Prepare to be bowled over by this bar.
It’s time to look ahead despite summer coming to an end. Luckily with a brand new bar coming to Glasgow soon, there is now definitely something to look forward to and put in our diaries and on calendars. Because, let’s face it, they were looking a little blank earlier on in the year.
Glasgow is set to welcome a new bar with axe throwing, shuffleboard, crazy golf and even more fun activities to enjoy post-lockdown. Boom: Battle Bar is due to arrive in the city hopefully later this year, inside St Enoch Shopping Centre.
The bar, which already has branches in Norwich, Cardiff, Liverpool and plenty of other UK cities coming soon, is heading to Scotland and will host a number of gaming experiences such as crazier golf, which includes what it says is the country’s longest indoor crazy golf course at over 100ft. There will also be hi tech electric darts, funky beer pong, 22ft shuffleboards, American pool, skee ball, boules, curling, axe throwing, pool, and table tennis, plus other activities such as Boom Ball and Marble Tarble.
A spokesman for the bar said: “Alongside our amazing games, we’ve got super tasty street food, delicious ‘Instagrammable’ cocktails, random décor, a photobooth and a comfortable seating area for you to have a drink and check out the games. The perfect place to take your mates, dates and everyone else that fancies having a go.”
The venue is spread across 10,000 square feet on the upper mall, located next to the Vue Cinema, and will offer a variety of cocktails, craft beers, spirits and a street-food style menu featuring chicken wings, gourmet hot dogs, nachos and more. Boom: Battle Bar plans to be open between 11am and 12am from Sunday to Thursday and between 10am and 2am on Friday and Saturday.
Boom: Battle Bar will transform the former Mothercare, ex Tui unit and two premises which have been used by Glasgow Museums into a fun-filled place for post-lockdown tipples and entertainment. All the units have been marketed for retail use, with the old Tui site offered to businesses since 2014.
This new bar recently received a provisional license to sell alcohol on the site by the Glasgow City Council licensing board. However, drinking alcohol whilst axe-throwing will not be permitted and visitors taking part in this activity must book in advance, be over 18 years old and take a breathalyser test before participating.
Stay tuned to find out Boom: Battle Bar’s highly-anticipated opening date.
