Ping Pong and Cocktails, Anyone?
Bounce, Old St
Bounce Old Street and Farringdon is a cocktail bar with a twist, that twist being a room filled with ping pong tables. This fun and casual venue lets you hire out a ping pong table for up to 1 hour at a time, giving you the chance to show your competitive spirit as well as sipping on a cocktail or two.
Describing themselves as 'the home of ping pong', these two venues also serve food and drinks daily as a fully functioning restaurant- just mind you don't get hit by a ping pong ball! Prices range from £11 off-peak for a 30-minute session, to £29.50 for a full hour of play time during Peak times (evening/late). Considering 4-6 people usually occupy one table, the cost is little considering you all split the fare. Each venue has approximately 15 ping pong tables and plenty of booths to eat and drink in. The relaxed and playful experience you get at this venue is what makes it so informal and fun to be part of.
