Inside Manchester’s brand new ‘Battle Bar’ at the Printworks

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 17th June 2022

Manchester has got a new competitive gaming experience, as Boom Battle Bar opens its doors.

The UK-first new attraction has taken over a 10,000 sq ft site in the Printworks.

Inside across two floors, there are neon-bathed axe-throwing cages, plus arcade games, pool tables, shuffleboard, and beer pong tables.

Punters will also be able to have a go at augmented-reality darts, where state-of-the-art technology has been used to create different game modes to the pub classic past-time.

There’s also SINGA-powered karaoke booths and a menu of street food like chicken tenders and nachos.


The bar serves Battleground-themed cocktails like the Long Island Iced Tee, a Tiki-inspired Ship Faced, and an Axepresso Martini.

Boom Battle Bar has taken over the old Lazy Lizard nightclub right in the heart of the city centre.
