45 jobs to be created at entertainment bar’s latest location

Entertainment bar brand, Roxy Ball Room, is opening its latest venue in Sheffield on Friday 19 August.

The brand is well know for its extensive gaming options, lively atmosphere, and signature cocktails.

The newest bar in the Roxy Leisure portfolio will be in the Telephone House building, which has had many former lives as a popular entertainment venue over the years.

Previously The O2 Academy concert venue, Telephone House was also once a ballroom dancing hall and ironically a nightclub known as Roxy Disco during the 1980s and ’90s.

The 15,500 sq ft new bar will offer several full-sized American Pool tables, ping pong, shuffleboard, basketball, and duckpin bowling.

Roxy will also host bank-shot shuffleboard, crazy pool and several high-tech private karaoke rooms for those looking to show off their skills on the mic.

An American-style food menu of hot dogs, pizzas and mini bites will complement an extensive drinks list, which includes both classic and signature cocktails and 16 beers and craft ales.

An eclectic rock and indie playlist will complete the vibe of the new Roxy, which will boost the local economy with 45 new jobs.

Joel Mitchell, brand development and commercial manager for Roxy Leisure, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our twelfth Roxy venue opening this month.

“It’s been a long time coming and the Telephone House is the perfect space in the heart of the city, with plenty of room for all the new gaming we’re bringing with us.

“The ice-free curling is proving to be very popular with bookers as it’s something totally new to Sheffield. We can’t wait to open and welcome everyone to get their game on from 19 August.”
