'Booze and ball games' venue Roxy Lanes has submitted a licensing application for a new venue in Cheltenham

Cheltenham High Street could soon become home to Gloucestershire's first Roxy Lanes venue, after it submitted a licensing application to Cheltenham Borough Council. 

The brand, which already has a 'booze and ball games' venue in nearby Bristol, has put in a licensing application for 105 to 107 High Street, which houses New Look on the ground and first floors.

While it's not clear exactly what's in store for the Cheltenham venue, the licensing application states that the premises will be operated as a 'bowling alley/competitive socialising venue' with activities including performing recorded music, showing films, offering late night refreshment and selling alcohol.

The proposed opening hours are 11am to 12.30am Sunday to Wednesday and 11am to 2.30am Thursday to Saturday. 

The famous Bristol venue features ten pin and duck pin bowling; batting cages; karaoke rooms; ice-free curling; American pool; shuffleboard; basketball; and beer pong, with the Roxy Lanes website saying there are 'new and different games with every opening.' 

There's no proposed opening date for the Cheltenham venue just yet, but the expiry date for consultations on the application is Monday 28 November 2022.
