WATCH: First look inside the huge new Roxy Ball Room in the Cavern Quarter
5 years ago
The paint has just about dried and the bowling lanes are oiled and ready to go!
The new Roxy Ball Room super-venue on Rainford Square in the Cavern Quarter opens its door officially on Friday 3rd May and we have been lucky enough to get a sneak peek of this gaming and leisure Mecca
With 16,000 square feet to cover, we were intrigued to see how these guys have filled the site of the former BHS café and suffice to say we were blown away!
There’s multiple ping-pong tables, shuffleboard, beer pong, crazy golf and even a 4 lane bowling alley. The whole place has been transformed into a super-cool gaming nirvana that is going to take the city’s leisure scene to a whole new level.
The walls are covered in epic street art murals with more than a nod to some of our city’s most famous experts plus there are multiple giant screens throughout the venue so you won’t miss a second of any must-see sporting action. The central bar area is huge and there are plenty of cosy booths and handy seating areas if you need to refuel with a pizza, burger or a pint or two in between games.
The staff are really on point and the whole place is buzzing with the super-friendly, relaxed vibe the guys have become known for in their College Lane venue. Our advice – get your game face on and get yourself down to Roxy for a drinking, dining and gaming experience that is not to be missed!
HERE’S 10 REASONS WHY ROXY BALL ROOM ARE SET TO CHANGE THE GAME (AND GAMING) IN LIVERPOOL…
1 – BOWLING
Roxy Ball Room will be showing off their pins this Spring with a 4-lane bowling alley. The first lanes in Liverpool city centre in donkeys, this give us the perfect excuse to get on our bowling shoes and strike a pose for Insta!
2 – MINI GOLF
Get the gang together and make your way through 9 holes of mini golf! First one to sink a hole-in-one gets the round in…
3 – PING PONG
A Roxy favourite that already has a home at the Hanover Street venue, expect even more tables to enjoy the game that was once know as Whiff Whaff. Seriously.
4 – POOL
An all-time barroom classic. Just make you agree on the rules before you start. Two shot carry is not a thing!
5 – SHUFFLEBOARD
Using a cue to move coloured disks across the giant playing surface, you’ll need to master the balance of offensive and defensive play to overcome your opponent in this addictive strategy game. Show us your disks!
6 – ARCADE GAMES
Roxy will be filling every available inch of the new site with retro arcade games and amusement classics. We’re hoping for indoor basketball and loads of grab machines; they’re what £1 coins are designed for!
7 – BEER PONG
We all know how this works by now. Get a load of red cups, chuck some beer in (or prosecco) and do your best to stay sober by getting your balls wet.
8 – LIVE SPORTS
With a minimum of fifteen screens and two projectors, the new Roxy Ball Room will be a must visit for sport for all your live Sky Sports & BT Sports action.
9 – BOOKABLE AREAS
When it comes to booking a party, Roxy have got you boxed. Rather than just booking tables at the venue, you’ll be able to reserve your very own area complete with dedicated gaming tables just for you. This is a sure fire way to boost your popularity at the office!
10 – THE PLAYLIST
Forget the bowling, mini-golf, ping pong, shuffleboard etc. for a second. Roxy Ball Room is worth a visit for its rock and indie playlist alone. It’s that’s good, we’re still trying to copy it on to our office Spotify.
