Ballie Ballerson: 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 UV murals that are charged with UV making an epic backdrop for dancing, partying and out of this world selfies – all 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 package for all those ballers who want a table and bottle of prosecco on arrival. Max 6 people per table.

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

The ball pit was well managed to stop people getting lost in balls, i had alot of fun with my friends! visited BallieBallerson on 26 Aug 2017

It was so much fun. The bar is quite small which was annoying at the staff are so friendly and keep the energy levels up. The ball pit was awesome. A change of music genre would have been good, not everyone loves house. All in all so much fun and think they should get a bigger permanent venue I'd be a regular and so many of my friends are jealous I got to go. visited BallieBallerson on 25 Aug 2017

Fun for 10minutes For the novelty & laugh but that's it. This place is nothing like the photos- it's but tiny and quite a dirty old building. Only worth going when getting cheap offer. Glad I went but won't return. Claire visited BallieBallerson on 18 Aug 2017

We loved it! It was the perfect venue for my mate's 30th birthday. We had the 7-9pm slot and had a blast. Drinks are on the pricey side, but the cost is standard London prices (same as the rest of the bars in that area). By 9pm it started getting too crowded, busy and hectic in the ball pit, so we were pleased we opted for an earlier slot. Alison visited BallieBallerson on 12 Aug 2017

Had a really enjoyable night at times it was really busy. Maybe they should restrict the amount of people in there at one time as it was much more enjoyable with less people. Definitely worth going to. Emma visited BallieBallerson on 04 Aug 2017

Loved Ballie Ballerson - all I would say is that they could get away with charging a slightly higher entry price if it meant there were less people in there at once. Killed my relaxing buzz slightly when I was floating on a sea and balls, minding my own business when I was nearly kicked in the face by a fellow baller. Oh, and my advice - DON'T WEAR JEWELLERY - guy spent a good 30 minutes searching for his wedding ring (and didn't find it) Lisa visited BallieBallerson on 29 Jul 2017

Absolutely appalling. This was a complete dive. A total rip off. I had boought the tickets as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday but we left within 2 minutes. The photos falsely depict this venue as something worth spending money on. Don't do it. Alice visited BallieBallerson on 13 Jul 2017

Ball pit is better than I expected. The depth of the pit is probs like 1 meter. It's not too small and we never had to queue to go in ( my booking was on a Friday 8pm onwards). Also note, although you have a two hour slot, they don't kick you out. Staff are super friendly and just want to get you fcked up. It's a good time. visited BallieBallerson on 19 May 2017

What a shitty event! Super expensive for one small room full of balls which is packed with people so it is rather dangerous than fun to jump around. Cocktails were basically a mix of sugar - never again, too bad :/ Johanna visited BallieBallerson on 19 May 2017

Hilarious. It was a surprise for my girlfriend... and she was surprised! Really good fun and party atmosphere. Only buts were the size of the venue, it was small so got awfully cramped by the bar areas and downstairs lighting wasn't very good (comparing it to the photos I saw previously).

Was very dissappointed it's literally just 1 small ballpit in a tiny bar so really didn't feel it was value for money. The photos make it look so much bigger & better!

Cannot recommend this enough. I went to this with my friends for a birthday brunch and from the moment we went in the whole place was full of life - the drinks were poured and the staff got everyone involved in the fun straight away. The actual ball pit was smaller than I thought but this is a small a venue so there was not too many people there anyway. The only downfall was at the end - when someone sprayed a whole bottle of prosecco over everyone in the room and the staff made no attempt to stop him - it cut my night short. other than that - fantastic.

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 23 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 10 Feb 2017

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 18 Feb 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 11 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.

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 28 Jan 2017

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 28 Jan 2017

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 28 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 27 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.

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 26 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 26 Jan 2017

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 21 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 20 Jan 2017

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 21 Jan 2017

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

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.

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 14 Jan 2017

Great concept however requires a lot of work. Entrance to the event is £15 which is way too high for what the venue looks like. Cocktails albeit unique were over priced for what they were. I had a Wham Bam which was mainly a glass of shaved ice of which my friends asked if "I wanted a drink with my glass of ice". The safety of the ball pit also needs some addressing. I hit my back on a perturbing screw in the wood. If this was someone's head it could result in legal matters of which are a concern. Our group had a good time however, I wouldn't go back sadly. chownrebecca23 visited BallieBallerson on 13 Jan 2017

I haven't laughed this much in ages. Was lots of fun HOWEVER it's far too small and they have more people in there than what they advertised on their website. The pit is at the end of the tiny bar through the tightest corridor ever and down an uneven low ceiling staircase. There's a coat/bag check down there which should be included in the £16.50 price tag (including DMN booking fee) and the pit. Be prepared to be hot and sweaty. You can smell the heat from the stairs but that doesn't stop you getting in and enjoying it. I must say the DJ makes the night as I think if we didn't enjoy the music we wouldn't have enjoyed it as much as it does get tiring and the novelty wears off super quick. Overall, over priced fun definitely not worth the price. bianca visited BallieBallerson on 13 Jan 2017

When I first saw the ball pit I was a little underwhelmed however once we got in it was a lot of fun! It gets very hot and I'd advise you to go towards the back of the pit as the "ball bouncer man" seems to take great pleasure in trying to keep the balls in and throwing them around forcefully. The music is good. Expect ball fights. Zoe visited BallieBallerson on 13 Jan 2017

Place looks like student bar. Made with uncovered wood. Once it gets busy, moving is hardly possible: walk ways a very narrow and cloakroom is on the way to get for a people to get in and out of ball pit. For £15 entry you expect a little more space. Fee for cloakroom £1 and bag £2 is too much when you have no choice. Drinks are expensive. We took beer and weren't offered a glass. In general impression in not great. There are no more then 5 000 of balls for sure (maybe even less). We spent there 30 mins and left. Description gives a little different impression. Upset and money waisted.

Wasn't really what I was expecting, ballpit was downstairs in a venue reminiscent of a grotty student house. The basement where the ballpit is housed is so hot and the ballpit itself really deep, so hard to get yourself up without help when you go under. Got charged £1 for my coat and £2 for my bag to be put away and drinks are expensive, go somewhere else beforehand. If you wanna feel like a kid again, go along with some friends for a couple of hours, make sure you help each other when someone goes under! laura visited BallieBallerson on 13 Jan 2017

- I really enjoyed the ball pit! In the first ten minutes I was there it was like 'ok, what do we do, this looks like it may be quite boring to do for two hours.' But we ended up getting into ball throwing fights with random people, pushing each other in, trying to juggle the balls, making a ball tornado - it was great! - DO keep an eye on each other - it's sometimes difficult to get back up if you sit down in the pit, you may need to pull each other out! Having your legs behind you rather than in front may be a good idea. Also if you need more support keep your back to a wall. Be careful of stepping on other people or other people stepping on you - Their coat/bag check charges £1 for each coat and £2 for each bag, which is really annoying. Some people ended up bringing their bags and coats into the ball pit, but honestly that's really troublesome so it might be best to just not bring a bag or pack all the coats into one big bag or something. - It's quite a workout and the room is quite warm, so don't wear too much going into the pit - It's really dark in there so bring a phone with good night picture capabilities if you want to take good photos! - They didn't make us take off our shoes, so I think that's rather unhygienic. - No outside liquids allowed on the premises, so we had to pour out our water bottles before going in - Wasn't particularly keen on their drinks/food, but they're close to some fantastic restaurants so that's pretty awesome!

We went with a group of 14 adults 30 somethings to celebrate a birthday. The venue is quite small however big enough. We bought the £15 entry tickets, would not bother with VIP as there is no queues and the area is too small. The ball pit is a free for all and was so much fun! Do wear flat shoes and wear something light as it does get hot and sweaty. Be prepared for ball fight not for the faint hearted. All in all great fun and a unique experience.

Decided to celebrate my birthday here and glad I did. Getting in was a bit of a mare as the place is tiny so was stressful manouvering as they weren't very active at kicking out those who's time was up and the security inside got pissy with us even though we couldn't move. Although slightly scary at first cos I'm small it was such ridiculous fun in the pit. We all had the best night. The girl on the door was an absolute babe and helped me out when two of my guests were late but I had their tickets. It's nice to have such friendly staff. The barman who served me each time was super nice too. Drinks are overpriced but what's new in London? The wham cocktail was mostly ice but the bubblegum and cherry ones were lush. The music was also really good, mix of being taken back to my early 00s teens and also really good techno/house which was a nice surprise. The security at front of house also need an attitude check, I had tickets for 14 of my 17 friends and wanted to ensure the right people got in with my tickets and the guy gave me sh!t for it. Overall great place to celebrate. annablack visited BallieBallerson on 07 Jan 2017

My girlfriend and I were in London for the weekend and wanted to do something unique. If you're looking for a great date night activity, definitely come here! The drinks were unique in that they were all based on candy and the ball pit was a ton of fun. We all were throwing balls at each other the entire time or just diving right into the pit. At times we were told to stop throwing balls, but that's only when they really see someone winding up with them and trying to hurt others. Overall, definitely do this if you're into trying new things! Tim visited BallieBallerson on 07 Jan 2017

Had a great night for my birthday! Great fun! Really nice cocktails too! Only thing I didn't like was one of the bar staff deciding to, when everyone is throwing balls around (coz it's an alcohol fueled adult ballpit), tell me and my mate (and not anyone else) to stop throwing balls... Er, what??!! So we just threw loads of balls at him! He was a dick, but the rest of the night was great! Dave visited BallieBallerson on 07 Jan 2017

Took a friend for a surprise birthday. We booked the vip table as there were no normal entry tickets left. £30pp for entry, table and a bottle of prosecco wasn't too bad considering normal London prices. The club itself is pretty small and not the most glam place, however the drinking menu is amazing and the ball pit itself is a lot of fun!! I would go back again just for the ball pit, however I don't think I'd bother with the table again. Make sure you put all your belongings in the cloakroom, inc handbag and phone ect as you'll probably loose it. Emily visited BallieBallerson on 07 Jan 2017

Drinks at the bar are individual and great! Especially the ones that are designed around retro sweets. Ball pit looks a bit underwhelming when you go downstairs, but once you get in it's actually quite fun. Although you have to pay for the cloakroom which I think is a bit cheeky considering the £15 entrance fee. Go with a group of friends and it will be more fun!

Put your phone and keys in cloakroom, some girl lost her phone and about 5 of us spent a while looking for it, which was a bit of a pain. I had a great time!

For 2 hours entry it really is worth the experience! Had an amazing night there, but be warned, the plastic balls looks innocent but it's easy to sink in them and when it hits your head, it will hurt! The music was themed back to the 90's. funny that the DJ played some ghostbusters song. Great service, and super creative concept for drinks. Ordered Ginger Nut, the bartender's favourite; can never go wrong with a bartender's fav ;) Place was slightly smaller than expected, but you should not underestimate that sea of balls!

It's was definitely a random experience. Firstly the cloakroom should be included in the price at £2 a bag and £1 a jacket if there is a few of you it gets expensive. The ball pit downstairs is fairly small and that's all there is to play with and your not allowed to bring your drinks downstairs either so you have to choose to drink upstairs or stand downstairs in the balls.

A venue which is a lot smaller than expected, very small bar area, over priced drinks. Music in the ball pit was commercial pop...not much variety. And throughout the night there was a horrendous smell of vomit which was topped off with the fried food they serve there.

Three of us attended, one hated the place due to over crowding and the ballpit getting boytress. My other friend and I enjoyed ourselves, although we just got stuck in and acted like children for an hour. drinks look amazing (although, I didn't try them). Wear clothes with zipped pockets for phone, car keys, money. as you have to put all bags and coats in the cloak room ( we left all our stuff in the car). There is free parking after 7pm. It is essentially just a average size ballpit. I was expecting more such as; slides, inflatables swing things etc. But it was just balls. After 2 hours, the novelty wears off and your ready to move on.

It's a nice idea but the place was WAY too small and overcrowded to have any fun. The ballbit was so packed that you spent more time trying to keep standing, and not fall over and get trampled on, than having fun. Maybe it's better to book an earlier slot not around Christmas time so it's less busy? If it wasn't so crowded and dangerous it could have been a real laugh. Drinks were very expensive but they were delicious and fun - just a shame we had to drink them in a crowded corridor as there were no seats or tables available.

Amazing. Ball pits were never this deep as a kid, though I always wanted them to be! Really funny when you get stuck underneath the balls, and throwing balls at strangers is a bonding process. Personally, I found the lack of health and safety refreshing though be prepared to be stood on! Also, watch out for the cloakroom queue, I'd recommend leaving before the end of your slot. Cocktails were imaginative and all but the After Eight were really nice. Endorphins and good clean fun. Haven't laughed so much in ages. Will be going again.
