Roxy Leisure looking to open first site in Scotland


Roxy Leisure, chaired by Mark McQuater (pictured), operator of the Roxy Lanes and Roxy Ballroom concepts, is looking to open its first site in Scotland – on the former old BHS site on Edinburgh’s Princess Street.

Mark is former chief executive of Revolution Bars Group, and the site’s basement will be converted to include six bowling lanes, two duckpin bowling lanes, ten American pool tables and five ping pong tables.

Roxy Leisure opened its largest site to date for its Roxy Ball Room concept earlier in the summer – a 21,000 square foot of space at the 200,000 square foot leisure complex, The Cornerhouse, in Nottingham.

It already operates a site in the city’s Thurland Street. Roxy Leisure currently operates 12 sites across Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham under the Roxy Ball Room, Roxy Lanes and Roxy Arcade banners.

Last year, the company secured a £7.5m investment from private equity firm Foresight.
