A new £1.2million adventure bar with axe-throwing and mini-golf is set to open in Ipswich in April.

Boom Battle Bar will open its doors in Ipswich town centre at the end of April and looks to offer "high octane competitive fun".

It fills the vacant slot in the Buttermarket left by Coast to Coast which closed in 2020 during the pandemic.

Richard Beese, co-founder, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled we have been granted a licence for our new store in the town.

“Boom Battle Bar is a new player in experiential retail offering high octane competitive fun with an eclectic mix of games that includes axe throwing,  augmented reality darts, crazier golf, shuffleboards,  karaoke, beer pong and even indoor curling.

“Accompanied by a range of craft beers, cocktails and street food, Boom will deliver the ultimate competitive high for its customers."

It is estimated the new business will create up to 50 jobs.
