Regional leisure operator plans second Birmingham venue

Regional leisure operator Roxy Ball Room looks set to open a second Birmingham venue.

The company, which already has a site in Heath Mill Lane in the city, has applied for a licence to open in a basement site of the former EasyGym on Corporation Street.

The brainchild of Yorkshire-born brothers Matt and Ben Jones, Roxy Ball Room has seen a rapid expansion since opening its first bar in Leeds in 2013. The firm aims to open two new sites a year.

The Corporation Street site would be the company’s 12th. It also has venues in Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham and Manchester.

Last year, Roxy Leisure received a £7.5m investment from private equity firm Foresight Group
