Hollywood Bowl Group, one of the UK’s leading leisure operators, has today announced the opening date for its latest bowling and entertainment centre at New Mersey in Speke.

Ten-pin bowling fans can look forward to a taste of Tinsel Town with work almost complete on the £2.8 million centre, opening as part of New Mersey’s huge multi-million redevelopment project.

The new centre will bring an exciting, affordable fun and entertainment option to New Mersey when it opens its doors for the first time on Friday 4th November and will also create 30 new jobs in a variety of different front of house and hospitality team roles.


“We’re thrilled to be opening another Hollywood Bowl centre in Liverpool. The New Mersey retail park in Speke has undergone a major refurbishment, which has been highly anticipated in the local area, and we are delighted to bring the UK’s best known ten-pin bowling brand to the park.

“Our cutting-edge bowling lanes, exciting amusements area and great bar and diner make Speke a great example of the latest generation of Hollywood Bowl centres. We continue to build a strong reputation for delivering outstanding and affordable family experiences across the UK, and we can’t wait to welcome guests from across Liverpool to have fun and make memories together in our new state of the art bowling centre.”

Steve Burns, CEO of Hollywood Bowl Group


Hollywood Bowl’s latest centre is set to feature 16 state of the art bowling lanes including high-tech scoring, plus an American style bar and diner featuring a selection of delicious food and drinks, including American classics such as hot dogs, burgers, shakes and signature cocktails.

And to help guests keep the competitive spirit going, Hollywood Bowl’s famous amusement area will offer leading arcade games such as Mario Kart, as well as family favourites such as air hockey and racing games.


“We’re excited to welcome Hollywood Bowl to the park. It’s a fantastic addition to our leisure offering and gives visitors another great way to spend quality time with friends and family – especially in the run up to Christmas!

“Hollywood Bowl joins several other exciting new openings we have planned at the centre, including Pizza Express, Yo! Sushi and Poundland.”

Russell Hall, Centre Manager at New Mersey Retail Park
