Ballie Ballerson is set to launch in Edinburgh this summer.
The ball pit cocktail bar is taking over McSorley’s Irish Bar following the success of its flagship venue in London’s Shoreditch, which boasts “over 1 million balls, giant ball pits, and nostalgia-inducing cocktails”.
Currently under renovation, the bar will feature custom murals including work by graffiti artist Armando, along with an on-site wellness room.
The expansion of Ballie Ballerson into Edinburgh will create 40 jobs including six managerial positions. General manager Olaya Martinez and bar manager Alin Tur will be relocating to Edinburgh from the London Ballie Ballerson to open the 300-capacity ball pit bar.
Founder Wenny Armstrong said: ‘We’re so excited to bring all things Ballie Ballerson to Edinburgh. Scotland was an easy choice when expanding Ballie Ballerson outside of England because we know Scots are always up for a good time. It’s been difficult keeping it a secret but we’re so glad to get the news out there and be ready to welcome some new ballers through our doors.’
