Greg Lumley, centre director at Drake Circus, said: “There’s been a lot of anticipation for the opening of Drake Circus The Barcode, and I’m so pleased to be able to announce official dates for our first wave of openings. “There’s huge excitement around the brands and attractions we already have on board, and we’re looking forward to bringing in more great additions in the coming months”.

Councillor Tudor Evans OBE, Leader of Plymouth City Council, said: "Drake Circus The Barcode promises to be a fantastic addition to Plymouth's already vibrant leisure offering and we're all looking forward to its opening day. "Our decision to release Bretonside for this amazing facility is entirely vindicated. Plymouth people will love it."

Drake Circus The Barcode will span more than 100,000 sq ft with more than 400 new car parking spaces, and is set to become a major visitor attraction in Plymouth.

Its name is inspired by the ‘barcode’ nickname given to it by local residents thanks to its striking monochrome stripe design.



Six new leisure and restaurant attractions will officially open their doors this October.

The following attractions are now open:



Zizzi Italian Restaurant serves tasty, Italian style food with a twist! Have your choice of pizza, pasta, risotto or salad followed by one of their indulgent desserts – all in a uniquely designed restaurant.

South African cuisine, famous for its delicious heat of flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken, Nando's offers something for everyone – from the extra mild to the all-out-wild. Whether you’re enjoying a family feast, a quick bite, or grabbing a take-away, each visit comes with loads of their famous vibe and legendary flavour.



Five Guys

American burger bar Five Guys is how burgers and fries are meant to be. High-quality grain-fed beef, hand-cut fries and as many topping combinations as you like. And that’s before you get to create your own mix-and-match shakes. It’s easy to see why these guys have built a cult-like following since arriving in the UK.

The new Cineworld cinema features 14 state-of-the-art screens including IMAX, the world’s most immersive cinema experience and 4DX, Cineworld’s most exhilarating way to watch a film. The cinema will also be home to a Starbucks, and Baskin Robbins counter.

Cosy Club

Cosy Clubs celebrate the joys of relaxed dining, drinking and lounging in a fabulous, welcoming setting: think aristocratic abundance with a dash of local village cricket pavilion pottiness. Magnificent menus veer happily from brunches and light salads to comfort food classics, from fine coffees and smoothies to some of the finest cocktails known to man and woman.
