Remember those carefree days of childhood, when your only worries in life were the odd bit of homework and finding those last few stickers or Pokémon cards to complete your collection? No relationship woes, no bills to pay, and no job grinding you down; if only adulthood was quite so simple…
This summer, Shooters Bar have teamed up with Ball Mania to invite you on a nostalgia-fuelled trip down memory lane, back to a time when life was more innocent. Launching on Tuesday 17th July, the first-floor bar will be taken over with a gigantic, bespoke adults only 80sqm ball pool, containing over ½ million balls ready for you to dive in for a spot of all-immersive fun. Are you ready to unleash your inner-child?
Boasting lights, party tunes and a custom-built selfie area for those perfect Instagram moments, Ball Mania is set to be the perfect World Cup hangover cure, and a welcome retreat after a hard day at work.
And, in true Shooters fashion, there will be an attractive range of hospitality packages to suit everyone from couples, to corporate gatherings and birthday parties. Packages start at just £10pp, and go up to £20pp, which includes a 90-minute session in the ball pool, 2 cans of Rekorderlig or Heineken, and the legendary Shooters Fully Loaded Burger with French fries and all the trimmings.
The pit will be open Sunday-Thursday 12pm until midnight (last session 10pm), and Friday – Saturday 12pm until 2am (last entry 11:55pm).
Shooters General Manager Greg Smith said:
‘’We like to think that Shooters has always been more than just another sports bar, and always try to push the envelope when it comes to offering our customers something out of the ordinary. In the past, we’ve enjoyed success with a variety of pop-ups such as the ice-bar, but we reckon Ball Mania is going to take city centre entertainment to the next level.
‘’Nothing cures a stressful day better than a few drinks and nostalgic dose of fun, and Ball Mania is the perfect remedy for anyone wanting to let their hair down. With live sport and great food and drink packages available, it’s an opportunity to do something different without breaking the bank. We’ll see you in the pit!’’
