A spokesperson for Pub Invest Group said:

“Famously bohemian, Liverpool’s Bold Street has always had an independence and charm unmatched by any other area of the city. The venue has been transformed into an interactive bar and arcade. Guests can sit and relax with a drink or immerse themselves in a game of FIFA. Playbox has also created 20 full and part-time jobs in the city centre hospitality sector. “

The venue shifts from an adult playground to a full-fledged bar in the evening with DJs and live music taking partygoers right the way through until 4am, with all of the gaming machines fully functioning until closing.
