A brand new interactive bowling alley and arcade has opened in the Printworks

This looks mint.




There’s a brand new one-stop-shop for all your entertainment needs now open in the Printworks.

Tenpin is taking over the Hard Rock Casino unit in the Printworks and will span over two floors. Guests can expect new interactive bowling lanes that even have high-speed infrared cameras to detect movement and project graphics onto the lane.

There will be a massive 12 lanes of bowling plus a state-of-the-art arcade, as well as Table Tennis, American Pool tables, Beer Pong, Shuffleboard tables and a Karaoke room. 

There’s a totally new look that will give you old-school entertainment vibes, something Tenpin has never done before.


There will also be an American style eatery, making the space a one-stop-shop for food and drink. Plus – you’ll be pleased to hear there will also be two bars serving up a delicious array of cocktails. 

You can feast on the likes of burgers, hot dogs & sharers and you can even get it all straight to the lane with the on-lane service.

Paul Grayson, GM of the new venue, said: “We’re really pleased to finally be able to reveal our incredible new Manchester venue to the city.

“We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build something that Manchester will love and the team have created an incredible space where guests can drink, eat and play all under one roof.

“We’re excited to be the first Tenpin venue to have all interactive lanes, and we’ve also added Beer Pong, Shuffleboard tables and a Karaoke room to our range of entertainment options for the first time too. We want every person who visits us to feel like they could lose a whole day in here!”


The Manchester site will be Tenpins first new venue this year, and is expected to create more than thirty new jobs in Manchester.

To ensure Covid-compliance, guests can only attend in groups of six people from one social bubble. There will also only be eight bowling lanes open at first to give each group plenty of room to bowl.

Each lane will be completely sanitised after a customer finishes their game, so you can rest easy knowing the area will be nice and clean before your game. 

And for the fashionistas who love bowling shoes – you’ll have to wait a little longer to get your toes inside them again. Wear your own shoes (no heels or wedges or open toes!) for now.


Following the rules, unless you are drinking or eating a face mask must be worn at all times.

Tenpin is open now with prices for a game of bowling, food and drink coming in at just £15pp, and a game of bowling and a drink just £9pp.
