Great concept to have an adults-only ball pit in a night club, but even at 4pm on a Friday afternoon it was just a bit too busy. You were only permitted access to the ball pit for an hour along with loads of other people all vying for space in the small pit. That was the downside, but it was rather entertaining once you were in.

This place is very cool and even if we went there in the 4pm-5pm slot it was full of costumers! The only thing is that everyone can get into the ball area with their shoes on, so it's quite dirty
Anyway we had a lot of fun, but 1 hour is enough

Extremely fun and you're sure to have a lot of laughs.
However the ball pit itself is very small and can get very crowded. It doesn't seem very hygienic either some weird black things floating around amongst the balls.
There were a group of boys who were throwing balls about and excessively jumping around without care for people near them and the bouncer just stood there not doing anything about it.

Drinks are expensive and there is no where to sit if you're not part of a VIP table.

Music is ok. Didn't try any food there.

The music is awful. There is NO seating available unless you are "VIP". The ballpit is filthy, tiny and so overcrowded. There was a group of guys aggressively throwing balls at faces and the bouncer did nothing about it.
There is a young barman that is rude and clearly hates his job. He couldn't take being told the truth so like a little girl he got the bouncer and got him kicked out.
Would never go here again if you paid me. What a waste of £100!!!

I visited this place this time last year when it was in the old venue and I wrote a review with ONE rating, this time a FIVE. Four of us went on a Saturday 2pm-4pm VIP bottomless brunch , yes it was expensive at nearly £50 each but we had such a great time. I wouldn't have enjoyed it much if we didn't book VIP so I'm really glad we did. We sat down and the blonde waitress (sorry didn't know her name) was great! she topped up our drinks and brought us over pizza continuously when we ran out. the ball pit in the VIP area was small but it was still so so good and never packed as people were also chatting/eating/drinking out of the ball pits. the main ball pit was so packed we didn't go in, then suddenly around 3.15pm everyone on the ground (not VIP) left... we weren't sure why but then the VIP area had the bigger ball pit to go in. it was really fun honestly. had a great time - would recommend for a small group in VIP, not sure about a bigger group.
