Great for:

Bounce Farringdon is Europe’s first social ping pong club. The Holborn venue takes inspiration from the explosion of stylish table tennis social venues stateside, and the huge resurgence of interest in the game within the UK over the last few years.

Designed by award-winning interior designer Russell Sage (The Zetter Townhouse, The Hospital Club and The Savoy), Bounce Farringdon is built on the very same site where the game of table tennis was originally invented by Jaques & Son. Featuring a timeless, yet stylish and edgy interior, the bar, restaurant and club offers Londoners the chance to experience the game of table tennis afresh – in a 12,500ft2 central London space a short walk from Farringdon and Chancery Lane tube stations.

Bounce Farringdon in Holborn has raised restaurant seating for up to 130 guests, with an expansive view overlooking the playing area.

The open plan venue offers a tantalising menu, complimented by a 7ft wide open counter wood-burning pizza oven; a 40ft bar laid out in an arc around the playing area; and 17 table tennis tables including an Official 2012 Olympic table.

There is also an uber-stylish private room at Bounce Farringdon, available for exclusive hire and featuring three specially commissioned ping pong tables, alongside the private cocktail bar and DJ booth. Customers can choose from a seasonal drinks menu including a range of boutique London beers, fine wines and classic British cocktails inspired by the famous London gin Palaces.

The ‘Jaques’ private room is best suited to group size of between 35 – 100, it has a maximum of 3 ping pong tables, karaoke, a wireless presentation kit, it’s own personal bar and bar tender and booth seating. It also has Funktion One sound system and the facility to play a playlist through an iphone/ipod/ipad.
