BallieBallerson 2.0

One million balls, a ball pit waterfall, bottomless brunch with espresso martinis, and a waterproof room for prosecco-spraying  – London’s adult ball-pit has escalated and returned.

BallieBallerson is thrilled to announce it has a brand new home on Curtain Road in Shoreditch.  Opening in early October, fans of the former Dalston site can enjoy a bigger, better Ballie alongside the exciting addition of all day hang out restaurant, Lit.

Ballie has over 100 million video views worldwide, and now London’s world famous ball pit cocktail bar has upgraded and is promising more space, more nostalgic hedonism with unparalleled photo opportunities.
