Remember the giant adult ball pit in Dalston that turned into a giant glow-in-the-dark adult ball pit in Shoreditch?
Well, the brains behind the ball pit have found a way to recycle the original balls, instead of just neglecting them and demoting them to an old Stoke Newington storage unit. They’ve only gone and opened a slightly smaller but slightly deeper adult ball pit in Shoreditch. So now, whether you’re in Dalston or Shoreditch, you’re never too far away from a sea of balls.
Aptly named Box Balls, BallieBallerson’s new pit at Boxpark is their deepest yet. For 30 minutes of nostalgia and pure unadulterated fun (trust us, that’s all the time you need), get yourself a ticket and prepare for the most big kid activity that London has to offer. (Don’t fret, there’ll also be some crazy DJ sets and plenty of booze available from the upstairs bar to make you feel at least a little bit grown up).
On Mondays, Box Balls is totally free for anyone living within the M25 (you’ll have to prove it, mind). But if Monday Funday ain’t your style, get yourself a ticket from Fever for a fiver.
Head over to Fever to get yourself a ticket to Box Balls. And don’t forget that you can still visit the glowing balls in Dalston and pair your ball pit fun with bottomless meatballs and prosecco.
Boxpark Shoreditch has recently undergone a big ole’ revamp so, as well as Box Balls, they’ve also got a fancy new terrace for the summer and some exciting new traders. You’ll now find What the Pitta serving up vegan döners (yes, they’re a real and edible thing), Les Deux Amies dishing out buckwheat pancakes, and various other great foodies and retailers.
