Jam Park, the new "multi-sensory adult playground" in Swords from Bodytonic, will open to the public next Friday, the 24th May, but a series of soft opening events have already started. In what was formerly the Wright Venue, Jam Park will host weekly rooftop terrace parties, a Sunday market, movie and sports screenings, and bottomless brunch.
The building has three levels and seven spaces, and gaming will be a running theme, with a "Tokyo-style arcade", disco crazy golf and ping pong, as well as shuffle board and "escape rooms" - we're still waiting on an explanation for that one. The first floor will host concerts, comedy, parties and exhibitions, with a capacity of 1200, three bars and an outdoor terrace.
Food will be available at "Eatery Park" on the rooftop, with street food on the lower two levels in a similar style to Eatyard, Bodytonic's outdoor food market at the side of The Bernard Shaw. You can check out all of the food and drink options here. Pre-opening soft events include Bingo Loco - "Ireland's only bingo rave", a screening of the season finale of Game of Thrones, and a Spice Girls bottomless brunch, with bookings now open on the site.
It's fair to say that North County Dublin has seen nothing like this before, and we'd say it's set to be the social hub of the summer for all of those people who can't face the Swords Express to get into town. Jam Park opens on Friday 24th May at 11:00, and pre-opening events are on now.
