Printworks Manchester continues its strong performance in 2019 as DTZ Investors announce new lettings that diversify its offer and further cement its position as the destination for entertainment in Manchester.

Having welcomed Treetop Adventure Golf and Escape Reality in 2018, the introduction of a 12-lane Tenpin bowling venue completes an asset management project which will transform 50,000 sq ft of unoccupied space with new day time uses.

Anchored by Vue, Nuffield Health and a spectrum of popular food and beverage operators including Hard Rock Café, Nando’s, Wagamama and more, Printworks ended 2018 with a footfall of over 8.1 million, its highest footfall since 2011. The addition of Tenpin to the brand mix responds to changing leisure and customer trends by extending the Printworks offer and hopes to broaden the appeal of the venue to a wider customer base. Once viewed as a late-night destination, Printworks is becoming a round-the-clock venue for the whole family.

The food and beverage offer at Printworks is also changing. On the ground floor independent restaurant, NY By Night recently opened offering wood stove pizza and craft beer. Additionally, a brand new all-day restaurant, bar and club concept inspired by the garden of Eden opened this summer replacing Tiger Tiger.

A spokesperson for DTZ Investors said: “Since purchasing Printworks in 2017, DTZi has been committed to building on the existing brand offer in order to present our customers a varied mix of national and independent brands that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The introduction of brands such as Tenpin and NY By Night really works towards cementing Printworks as an all-day-round haven of entertainment in the center of Manchester.”

Duncan Garood, CEO of Tenpin, said; “This is an exciting opportunity to develop our city centre proposition in the heart of Manchester’s entertainment hub. The Printworks site will open in 2020, offering visitors 12 lanes of bowling fun and a range of experiential entertainment to enjoy along with a bar and menu of easy to eat, delicious food.”
