Sometimes they’re called smash rooms and sometimes they’re called rage rooms. Rochester’s will be known as The Mess Hall and it will be open soon. If you’re aren’t familiar, these businesses are places to go to… smash things.

It’s a great place to go to blow off some steam while breaking things, but smash rooms are not just an outlet for anger issues - A lot of people go just to get messy and have fun. I recently spoke to the owner to find out when The Mess Hall in Rochester is going to open and what people can expect when they buy a ticket.
