After some very serious times in recent years, we should all be embracing some big-kid behaviour in 2023. Playing more games and drinking more beer, generally just getting more silly. 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, might we add, in what still feels like a very grown-up atmosphere.
Roxy Leisure clearly agrees that more people in Birmingham should be letting loose. Doubling the fun in Brum, it has opened (February 10) a second location in the city centre. Expect all the excitement of the Digbeth site as it continues with its signature “booze and ball games” mantra. Only bigger and better. This new activity bar has made a competitive evening of games with your mates twice as easy.
Expect 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, plenty of delicious-sounding cocktails are on offer. They pride themselves in particular on the ping star martini (we see what they did there).
The new Roxy Ball Room is located adjacent to Victoria Square, home to Birmingham’s Museum and Art Gallery and the city’s yearly Frankfurt Christmas Market. It takes up home in the long empty spot previously held by Kong before the pandemic. Meanwhile, their Digbeth site has had a re-brand and become a Roxy Lanes. It marks a shift away from ball games to mostly 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 is open now. To book your spot head here.
