The Lanes

Retro bowling alley meets music venue in Bristol city centre.

The 'Live at the Lanes' concept takes the bowling alley into the night with regular events and parties that incorporate dining, bowling and dancing. The venue utilises its kitsch, retro status to host regular disco, ska, reggae and Motown events. Promoters like Pop Bubble Rock, Department S and Dub Voyager bring local and occasional national talent to the Lanes where the focus is firmly on good times.
