As well as BOOM BITES which will feature street food style picks like chicken wings and fries, the BOOM bar is home to a selection of wines, spirits, draught beers and Battleground themed cocktails including a refreshing Long Island Iced Tee, Tiki themed Ship Faced and an electric twist on the classic Margarita, all mixed to perfection by the highly skilled BOOM bar team.
