A brand new Tenpin venue is opening at Manchester Printworks this week– featuring 12 bowling lanes,four table games, two bars, and one American-style restaurant.
The massive Withy Grove site is Tenpin’s 46th in the UK; spanning two floors.
Table tennis, pool, beer pong, shuffleboard will all be available to play – with a karaoke room open for wannabe singers.
The Manchester venue will also be the first Tenpin with fully-interactive lanes – as high-speed infrared cameras detect movement and project graphics into the room.
The venue’s new food menu, exclusive to Manchester, features burgers, hot dogs and sharers, all available alongside cocktails with an on-lane service.
Guests can enjoy a game of bowling, food and a drink from £15 per person, or a game of bowling and a drink from just £9 per person.
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!”
Tenpin Manchester will be the bowling giant’s first new venue this year and will launch in line with government guidance.
According to owners, more than thirty new jobs will be created in local hospitality as a result.
Eight of the twelve lanes will open initially to ensure space for players, whilst guests are being asked to wear masks and their own shoes to bowl in (refraining from wearing open toes, heels or wedges).
Staff will be conducting regular cleaning of lanes, games and surfaces.
Tenpin Manchester welcomes guests for the first time on 18 September.
Opening hours will be Sunday to Wednesday from 10am until 1am, with a later closing time of 2.30am Thursday to Saturday.
Reservations can be made in advance via the website.
11 arrests after mass brawl breaks out before Oldham vs Wrexham game
At least 11 people are said to have been arrested after a mass brawl broke out before Saturday’s match between Oldham Athletic and Wrexham AFC.
The fight broke out in a residential area in Failsworth just hours before the game between the two National League sides, as locals can be seen watching on as the chaos unfolds.
As you can see in the clip above, dozens of fans from both teams can be seen scrapping and launching projectiles, with a police tactical aid unit driving right through the middle of the crowds.
Superintendent Phillip Hutchinson, Silver Commander for the operation, said that more than 60 fans were hit with a dispersal order and made to leave the area.
Hutchinson went on to warn that “Disorder and violence at football matches is unacceptable and we have launched a post-match investigation to identify more offenders who will be arrested and placed before the courts, where we will seek football banning orders.
It was only last month that Latics player Hallam Hope was ‘seriously injured’ following an assault in the car park after a home game against Chesterfield.
Wrexham, still riding the wave of positivity after being bought by celebrity owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, went on to beat the north Manchester side 2-1 with a last-gasp winner in the 95th minute.
A Manchester gaming bar is throwing a 2000s-themed Myspace party this week, taking it back to a time when studded belts were all the rage and angsty bands like Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, and Taking Back Sunday ruled the airwaves.
Staff at Pixel Bar are getting ready to relive their Myspace Scene kid days with a free-to-enter ‘Myspace social’, which will take place on Tuesday 4 October at the Northern Quarter gaming bar.
Promising a night full of emo, pop punk and scene classics, if you regularly find yourself listening back to old Brand New songs and fingering packets of blue-black hair dye in Boots, this is probably a party for you.
Throughout the night Pixel Bar will be running a 40% industry discount on food and drink for partygoers, as well as hosting games of beer pong and giant Jenga.
Dressing up is not mandatory but it is encouraged, and its bar staff will be going all out in their best emo and Scene kid get-ups – so expect to see a lot of kohl eyeliner, sweeping fringes, and maybe even a few pairs of fingerless gloves.
Sharing the news of the upcoming party on social media, Pixel Bar wrote: “We’re officially bringing Myspace back!
“Head down next Tuesday for our Myspace special. Mega industry discount with 40% off food and drink!
“@camthedj is spinning all the Scene/Emo tracks bringing back the emo fringe.”
Originally hailing from Leeds, Pixel Bar opened its second site in Manchester at the end of 2021 and became an instant hit with the city’s gaming community.
Selling 18 different gaming-themed cocktails, with choices like ‘Jigglypuff’, ‘Princess Perch’ and the ‘Yoshi’s Island Iced Tea’, plus a selection of ‘magic potion’ shots promising do deliver ‘full health’ and ‘stamina’, it has quickly become a haven for gamers.
The bar also has a signature cocktail called ‘Who’s that Pokemon?’ – a combination of vodka, lemon juice, soda and your choice of flavoured syrup.
Elsewhere, you’ll find the newest PlayStation 5, Xbox X Series, and Nintendo platforms, arcade games, high-spec PCs and a downstairs club room playing early 00s pop punk until the early hours.
