After some very serious times in recent years, our New Year’s resolution is to embrace big-kid behaviour in 2023. Roxy Ball Room in Digbeth has been the ultimate destination in Birmingham for anyone looking to let out their inner child since opening in 2020. But in what is still a grown-up atmosphere.
This February, Roxy Leisure will double the fun by opening a second location in the city. Meaning fulfilling our resolution will be twice as easy. Expect all the excitement of the Digbeth site as it continues with its signature “booze and ball games” mantra. Only bigger and better.
This means plenty of competitive games such as full-size American pool tables to beat your mates, ping-pong on Olympic standard tables, as well as basketball, shuffleboard, ten-pin bowling and more. And if you truly want to feel like you’re in somebody’s university accommodation—only with nicer beer and without the piles of washing up—head to the beer-pong area and hone your skills as you down pints.
If you get hungry then you can grab some food while you play. Roxy’s signature food and drink offerings return. With snacks for the peckish and pizzas, burgers, nachos and chicken wings for the ravenous.
You can wash it all down with a huge selection of drinks such as craft beer and premium spirits. And, if you’re feeling fancy, there are plenty of delicious-sounding cocktails on offer. They pride themselves in particular on the ping star martini (we see what they did there).
The new Roxy Ball Room will be located adjacent to Victoria Square, home to Birmingham’s Museum and Art Gallery and the city’s yearly Frankfurt Christmas Market. It will take up home in the long empty spot previously held by Kong before the pandemic. Meanwhile, their Digbeth site will re-brand and become a Roxy Lanes. It marks a shift away from ball games to mainly bowling.
“Birmingham is a creative, exciting, and thriving city,” said Roxy Leisure’s Commercial Manager, Joel Mitchell. “Thanks to the success of our first Birmingham venue, we’re now excited to announce that we will be expanding our Birmingham offering with a second site in the heart of the city centre. Of course, guests can still expect our signature ‘booze and ball games’ ethos that we know they have come to love!”
This fun-filled venue will open its doors in February. To book your spot head here.
