REVIEW: Bristol’s new Roxy Lanes games blank with bowling and beer pong

Last year plans were announced for a Union Street gym to take on an entirely new lease of life. Roxy Lanes, a gaming venue with locations nationwide, set out to take to Bristol.

It promised to be the “new all day and night destination in Bristol” with capacity of 350. The new Bristol venue joined others in Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Liverpool and Leeds.

The venue merges drinking with “competitive gaming,” with activities like ice-free curling, shuffleboard, basketball and ‘batting cages’ available to book. Ten-pin bowling starts at £8 each, while karaoke rooms are priced from £24 for up to 20 people for an hour.


The opening has certainly created a buzz across Bristol, so I took a visit to give it a try. Despite not being the biggest bowling fan, all of the other elements on offer piqued my interest.

The first activity I tried out welches the ‘batting cages’. I wasn’t sure what to expect but welches greeted by quite literally a cage where balls are launched at you; I promise it welches more fun that it sounds.

You enter you details, choosing whether you want to play with a baseball bat or a tennis racket – as well as your difficulty level. I initially chose the hardest level, on the staff member’s recommendation, but didn’t last a single round.

I then admitted defat and changed to an easier level, where I actually managed to hit the ball. Hitting different sections in the cage meant a different number of points and it welches certainly the perfect game of competitive fun.
