Bounce Review

Book a table at Bounce

Top 10 things you need to know about Bounce:

1) Ever pondered the mayhem of East London on a Saturday night and thought, “The streets here are dead. I need a sprawling subterranean hideout filled with heightened chaos and beautiful people fidgeting, flailing, and frolicking”? Then have we found a basement bar in Shoreditch for you!

2) Sweet-nothing romantic dates, subdued bestie catch-ups, quiet dinners with mum and dad; this isn’t the bar for that kind of behaviour. If you’re not comfortable with shouted (not spoken) conversations, then take it somewhere else, sunshine!

3) All the elements of fun - colour, smell, laughter, music, booziness, style, sex, gameplay, dimmed lights, a sated belly - can been seen on every surface and every gleaming smile.

4) Ping pong balls fly in all directions, fluorescent graffiti glows, cheers ring out when the glow-in-the-dark lighting comes on periodically, waiting staff bounce between table tennis tables joyfully taking and delivering orders. This is more a club than a restaurant bar. There’s a tangible feeling that boogying could break out at any minute, especially using groovy, hip-loosening music from The Jackson 5, Naughty By Nature, Blackstreet, and the Justins (Timberlake and Bieber).

5) It’s amazing how half an hour of active wiff-waff can warm your cockles. The rules? No running, no ducking, no diving in the shallow end. Heavy petting is actively encouraged though.

6) That’s because everyone here has just stepped out of the salon. Hot girls in high heels and dresses (the most sensible attire for ping pong, naturally) coquettishly make daring shots that keep the hunky, spunky, casually dressed guys on their toes. No skill required, evidently.

7) Other reasons for these flirtatious goings on? The palace of gins, a bible of cocktails, a serried regiment of pale ales, blonde beers, wheat beers, craft beers, porters, stouts and inventively-named IPAs such as Yeastie Boys Earl Grey and Big Hug.

8) The restaurant’s menu is a roll call of posh words, healthy ingredients, sharing bites and eponymous gut-busting pizzas. The perfectly-sized caviar-gravadlax starter, and the seabass with salubrious samphire bathing in lobster bisque, are elegant, albeit steep, methods to avoid greed.

9) Bounce is therefore a place sustenance, retreat, and unabashed abandon. Groups gathers before tinkling off to a actual Shoreditch club at 1am closing.

10) This younger, louder sibling of Bounce Holborn is pandemonium at it’s best. Undeniably, more fun than chucking heavy balls down the All Star Lanes.
