Manchester’s first adult-only ball pit bar is coming to Printworks

Bingo Balls features two giant sized ball pits, with events including including bingo nights, drag brunches and burlesque shows

Manchester’s first ever, adult-only ball pit bar launches this weekend at Printworks

The brand-new cocktail bar, Bingo Balls, features not one, but two giant sized, highly Instagrammable ball pits and has a host of exciting events planned over the coming months.

These include bingo nights, drag brunches and burlesque shows, alongside a line-up of Ibiza and Zante’s best DJs playing R&B, house and disco tunes late into the night. 

Packed full of photo opportunities, selfie opps include iconic 90s quotes in neon signs, a Barbie Vs Bratz wall and a 3D burn book wall where bar goers can add their own notes to the book, as well as seating areas all around the ball pits to get that perfect snap in the LED lit, giant ball pools. 

The fully stocked bar boasts an extensive cocktail menu as well as beers, ciders and soft drinks.

If this starts to get guests’ appetites going, then they can tuck into fries, bottomless chicken and onion rings in the diner area.

There’s even a retro inspired pick n mix stand to take party goers back to their childhoods.

Nicole Marie Lanera, from Bingo Balls, said: “Planning this venue has taken us all back to our childhoods and we think we’ve perfectly captured that 90s nostalgia with a 2022 twist.

“All the team here can’t wait to open our doors officially and invite the whole of Manchester down to jump right in!” 

Jason Shay, Printworks Centre Director said “We can’t wait for the doors to open at Bingo Balls. It’s a truly unique offering for the city and is sure to be an Instagram hit for everyone who visits.

“The variety of entertainment on suggests we’re going to be in for some amazing party nights this summer!” 

The Bingo Balls Opening Weekender launches with ‘Tipsy Falls & Glitter Balls’, which is a bingo night with a twist, on Friday 8th July, before diving headfirst into the official opening party on Saturday 9th July, with “non-stop entertainment” promised all night long and everyone is welcome. 

Tickets to the Bingo Balls Opening Weekender start from £3, and there’s also standing, seated, and VIP packages to choose from. Find out more and get tickets here.
