Let them eat pizza

New venue serving up pizza and ping-pong set to open in Digbeth.

A new activity bar is set to open in an up-and coming area of Digbeth on Friday 12th July.

Dropshot’s entertainment and multi-use activity bar which features music, Olympic grade table tennis tables and deck shuffleboards among its many attractions, also offers specially prepared pizzas cooked in a wood fired pizza oven, especially imported from Italy, as well as a range of craft beers, bar food and some amazing cocktails, both classic and modern.

The licensed entertainment venue, which can cater for up to 250 people, is situated fifty yards from the Custard Factory, in the heart of the redeveloped area of Digbeth Birmingham.

Sanj Basra (right), managing director at Drop Shot , said: “My family has over thirty years history in the manufacturing trade. We have owned and run several businesses and currently export globally to over thirty countries. I have personally been a local businessman for twelve years.

“Being entrepreneurial I have been recently exploring for ways to enter new markets so that I could diversify my business portfolio, and converting this building that we have owned for over fifty years into an activity bar is opening a new chapter and opportunity for me, one that I am very excited about.”

Jake Murphy (left), General Manager, said: “I have worked in several industries since the age of 19, but my passion for hospitality and entertainment has never really gone away. I am keen to provide a safe and engaging multi-use entertainment venue where anyone of energy and enthusiasm can congregate, exchange ideas and thrive. Working alongside Sanjeev, opening Dropshot enables me to do that and being in such a prime location is a bonus.”
