Leeds bar & bowling alley to move to 15,000 sq ft new site

Roxy Lesiure's bar and bowling alley brand, Roxy Lanes is relocating from its current Leeds location on Bond Street to The Light on The Headrow.

The massive 15,000 sq ft venue, due to open on 11 February is three times the size of its Bond Street predecessor, which opened in Leeds back in 2014. This brand-new gaming hub will incorporate all the elements of existing Roxy venues along with some new games that have never been seen in Leeds before.

The ground floor will play host to a large bar area where customers can choose from a selection of craft beers, cocktails and spirits, as well as slices and fries, The games will begin here for those who want to shoot some hoops with two Basketball Machines.

The basement area will be dedicated to gaming, with 10 bowling lanes, massive shuffleboards, American pool tables, air hockey, ice curling and a massive second bar area.

Something new for this venue is the addition of two ice curling lanes where players slide their stones down the smooth surface of the lane, aiming for the bullseye. The only chill in the air will come from your opponents as this is an ice-free curling lane, one of only a few in the whole of the UK.

The site is also the perfect place to watch the latest sporting action, with live BT and Sky Sports showing everywhere, even at the end of the bowling lanes - a perfect addition in time for the 6 Nations and World cup which are both taking place in 2022.

Children can get a slice of the action up until 5 pm when accompanied by an adult.

General Manager Cameron Mosley said, “This is an incredible location, right in the heart of Leeds city centre.

' Whilst the Bond Street venue was a great starting point for us as a brand, it’s now time to up the ante and we’re delighted to be able to expand and offer our customers even more of that Roxy Lanes experience, the demand is already going through the roof for our new venue and we can’t wait to take gaming In Leeds to the next level!
