Expect more of the same Black Dog brilliantness but with the addition of five full length ten-pin bowling lanes. The interior is shiny and contemporary, with gleaming wooden floors ready for prospective kingpins to strut their stuff. 

Expect classic and tasty signature cocktails at the bar alongside a great selection of beers, wines and spirits. Food-wise, you can enjoy delicious pizzas, burgers, hotdogs and stunning salads late into the night. The kitchen is open until 1am with a bespoke evening menu served from 11pm to cater for late-night hunger pangs. Ideal for a fun night out with friends in Manchester, the bowling, drinking and dining combination at Dog Bowl is a massive hit and will be ideal for anyone looking for something a little different.

I booked this venue last week on ‘DesignMyNights’ recommendation and in relation to this we found the following:- Booking was tricky, re timing the meal and the bowling. Service is very pleasant & tasty food. The venue fun, clean and the decor worked well. re Type of night: Eating. Food is slow but a good approximation to American menus with scaled down portions. But the tiny bitter doughnut balls don’t work. re Type of night: Happily Affordable. This is debatable dependant upon hiring the bowling lanes. At £8 per person per game it can get comparatively pricey collectively and individually if you want more than one game. Lanes are great for the small space though. re Type of night: Chatting and Drinking, In this arches venue with associated acoustics over an excitable bowling alley all competing with very loud music you need to shout rather than chat. re Type of night: Something a little different . It certainly is different and very much a fun venue with the bowling dynamic and the social competitive element. Great for small groups. The doorman ensures that the clientele are in keeping with the ethos of this bar restaurant. Worth a visit and should be applauded for originality (fab bowling lanes) and moving away from the main stream menu.

Really like Dog Bowl. Much funkier and more fun than All Stars. Sorry All Stars! The bowling was over too quickly so we'll book two games next time, but still great fun all round.

Had such a fun night at Dog Bowl!! The staff were really friendly and the cocktails were awesome. We had to wait a while for a lane because we hadn't booked and it was quite busy. Such a great place, we'll definitely be returning!
