As Ed has proved on Strictly Come Dancing, everyone likes Balls.
This perhaps explains the popping up of BallieBallerson, a ‘pop-up ball pit bar’ in where-else-but-Dalston. Yep, grown adults are flocking to a giant ball pit to frolic in some 200,000 balls.
We can’t decide if this is more or less childish than the restaurant upstairs, which serves only meatballs, cheese balls and (it’s almost like they were struggling here) ‘pancake balls’.
If you’re mad about balls, you’ve got until the end of the year to dive in.
