Boasting 17 ping-pong tables as well as a raised restaurant that can seat 95 people to watch over your prowess (no pressure) from a safe viewing platform, Bounce is as much a social-sports-night-club as it is cocktail bar and dining venue. 

For those times when you can’t quite decide what to do, but you know sitting in a bar with some friends having a few drinks isn’t going to cut it, Bounce ping-pong bar might just make your night. Boasting 17 ping-pong tables - and one official Olympic one - as well as a raised restaurant that can seat 95 people to watch over your prowess (no pressure) from a safe viewing platform, Bounce is as much a social-sports-night-club as it is cocktail bar and dining venue. 

As Europe’s first and largest social ping pong club, Bounce was created by the founder of All Star Lanes, Dov Penzik and acclaimed British designer Russell Sage (The Shard, The Savoy…) so it’s as good to look at as it is fun to while away the time and calories in. Speaking of which, the food on offer includes whole roasted chickens, athlete-worthy meat stews and pizzas served bubbling hot from the purpose-built, 7 foot-wide wood-burning oven. You can also order sharing plates, smaller bite-sized antipasti and even a kids’ meal for the giant children among you. 

Bounce likes to repeat the story that it has been constructed on the very spot where the game of ‘Wiff-Waff’ - as London’s own Boris Johnson claims it was originally known - was invented in 1901. Wiff-Waff is further referenced on the extensive and creative cocktail menu (Hendrick’s gin, homemade Earl Grey tea syrup, fresh lemon, cucumber, topped with tonic) alongside an inspired wine, craft beer, local cider and straight premium spirit list all served at the eye-catching 40ft arc bar. There is also a private room for hire, which comes with a cocktail bar, specially commissioned ping-pong tables and even your own DJ booth (the usual public tables clock in at £26 per hour at peak times, £18 off-peak).
