What they say:
Black Dog's newest venture is a smart and chic bowling, drinking and eating bar located on Whitworth Street West just off Oxford Road. The press release tells potential visitors that if you love the Black Dog Ballrooms then you'll love Dog Bowl, with "more of the same Black Dog Ballroom brilliantness complete with five ten-pin bowling lanes"
Dog Bowl offers all of the favourite elements of the cool speakeasy and diner serving killer cocktails, pizzas, burgers, hotdogs and salads late into the night. Complete with the New York-inspired style synonymous with the brand’s existing venues it promises to offer an excellent addition to the Oxford Road bar scenes.
What we say:
We in the DesignMyNight office are very excited about Dog Bowl. The Black Dog Ballrooms are both great and we're now enjoying more of the same from their new bowling-centric sister. From the gleaming floors, great lounge seating to the ball dispensers inspired by the brand's own black dog, Bruce the Patterdale Terrier, Dog Bowl is already a proving real hit on the Manchester bar scene.
The Dog Bowl bar serves up those same tasty cocktails that are so loved at Black Dog Ballroom and the burgers, pizzas and hotdogs are all we known and highly-acclaimed in Manchester. Dog Bowl looks set to be another success for the popular Black Dog family and we give it a big thumbs up. Burgers, bowling and ace cocktails, what more could you want?! Enjoy, Manchester.
