New sports bar and entertainment venue for Burton
Burton-based commercial estate agents Rushton Hickman Ltd have leased a 5,500 square foot retail unit at 6/8 Station St, Burton upon Trent as a new sports bar and leisure venue.
The premises had historically operated as a bar, with several name and ownership changes over time.
The `Break Room Sports Bar’ is set to open on Sunday September 18 and was conceptualized by two local businessmen, Ryan Gibbs and Paul Fox, who are both experienced tail sports players.
Ryan said: “We will offer high quality billiards and snooker facilities, as well as interactive smart darts, which cannot be found anywhere in the region. These facilities will be accompanied by a fully stocked bar and freshly made cocktails, with live sports broadcast in the club.
“The city currently lacks entertainment venues, forcing its residents to travel farther for leisure facilities. Our goal is to provide quality entertainment facilities within the city center, to entice people to stay in their neighborhood.
“We will ultimately promote tail sports to complement the abundance of talent we have in the county and high quality local leagues. This will be supported by a new concept of “Smart Darts” which has taken major cities by storm offering people a new leisure activity and a good time. »
Paul said: “The break room will provide the people of Burton on Trent with a much needed entertainment venue, where they are encouraged to bring friends and family for a competitive but friendly night out. Burton on Trent has a great history of pubs and bars in the town centre, and we believe the very large pool and snooker community in the area will certainly welcome our new club.
“For a long time the city has hosted large and very popular tail sports leagues, with ever-increasing participation and we are well placed to provide teams in these leagues with a club with the best facilities around. Ryan and I know the tail sports scene, having played at a very high level for many years.
“With the support of the local city, The Break Room can be the go-to place when planning a night out, for an experience that keeps customers coming back again and again. We hope to have something for everyone, it’s not just a pool and snooker club. The Break Room Sports Bar will be a place where people can enjoy a freshly made cocktail with friends or put their competitive spirit to the test on one of our activities.
“The former Camino Bar premises was an obvious choice of property for us as it is primarily an open plan which allows us to maximize space to accommodate 2 full size pool tables and 8 English pool tables as well a game area dedicated to darts. The downtown Burton location is absolutely ideal for us.
“Simon and the entire Rushton Hickman team provided exceptional service throughout the process and always responded quickly to any questions. We can’t thank them enough for helping to make our dream come true! »
Rushton Hickman commercial estate agent Simon Walker said: “This latest town center rental is even more fantastic news for the communities of Burton upon Trent and surrounding areas. Finding a suitable tenant, with an ideal use for a large empty 5,500 square foot downtown business, is by no means an easy task. We are delighted to have accepted this rental and of course the tenant and the owner are absolutely delighted that we have reached an agreement for them.
