You Gotta Wear The Shoes To Bowl

Dog Bowl captures the tribes of Manchester for its second bowling film

Published on November 14th 2013.

You Gotta Wear The Shoes To Bowl

MANCHESTER'S hipsters, BMX-ers, rockers and indie kids are the stars of the latest video from the team at Dog Bowl.

The video shows the various tribes of the city centre, dressed in skinny jeans, five-panels (a type of cap, for those who don’t know) and bowling jewellery as they converge on the bowling venue, where they are dismayed to discover that they have to wear the shoes to bowl.

Look out for star of the show, Black Dog Ballroom’s very own Bruce the Patterdale Terrier in his debut acting role.

6K00_MDog Bowl is the third venture from Black Dog Ballroom and is based on Whitworth Street West, facing The Ritz. The venue mixes Black Dog Ballroom charisma with a bar, restaurant, and five gleaming ten-pin bowling lanes.

There are ball dispensers inspired by Bruce the dog, shiny wooden floors and fantastic Tex-Mex dishes made with only the best local produce.

Dog Bowl serves top-notch quesadillas, BBQ grilled steak, fried chicken, fajitas, and bespoke cocktails late into the night. The main menu is served throughout the day until 11pm.
