Vita Group has signed a deal with HIT to bring a new leisure and restaurant concept to Circle Square. A speciality ping pong bar, HIT also promises to make a name for itself by serving up top quality drinks and pizza alongside its games offering.

Expected to open at the end of summer, HIT takes a large 4,500 sqft space at Circle Square situated under Vita Living’s East tower. The venue aims to take advantage of Circle Square’s vibrant community, attracting young professionals, students and corporate parties from around the neighbourhood, thanks to its affordable, fun atmosphere.

Taking a 10-year lease, HIT is expected to create 10 jobs for Manchester thanks to a mix of full-time and part-time roles.

Juan Pascumal, HIT spokesperson said: “It’s fantastic to close the deal with Vita Group and start work on our new concept HIT. Circle Square offers an incredible platform to launch the brand – thousands of students and young professionals are living on-site, it’s surrounded by fantastic offices welcoming a large workforce and adjoins one of the highest footfall roads in the city – Oxford Road. We can’t wait to serve up this brilliant new concept to the city, and share more of our ideas closer to opening.”

Chief Operating Officer of Vita Group, Max Bielby said: “Circle Square has become a thriving hub for retail and leisure in the heart of Manchester. Signing HIT will build on this fantastic community as they join the already immensely popular businesses North Bar, Hello Oriental and Canvas.”
