If you’ve enjoyed nights out in Manchester, Liverpool or Leeds over the past few years, the chances are you’ll have spent time in one of several popular Roxy Ball Room venues dotted around the north of England.
Since opening its debut venue in Leeds back in 2013, the booze and ball games bar brand has rapidly grown into something of an institution, famous for its vast gaming options, lively atmosphere, and signature cocktails. Sheffield’s thriving nightlife scene is about to get a boost as the next northern city to receive the Roxy treatment.
The newest bar in the impressive Roxy Leisure portfolio will reside in the iconic Telephone House building, which has had many former lives as a popular entertainment venue over the years. Previously The O2 Academy concert venue, Telephone House was also once a ballroom dancing hall and ironically a nightclub known as Roxy Disco during the ’80s and ’90s.
Fresh modern look
The 15,500 sq ft bar is guaranteed to become something of a gaming mecca in the local area and will offer several full-sized American Pool tables, ping pong, shuffleboard, basketball, and duckpin bowling. Roxy will also host bank-shot shuffleboard, crazy pool and several high-tech private karaoke rooms for those looking to show off their skills on the mic.
A tempting American-style food menu of pizzas and mini bites will complement Roxy’s extensive drinks list, which includes both classic and signature cocktails and 16 beers and craft ales. An eclectic rock and indie playlist will complete the vibe of the new Roxy, which will boost the local economy with close to 45 new jobs.
Heart of the city
Joel Mitchell, Brand Development and commercial manager for Roxy Leisure said:
‘’After several years of success in some of the north’s most prolific cities, it was only a matter of time before Roxy found a home in Sheffield. The Telephone House venue is simply perfect, with plenty of room for our wealth of gaming options and a prime location in the heart of the city’s buzzing nightlife scene.’’
‘’Whether you’re out for a bite to eat and a few games of shuffleboard or need to host a lively stag or hen do with lots of different personalities to please, Roxy is the ultimate all-in-one entertainment venue. We look forward to welcoming the people of Sheffield to our newest bar and am confident the unique Roxy formula will resonate with locals.’’
