Lane7, the bowling alley, bar, restaurant, ping pong, karaoke and arcade games concept led by Tim Wilks, is to open a second site in August and first in Scotland under its Gutterball concept in Glasgow’s St Enoch Centre at its junction with Buchanan Street in the former 28,000 square foot Hamleys of London toy store.
Lane7 is believed to have signed a 20-year lease. The company entered the bowling bar market when it launched Gutterball Alley in North Shields at the end of 2019.
It will be joined at the St Enoch Centre later this year by Scotland’s first Boom: Battle Bar, as well new restaurants from Cosmo, Nando’s, Delhi Darbar and Donut King.
Lane7 operates ten eponymous bowling venues across the UK, with its latest site opening at the Edinburgh St James scheme.
