Bounce Old Street
This second venue from the ping pong bar Bounce opened its in Old Street in autumn 2015. And these guys aren't messing around. With 17 bespoke tables and a private room, this is a place to get seriously competitive. Expect an east London twist, as luxe furnishings meet urban style and UV lighting. As well as ballgames, there's an open-plan restaurant serving up traditional Italian pizzas along a 25-foot pizza counter, and suave cocktails from the bar, neither of which are likely to improve your game, but will make for a great night out. The original Bounce, which is based in Farringdon, is allegedly located on the very spot that the beautiful, bouncy game was invented.
Venue says: “Bottomless brunch on Sundays from 1-3pm. All the ping pong, prosecco and specialty brunch pizzas you can handle for just £29.50 per person.”
