We reopen on 10th February as GlowyMcGlow: an adult play pen set over two floors; the underground club is kitted out with 250k clear balls set upon a 10k LED dancefloor.

Upstairs the bar has glow in the dark murals that are charged with UV light blasts every hour – sending the venue into a 5 minute light rave whilst DJs spin funk and ragged house.

Cocktails are themed around the planets; Neptune is based on charcoal and liquid nitrogen; the helium rich Saturn is garnished with a floating balloon; and Uranus, which is undrinkable until you’ve eaten the Miracle Berry pill provided.

Book your two hour slot to enjoy access to the upstairs bar and as many trips to the ball pit as you like. We also have a VIP for all those ballers who want a table a bottle of prosecco on arrival. Max 6 people per table.

We are at 79 Stoke Newington Road, Dalston, N16 8AD.

The ball pit was really fun, the drinks were really interesting and the staff was overall nice! Would definitely do it again. My only recommendation would be to play music more danceable, rhythmic and modern (felt like we were in the 2000´s, which is not that good.) Zyanya visited BallieBallerson on 05 Mar 2017

Loved it went twice. There's no difference between the cheap £5 entry to the mcglowy £15 entrance. The ball pit is small but youll tired out quick so people tend to alternate from bar to pit. Not too crowded, would recommend Judy visited BallieBallerson on 28 Jan 2017

Bought some tickets for this party and received a message the day after saying I cannot attend the event now because they don't have space for anymore guests. Really bad management. Won't buy tickets from them again. Laura visited BallieBallerson on 01 Nov 2016

We went in the 7-9pm session and it was FAR too busy! We still had lots of fun, but had to keep coming out of the bar pit as it was unbearably hot in there. They let far too many people in and you literally couldn't move in either the ballpit or bar area. If they could just reduce each session by about 15 people it would make such a massive difference and be so much more fun. I'd definitely return it wasn't as busy! The staff were amazing. The bar staff were very happy and lovely (and fantastic at making cocktails!). Sophie visited BallieBallerson on 27 Jan 2017

Extremely disappointed with this trip! I went to the original ball pool and had an amazing time so booked for this event, my experience was the polar opposite. We booked the VIP session which came with a queue jump, table and Prosecco. Upon arrival there was a queue so we spoke to a member of staff and they said we had to queue anyway. The queue and bag search meant we didn't get in until at least 20 minutes into our 2 hour session. The security guard carrying out the bag search was rude and unhelpful! We spoke to the lady on the door and she said she didn't know anything about a queue jump....which is always helpful coming from a member of staff. The manager came to speak to us about the confusion and gave us a bottle of Prosecco on the house as an apology, however when he was informed that two of the group didn't drink Prosecco he offered soft drinks but said he could not swap out Prosecco for cocktails, which I think it utterly ridiculous when it was only one cocktail! The staff on the cloakroom told us the prices, something which is not on the ticket information when booking and bearing in mind it says you have to check things in I think this is something that should be outlined. They did however say we could take our bags in with us. Heading down to the ball pool it was completely packed with no space to move and yet the security guard in the pit kept physically trying to push us further away from the entrance steps, something we would have done ourselves if there was space. There was no need for this manhandling! Having followed the advice of the cloakroom staff we took our bags into the ball pool and when one of my friends lost her bag the staff were completely useless. I am convinced that the number of people in the venue that night was not a safe number for the size of the venue both upstairs and downstairs in the ball pool. The staff were unapproachable, unhelpful and downright rude at times. I was extremely disappointed with this visit and don't think I will be making another trip based on this experience which is a shame as I loved my original trip to ballieballerson.

Loved it! Was so much fun, although it was busy it was such a good atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and we all really enjoyed our time there. I'd recommend wearing clothes you're not too bothered about as the pit can rub off some dust onto you, also it gets quite hot in there. Overall it was a brilliant and fun experience and would recommend Louise visited BallieBallerson on 05 Feb 2017

I had an absolute blast. Great service, great vibes. A really well thought out evening. It's refreshing to see a new concept executed to perfection in a city which is starved for originality. Chris visited BallieBallerson on 07 Feb 2017

Very small, very crowded. I really wanted to like it but my experience was limited to queueing on the narrowest staircase to get into the ball pit, standing inside it for 10 minutes with no room to sit down/move my arms/generally enjoy the balls, and then queueing again to be allowed to leave the pit.

I thought it was going to be fun but it was way better. Ball pit was bigger than expected, everyone in our group thought it was brilliant and was great you could come and go whenever from bar to pit. Cocktails were delicous, The staff were very friendly and fun! Richard visited BallieBallerson on 05 Jan 2017

Great place! Had a really fun time, felt like a kid again! However, it does get really warm and busy, but we just left to go to the bar any time it was really crowded. An absolute hoot! erinxs visited BallieBallerson on 11 Jan 2017

We had a grand time! There are some issues here, it is HOT, seriously hot and at times the ball pit was overcrowded so we couldn't enjoy it the way it is intended to however, this was only for around 10 mins and we took break at this point. From the two hours we were in the ball for the first 30mins and the last 45, we had a cocktail or two in between which helped with the heat. The venue is super small and has no sign so keep your eyes peeled and do not walk past! The cost isn't too pricey in line with how much it costs to take a kid to a ball pit! They played music throughout which was good, made it more enjoyable. Worthwhile if you are willing to get right in there!!!! Roice visited BallieBallerson on 29 Dec 2016

Bit of an awkward location and extremely loud music. Think the experience was overrated for the cost, because after five minutes being in a ball pit isn't that fun anymore Eleanor visited BallieBallerson on 14 Dec 2016

The location was very convenient though I didn't think it was worth £15 each to go in. We found it hard to keep our footing when in the ball pit and only stayed for about 15 minutes. There are plenty more fun events in london I would spend my £15 on. Pamela visited BallieBallerson on 26 Jan 2017

It's a very small venue and £15 is a bit expensive for just the entry, but... once you're in it's a lot of fun! It's lucky we wore trainers, jeans and sleevless tops. We were scared to take our phones in the pit at first but everyone was doing it so we risked it and it was fine (luckily!). Very friendly staff which is rare to find in London these days (Dirty Martini Bishopsgate best example for worst staff with the worst attitude)... so I hope Ballie doesnt lose this quality. Oh and really tasty cocktails here. Puja visited BallieBallerson on 26 Jan 2017

Night Owl tickets are a blessing! My first experience at BallieBallerson was great, would definitely come back for a fun night. Although I do have to say, it's better to NOT have any loose items on you, as you can imagine it is pretty easy to drop something at the bottom of the ball pit. Leave your stuff at the cloakroom and enjoy your stay Viktorija visited BallieBallerson on 28 Jan 2017

The ball pit was smaller than I expected and it was extremely hot downstairs. Overall I had a great time and the drinks were good! I do think it was a little overpriced for the small space and the amount of people they let in but it is definitely something worth doing if you are looking for a not so mainstream London experience.

The ball pit is too small for the amount of people they let in. Also couldn't help but think just how clean the ball pit must of been. £15 is too expensive for entry into a small pop up in Dalston. Rebekah visited BallieBallerson on 27 Jan 2017

Hi, I bought these tickets as a gift for my niece and a friend for her birthday. She was over the moon as she had seen the ad and wanted to do it!!! I was pleased I had got her something she wanted. Her and her friend had a brilliant time, they loved every minute of it. Thanks Suzan visited BallieBallerson on 27 Nov 2016

Saw this place featured on Facebook months before arriving in London. I went with 4 other friends and many of the reviews said that they got bored from the ball pit after about 10 min. We spent the entire 2 hours in the ball pit except for a short bathroom break. The drinks were on the more expensive side, but it was expected. Also, finding the location was a bit sketch because we didn't see a sign for the place just a bunch of balls in a bag hanging from above. Overall, it was a lot of fun and exactly the kind of experience we thought it was going to be. Also, don't forget to wear comfy clothes and nothing too heavy because it is very hot in the ball pit.

Our first 10 minutes were great. There weren't too many people in there, so we were free to jump around and throw ourselves into the ball pit as much as we wanted. Unfortunately, it soon got incredibly crowded and became a highly unpleasant experience. It actually felt dangerous to sit down in the pit in case someone landed on you, and people were pelting everyone else with balls. Two friends got hit in the eye with balls thrown incredibly hard - and it would have happened more frequently except that the back of my head shielded them from the rest. Overall, way too many people in way too small a space, and with very little behavior control. We only spent 50 minutes in there so felt ripped off for the amount we spent. Unfortunately it was awful enough that we didn't want to stay any longer. Also very cheeky to have to pay for cloakroom on top of £15 for a tiny basement ball pit! Interesting idea and had the potential to be really fun, so we were very disappointed. Francine visited BallieBallerson on 16 Jan 2017

Arrived for Top of the Pops night and met a load of other attendees - good music and strangers all very friendly and chatty. The inside was small but gave the place a good atmosphere and the ball pit, although a little crowded at the start of the session was a great laugh, with everyone in the room playing and having a good time together. The drinks we're impressive and quirky, although prepare to part with £8-10 for each. This might be expensive, but we knew this in advance and had set a few quid aside to try a few different ones between us. All over I had a fantastic night, but I will say this - they should maybe reduce the number of people in the venue at peak times, to help patrons and bar staff alike. Will go back when I come back to London at the end of the year, interested to see GlowyMcGlow! Kerry visited BallieBallerson on 10 Dec 2016

Disappointed in the size of the ball pit, was advertised a lot bigger. The place itself was also too small to allow for the amount of people they had inside. The cocktails were interesting but not worth the £10 each for so little to drink. Overall an interesting experience but did not meet expectations at all. Keryn visited BallieBallerson on 26 Jan 2017

Think it's safe to say pictures honestly do this place justice. Unfortunately Ballie Ballerson did not meet our expectations, yes it's a unique and fun idea...but after paying £15 just for entry and then paying £9 for a cocktail and £3 cloakroom this really dampened our mood. The venue was a lot smaller than expected, after we walked into the really narrow, shabby bar we went downstairs expecting maybe another bar or some more seating but there was literally a fenced off area with balls and a pop up clockroom. The ball pit as a whole was really small, by 8pm it was rammed so you couldn't move around or play in the ball pit. The que for the cloakroom was really long too, especially for a Wednesday and as the venue is so small was hard to have your own space.

It was a great experience although VERY crowded and having people chuck balls in your face very hard isn't exactly the best...the cocktails were alright but really sweet. I'd do it once but probably never again. Venisse visited BallieBallerson on 10 Jan 2017

It was great experience, had so much laughed with friends! I brought 15 of us and it was very good memories for us all when we got out. Only thing to recommend is not hold your phone in softball because I dropped my but my friend found it before the area got crowd! And the room are small make it so more sweat and you guarantee get lots of calories out in the end of night. Had so much fun! Will definitely coming back soon.

Was a bit overcrowded as a it's a small bar area and the pit itself is fairly small. I think they need to ensure less people are in the pit at one time as turned into a bit of a mosh pit and it's quite deep if you're a short girl!! Cocktails were nice and music really good, but not sure it's worth the £15 unless you love the novelty factor. avocet89 visited BallieBallerson on 29 Dec 2016

Fab idea, having an adult ball pit in a bar!. Yummy cocktails. It would have been even better if there was a mix of music and the sessions were better managed, so it was not too crowded in the pit. Neelam visited BallieBallerson on 22 Nov 2016

Would NOT recommend. Over priced and massively overrated. Dark, dingy, music too loud and the venue is very small and over crowded. Limited space in the ball pit to force people into the bar upstairs in order to buy drinks. Charges for coat check which was never mentioned. Building nondescript so easy to walk past. I have no intention of returning and left after 30 minutes. Waste of time and money. Noreen visited BallieBallerson on 18 Dec 2016

Was really looking forward to this and the ball pit is fun but way too crowded. I would not reccommend going on a Saturday night. It was so overcrowded to the point I was told I couldn't get in to begin with!! Had to pay for cloakroom even though I'd already paid £16.50 plus the cocktails were overpriced barely any drink just ice, the place is tiny! Shame as had the potential to be really good.

Absolutely balls! By this I mean - pants! :( For a hefty £15, guests are shown into a tiny dark dingey bar with a large ball pit in their basement. It's pervishly dark and the music is way too loud, and unnecessarily so, almost as if it's designed that way, to force people to go upstairs to purchase drinks. There is a charge for checking in coats and bags, which is deliberately referred to as simply "Check-in" without mentioning these additional cloakroom charges. Overall, a fiendishly clever idea for making a quick buck, but with a total lack of integrity and care for customers, it's a poor show. I'm an intuitive healer so I could also read the lack of actual fun on the faces of other guests too. Sad. In future, I'd suggest free cloakroom and disco lighting and retro music, as advertised, instead of trance edm sounds. Nisha visited BallieBallerson on 20 Jan 2017

We had a great time! Cocktails were amazing, not super cheap but delicious and with a twist. The music was awesome and the ball pool was hilarious. Not very big but more than enough room to dive and dip! We played for 1.5 hrs and were exhausted :). The style is grungy chic. Enjoy! Muriel visited BallieBallerson on 28 Dec 2016

It was a fantastic experience, cannot give 5* as the ball pit was too small. Whilst I was happy with the entry fee, the cloakroom was additional (and expensive if you wanted to put a bag in £2!!) and the cocktails were SO expensive. Fab experience, would recommend but not if your looking for value for money. Tara visited BallieBallerson on 21 Dec 2016

We paid £16.50 each to enter for 2 hours. We expected a lot more. The pit is really small, very crowded. It is fun but it needs to be bigger or less tickets sold for the time slots. I thought it was a bit much that they charge extra for the mandatory coat (£1) and bag (£2) check when they already charge a lot to enter the bar and pit. Don't even get me started on the price of the cocktails....£10 for a TINY drink. Geraldine visited BallieBallerson on 06 Jan 2017
