Bristol is spoiled for choice with socialising spots, but Roxy Lanes has bowled us over. The ten-pin bowling destination offers so much more than just bowling as well. Since opening in May, it has become one of Bristol’s go-to destinations for mate-date socials and is more than just a bowling alley – with tons of activities to try out under just one roof.
Run by Roxy Leisure group, renowned for their fun-filled entertainment venues Roxy Ballroom across the country including Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Liverpool and Leeds. The company’s newest venture on Bristol’s Union Street offers a range of activities besides ten-pin bowling, you and your mates can have a crack at the likes of beer pong, pool and ice-free curling.
The Union Street location boasts eight full-size bowling lanes, batting cages, screens showing live sport, shuffle boards, duck-pin bowling, full size pool tables, basketball shooting hoops, beer pong, arcade games and ice-free curling, meaning there is something for everyone to get involved in. Plus, the people of Bristol will be able to sing their hearts out to their favourite tunes as Roxy Lanes also offer karaoke rooms for up to 20 people – now that’s what we call a party!
You can continue to let the good times roll by also ordering a range of drinks from the bar at Roxy Lanes like beer, wine and spirits as well as classic cocktails like Long Island Iced Tea to signature ones like Shuffle Hustle (Captain Morgans, Chambord, lime juice, cranberry, sugar syrup and fresh raspberries). You’ll also be able to tuck into the likes of moreish pizza slices, skin on fries, crispy chicken and mac ‘n’ cheese bites to help fuel (or recover from) your chosen activities.
