Opening date announced for bar with ball pits for adults in Croydon town centre
Ping pong and pool tables will also be available at FunHouse on Croydon High Street.
Excitement has been building since the announcement a new bar with two adult-sized ball pits was coming to Croydon and now the opening date has been confirmed.
When we revealed what the new High Street venue will offer it got a huge reaction.
FunHouse announced in October it will bring pool tables, a ping pong table, two bars and two ball pits filled with 200,000 balls to the heart of Croydon.
Captivating UV colours and large eye-catching props will complete a distinctive look.
Food will also be available, with chicken wings, chips, mozzarella dippers, nachos and pizzas all on the menu.
Co-owner Louise Sainsbury and manager Matt Johnson are behind Memory Box and Club 88 – two existing Croydon nightspots.
So hopes are high about the imminent opening of FunHouse.
When will FunHouse open?
Saturday, December 1, is the day the adults of Croydon will get to try out the ball pits.
The venue opens its doors for the first time at 4pm that day.
In an announcement about the opening FunHouse playfully said: “We want you to come and play with our 200,000 balls.”
