Energi Beats

When it comes to ENERGI BEATS is there a better way to spend your Friday night? From 8pm the lights turn down, the music goes up and the excitement begins. Two hours to jump out to our resident DJ, soak in the party atmosphere and chill out with one of our famous Slushies.
Strictly no parents allowed to bounce..!

I really rate it! Well organised, clean, lots of fun and nice cafe too.
