Fancy a change from watching a game of footy on the big screen? Think you can score better than some of the pros? Well, a new interactive football bar that’s heading to Birmingham allows you to be the striker and go for goal.
The football-based social and dining entertainment experience, which is the first of its kind in the UK, is expected to arrive in Birmingham in 2023. TOCA Social will set the stage for a three-pronged attack of gourmet food, drinks and shooting footballs at Birmingham’s Bullring and Grand Central. That’s a perfect hat-trick if we’ve ever heard of one.
Up to 12 players will be able to take part in their own personal booths for plenty of immersive football games, which is sure to kick up a storm. You’ll be treated to innovative ball-tracking delivery and tracking technology to be set up with a peach of a game experience for all ages.
TOCA Social will take over the top floor of the Bullring where Debenhams was situated and will also be joined by a Marks and Spencer branch too. The brand recently launched its first venue at The O2 in London, boasting three bars, selfie booths and arcade machines.
And, if that wasn’t enough, guests will get to enjoy food from a modern Americana menu with twists. Expect the likes of Nashville hot chicken sandwiches and Ahi tuna poke bowls, topped with their dessert room of “Willy Wonka” inspired concoctions. Plus, you’ll get to boogie along to some tunes from their DJ booth while sipping on one of their unique cocktails.
TOCA Social president, Alex Harman, said: “TOCA Social are excited to bring the world’s first interactive football and dining experience to the UK’s second-largest city. Bullring is an iconic destination, and we are delighted to play our part in its repositioning towards social experiences.”
