My friend Josh is one of the first to turn 21 and we decided to organise a surprise meet up for him.
We all agreed on Bounce Bar in Shoreditch. Like most places in Shoreditch the bar is slightly bizarre following a trendy, unusual concept surrounding the beloved game ‘ping-pong’.
You enter the bar which sports a modern Avent Garde decor. I have to admit that on entry I didn’t feel quite quirky enough to be there. However, once we entered the main part of the bar I felt much more at home as it just felt like a regular sports bar.
It was a really fun and enjoyable concept. However, there were a few things that I felt could have been improved. Firstly, although playing ping pong is a social concept the music was as loud as it is in a club making it quite hard to chat… Especially in a large group.
Also, the drinks were really quite pricey! I am used to London prices but I guess the trendier the venue the higher premium you pay! They also had a minimum card spend of £10 which again encourages you to spend more! However, I think the bar is intended to be for one off occasions and you don’t mind paying the prices in those instances!
I would definitely recommend to a friend as it really is different and good fun!
