Kids, eh? While we’re worrying about Brexit, paying rent, and who the hell is going to replace Mary Berry on ‘Bake Off’, they’re running around having a whale of a time. But now you can channel your inner five-year-old at a giant underground space-themed ball pit that’s coming to Dalston this week. And we mean giant. BallieBallerson (yes, that’s its actual name) will be set over two floors and decked out with 200,000 plastic balls, foam toys, rubber rings and a DJ booth in the middle of the ballpit.
But not everything was better when you were a kid, which is why they’re adding booze into the mix, with retro-themed cocktails including pink shrimp daiquiris, Skittle sours and, er, Monster Munch martinis. All food is served in ball form, naturally, with everything from chicken kiev balls to ‘Yorkshire balls’ – a beef meatball in a Yorkshire pudding with gravy. But maybe give those a miss until you’re done bouncing. Vomming up gravy in the ball pit is a surefire way to kill everyone’s vibe.
79 Stoke Newington Rd, N16 8AD. November 4–December 31. Find out more and book tickets for BallieBallerson.
