Popular shooting simulation bar and restaurant Point Blank is offering thrill-seekers the chance to book shooting sessions for free this week.

Following the news that the venue is able to remain open under Tier 2 restrictions, Point Blank is celebrating.

And it’s doing so in a way that only Point Blank knows how by giving visitors the chance to book shooting simulation sessions for free all day every day when you spend over £15 per head on food and drink at the Manchester and Newcastle branches.

This unmissable offer isn’t sticking around for long though, so you’ll have to be quick on the draw and head down there this week if you want to take advantage of it.

Not only that, but for the first time ever, it is opening its doors to those under 18 years of age and offering free shooting over the half term break to experience a family-friendly and COVID-secure day out that is quite literally like nothing else in the country, let alone Manchester.


If you’re looking for somewhere completely different to occupy the kids’ minds and let off some steam during the school holidays, then you really need look no further.

Unfamiliar with the concept of this unique venue? Haven’t heard of Point Blank before?


Let us explain.

Point Blank is the shooting simulation speakeasy that didn’t take long to find its target in Manchester.

This newly-established player in the city’s activity and hospitality scene – which arrived with a bang last summer and has sold out almost every Friday and Saturday that it has been open since – is the UK’s first fully-immersive shooting simulation range based on Deansgate.


It offers customers the chance to experience the very latest first-person firing technology, but that’s only half the story.

While there’s no doubting it’s certainly a hive of activity for thrill-seekers, it’s also a spot for the cocktail crowd looking for something new, a den for the foodies hoping to try a different spin on classic night-time cuisine, and in a time pre-COVID, it was also quite the popular pre-drinks space for the party people looking to warm up before the nightclub.

And now, you can add family-friendly day out destination to that list too.

As well as it’s impressive Prohibition era-inspired bar serving an eclectic collection of tipples and mocktails, Point Blank’s extensive menu takes inspiration from our transatlantic cousins.

It specialises in hot wings, hot dogs and hot cheese nachos – which remain firm-favourites among customers – and there’s also mac and cheese nuggets, lemon sole bites, BBQ belly pork, and wide selection of top-notch veggie and vegan dishes to get stuck into as well.


With all of this on offer, and the free shooting sessions available for a limited time only this week, you’re going to want to get your slot secured now as Point Blank has said that the ranges are booking up fast.
