Situated in Shoreditch, the incredibly addictive and ridiculously entertaining Ballie Ballerson comprises a ball pit cocktail bar. Yes, you read that correctly. Ballie Ballerson stands solo as a world-renowned cocktail bar with one million balls inside a chaotic ball pit.
With unique sweetie cocktails, delicious food and incomparable atmosphere, Ballie Ballerson is quite simply the place to be on a magical evening in London. With dozens of intriguing and quirky bars and restaurants all around, Shoreditch is an area very unlike its capital counterparts, and it houses one bar in particular that no one should walk past without entering for at least one drink.
That bar is none other than Ballie Ballerson. Aptly named, the venue includes the main ball pit, with a giant mirror on the ceiling (of course!) and an endless glowing ultraviolet mural splaying itself the walls. This 'adult playground' as many refer to it is the ideal spot for both young and old adults alike, with the former holding onto their youth for as long as they possibly can, and the latter reliving those insanely fun childhood memories of trawling through ball pits.
Moreover, with one million balls, many take the opportunity to simply get lost in their surroundings, with retro 'Dib-Dab' and 'Curly-Wurly' cocktails providing even more of a nostalgic feel to the place. The exclusive VIP ball pit also finds itself looking out onto the busy Shoreditch streets, where memories can be made in seconds.
If VIP isn't your thing, maybe bottomless brunch is, or even your Christmas or New Year needs a little embellishment. Ballie Ballerson does it all. Tickets can be bought online for easy access, with merchandise and vouchers also available. What are you waiting for? Go fill your next weekend with madness and throw it all the way back to happier times!
