A LATE-NIGHT boutique bowling alley is due to launch in the city next week.

Bowlarama, described as Scotland’s first-ever late-night boutique bowling alley, will give away 100 free games of bowling on Thursday to celebrate their opening. 

The venue on Glassford Street will give customers the freebie on a first-come, first-served basis with one game of bowling available per person between 12 and 5 pm. 

Glasgow Times:

The entertainment venue has four state-of-the-art bespoke bowling lanes, powered by next-generation technology that includes automated bumpers, high tech Vector HD scoring and sophisticated neon lights that can be tailored to each player.

It is also fully licensed with a quirky Tiki bar, comfortable snug and 80 cover restaurant serving up food, cocktails, and snacks.

It will open every night until 3 am and also offer retro arcade game machines.

Glasgow Times:

The venue is independently operated by restaurateur Ian McColm, who opened Tiki Bar and Kitsch Inn on Bath Street in 2010.

He said: "We wanted to create a bold and fun space with a relaxed environment for Glasgow to enjoy. 

“We’ve had a fantastic response from the city. A lot of bookings, enquiries and general excitement for the smashing of our bowling lanes. 

“Whether you’re looking for somewhere new to go for a bite to eat after you finish work with your colleagues, a few cocktails and a bowl on a date, or for lounging in our arcade, Bowlarama offers something for everyone.”
