Archie’s has taken Manchester and beyond by storm with their delicious (and halal-friendly) burgers but now the American-style diner is set to change the game. Combining the Manchester-born brand’s iconic food and pink décor with a roller rink and arcade, Archie’s is launching a brand new experience, Archie’s Atomic, coming soon to Trafford Palazzo.
Opening in summer 2024, Archie’s Atomic is a first of its kind leisure concept by American-style diner Archie’s and will consist of a 5,000 sq. ft roller rink, a family arcade area and an Archie’s milkshake bar. Located on Trafford Palazzo’s ground floor, adjacent to NERF Action Xperience and opposite SEA LIFE Manchester Aquarium, the concept will allow both beginner and experienced roller-skaters to enjoy the hobby in a vibrant indoor location and experience the vast amusement arcade.
Since opening the doors to its first restaurant on Manchester’s Oxford Road in 2010, Archie’s has become a much-loved brand in the North-West of England. The operator now has sites across Manchester, Birmingham, and Liverpool, including the recent opening as part of the UK’s first NERF Action Xperience site, also at Trafford Palazzo.
Mohammed Amer Rafiq, Managing Director at Archie’s, commented: “Introducing an Archie’s branded leisure concept has been in the works for a while now, and deciding on a location was a vital part of the process of bringing it to life. At Trafford Palazzo, we have a ready-made destination catered perfectly towards experience-led retail and leisure.
“The new concept will have all the excellent food, drinks, and décor you would expect from any of our Archie’s sites, but with exciting activities for all the family to explore. We can’t wait to open later this year, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Trafford Palazzo’s community through the doors.”
Archie’s Atomic joins an exciting line up of unique experiences in Trafford Palazzo which NERF Action Xperience, a one-of-its-kind family experience for NERF enthusiasts, and King Pins, a flagship state-of-the-art bowling centre.
