural practice working on the leisure scheme, Snook Architects.

Plans submitted to Liverpool City Council for a change of use of the Duke Street site from car park to bowling alley also include pool tables, table tennis, shuffleboard and a karaoke room.

If approved, the bowling alley would become the first to open in Liverpool city centre and the second in the city in total alongside Hollywood Bowl at Liverpool Shopping Park.

On the subject of city centre bowling alleys, Carl Rice from Jungle Rumble in Liverpool ONE told Your Move in 2017 that anyone opening a full-scale bowling alley in town “would make millions”.

He added: “A wacky twist on bowling would go down well, but even if Hollywood Bowl was to move its alley from Edge Lane to the city centre they would turn over millions each year.”
