Following the exciting opening of Boom Battle Bar with axe throwing and AR darts in September, a brand new fun-loving bowling alley has arrived to Edinburgh’s Rose Street. The newly-opened Roxy Lanes offers bowling, batting cages, beer pong, ice-free curling and karaoke booths, to name a few, so be prepared for a day out like no other.
November 18 marked the opening day of the venue on 26 Rose Street and will be the first Scottish branch for the chain with multiple venues across England. On top of an impressive list of activities, Roxy Lanes offers a range of signature cocktails, pizza, nibbles and ‘Roxy dogs’.
Roxy Lanes is open every day 11am until 1am, with Sunday to Wednesday classed as off-peak pricing times, while Thursday to Saturday will be classed as peak times. On top of a bowling alley with ten-pin and duck-pin bowling, the full list of activities is impressive: batting cages for taking some steam off, karaoke rooms for heartfelt singalongs, or ice-free curling for… well, we’re not even sure, to be honest. Moreover, American pool, shuffleboard, basket ball and beer pong are also welcome additions for the competitive souls out there.
The food menu brings the classic comfort foods together, such as the Nacho Pizza loaded with crushed tortilla chips, mozzarella, guacamole, sour cream and chive dressing, jalapeños, chunky salsa, red chilli and spring onion.
The cocktail menu sounds just as good, and we know what we’re having: the Pingstar Spritz with Malfy Arancia gin, elderflower liqueur, peach syrup and prosecco, topped with soda. The Road To Ruin also sounds like a winner, with gin, lime, elderflower, cucumber, mind and soda. On top of the two for £6 shots, it could turn out to be one of those unexpected wild ones.
Count us in, and we cannot wait to have a go at every game at Roxy Lanes!
