City Buzz: New mini golf course to open at Leeds city centre bar

Have your say

NO-ONE can bring their A-game in a competitive environment when they’ve had a drink. That’s just a fact.

And it’s a fact which Roxy Ballroom has cleverly preyed on – offering punters everything from beer pong, table tennis, pool and even bowling to entice their more competitive visitors in for the evening.

But just when you thought you’d embarrassed yourself enough in front of your friends, the owners go and bring out the big guns, or should I say clubs.

That’s right, Roxy Ballroom is opening a nine-hole mini golf course.

City Buzz can reveal the builders are putting the finishing touches to the new crazy golf area as we speak, which will be above the venue on Albion Street.

Owners the Jones Bar Group are surely onto a winner here and seem to know exactly what they’re doing – they’re already behind successful bars LAB and Brooklyn, to name a few.

The official unveiling will be in the next couple of months (but don’t worry – City Buzz will keep you posted and will be there on launch day too).

As someone who has lost at pool and beer pong on several visits to the venue, this will probably be a similar result, but I’ll still give it my best shot.
