Big Fang Collective, the Liverpool-based leisure group, will launch three new multi-concept destinations in London, Bristol and Nottingham, later this year.

The group behind Golf Fang, Big Fang Karaoke, Big Fang Arcade and Nothing Cheezy has signed contracts and started the process of licensing applications for the three prime central locations.

The Nottingham location is set to launch in early summer, while the Bristol and London venues will open their doors later in the year.

The new site in London will be the collective’s first expansion into the capital, with moe than 30,000 sq ft of space in Waterloo. The news comes after the experiential leisure operator received £5.5m in growth capital, to support the business’s plans for further expansion across the UK.

Big Fang Collective, founded by Danny Bolger and Kip Piper, already operates six sites around the UK, employing more than 260 people, with each of the venues offering a combination of crazy golf, DJs and signature cocktails inside a cathedral of graffiti.

The group has expanded its proposition with multiple leading concepts including in-house pizzeria Nothing Cheezy and Big Fang Karaoke, an immersive karaoke destination, both of which launched in Liverpool in 2023.

The collective recently launched its first Big Fang Arcade in Sheffield, which will also be rolled out into its Cardiff destination later this month.

A Big Fang Collective spokesperson said: “We are excited to be able to confirm that we are in the process of launching new sites in Bristol, Nottingham and London. The cities provide the perfect location for the Big Fang brand, with creative communities and thriving atmospheres, we think we will fit right in.

“We’re still to confirm the Big Fang brands launching in each site, but we’re planning multi-concept venues that bring together immersive experiences for our audiences. We look forward to sharing more about our growth journey in each city.”

Backed by recognised leisure, lifestyle and entertainment specialist, IMBIBA, Big Fang Collective has seen a rapid growth since its launch.

With a focus on readying the brand’s multi-concept national roll-out, Big Fang Collective’s vision is to change the way the UK enjoys itself, blowing people’s minds with show-stopping experiential venues.

With each new launch, Big Fang Collective takes steps to continually collaborate with artists, designers, chefs, joiners, creatives, and DJs, from the local communities it embeds itself in, creating an authentic and diverse experience for its rapidly growing customer base.
