Jones Bar Group is to open its second Roxy Ball Room, the ping pong and pool concept, in a 7,000 sq ft unit in Liverpool ONE’s Hanover Street.
Launched in 2013, the Roxy Ball Room offers a mix of gaming, cocktails, beer and bar snacks, including fresh dough pizza and homemade hamburgers. The other branch is in Leeds.
Set across the top floor of 26 College Lane, bordering with Hanover Street, the Roxy Ball Room will feature a number of pool and ping pong tables.
In addition, the bar includes Top Seed, a VIP room available for private hire that can accommodate groups of up to 60 people.
The Roxy Ball Room unit is above the recently announced Wahaca and Reds True BBQ on Hanover Street, next to Turtle Bay.
Jones Bar Group will begin fitting out Roxy Ball Room later this month and is due to open in time for Christmas.
Miles Dunnett, director of portfolio management at Grosvenor Fund Management, said: “Roxy Ball Room is a great complement to the Liverpool ONE leisure offer, aligning perfectly with our ambition to continually provide something new for visitors. As an independent operator, Roxy Ball Room also adds to the eclectic nature of Liverpool ONE.
“The brand is about having fun; it creates an additional reason to visit, or to extend a trip, and highlights the breadth of Liverpool ONE’s appeal. We are very excited with Jones Bar Group’s plans for how they will use this standout space to deliver an engaging, social, experience.”
According to Grosvenor, catering sales at Liverpool ONE are up 12.5% year-to-date, continuing to significantly out-perform the national benchmark.
