BOOM! The Victoria Centre in Southend Welcomes Boom Battle Bar 

RivingtonHark are delighted to announce that the Victoria Shopping Centre in Southend has added to its ever-growing list of attractions with the news that Boom Battle Bar is coming to the centre later this year.  

The newest leisure attraction to Southend brings people together to compete in a variety of crazy games in a fun, social way. Combining nine-hole mini golf, darts, ping-pong, virtual reality, shuffleboarding, karaoke, pool and axe throwing with an urban themed bar. Boom Battle Bar spearheads a brand-new era in social entertainment venues.   

The tenant will take over the unit formerly housing Tangs, covering approximately 10,500 square feet across both the ground and first floor. Contracts have been exchanged and the team at Boom Battle Bar is set to begin works on fitting out the unit, including creating a new entrance to the venue, with a planned summer 2023 opening date. 

Richard Harpham, Chief Executive Officer at Boom Battle Bar, said: “We’re excited to be bringing the Boom experience to the iconic Southend-on-Sea with our newest Boom Battle Bar venue. After the success of our venues in Chelmsford and Lakeside, we can’t wait to welcome crowds of locals and tourists alike.

“We look forward to them playing our most sought-after games, from axe throwing to prosecco, beer pong, and singing in our Boom Box private karaoke booths. With cocktails, street food, live sport on large screens and DJ’s spinning – we just cannot wait to get the doors open.”

Will Ashdown, Asset Manager at RivingtonHark commented: “The letting to Boom Battle Bar is an important step in our continuing journey to revitalise the centre and, in particular, our aim of bringing in more leisure activities into the scheme.

“It has been great to deal with the Boom Battle Bar team who have shown their passion about bringing their business into Southend and who share our view on the positive impact we envisage this letting will have on the city. We’re confident that Boom Battle Bar will be the new go-to place for fun-seekers in Southend and we can’t wait to see them open later this year.”

The new Boom Battle Bar is due to open in summer 2023. For more information about the bar and other attractions at Victoria Shopping Centre in Southend, please visit the centre’s website.
