Sunday, 11th April 2021, 11:22 am

The brand's Merrion Street bar has undergone a major transformation while it has been closed during lockdown, with new games in the larger three-floor venue.

The basement level will feature a new Bank Shot Shuffleboard - a challenging twist on the popular game with a board that loops back on itself, making it more challenging to get the puck into the scoring zone.

There are new games on offer in the larger three-floor venue

There will be Duckpin Bowling lanes, a game that combines ten-pin bowling with skittles, private karaoke rooms, arcade machines and Crazy Pool.

The ground floor bar will feature five beer pong tables, while the first floor boasts four full-size American pool tables, two shuffleboards, two beer pong tables and two further ping pong tables.

The beer, food and cocktail menus will return, with a selection of draught lagers and craft beers including Roxy Lager, Camden Pale and ABK Weissbier.

Hungry gamers can feast on a menu including loaded nachos, chicken wings, pizzas, and burgers.

The ground floor will feature new arcade machines including basketball

Gaming will reopen on May 17, but Roxy's outdoor seating will reopen on April 12 as part of the Merrion Street party - a 200 capacity outdoor drinking area with live DJs.

Seven independent businesses on the street have joined forces to install a 50m canopy, inspired by the successful Merrion Street Festival in the summer of 2020.

Roxy brand development manager Joel Mitchell said: "’We are all extremely excited about taking our Merrion Street venue to another level.

"The people of Leeds are long overdue for a big night out on the town. Roxy Ball Room is coming back in a big way to help create memories that can make up for all those special occasions that we’ve all missed out on.

‘"The bar is ready to go from May 17 and I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, from our loyal customers to co-workers and friends from our neighbouring bars.

"I'm confident the people of Leeds are going to love our new-look, supersized venue when it finally reopens, and I know jaws will drop when they check out the new basement bar and see the massive selection of gaming that is now on offer."
