Hong Kong is out to prove that ball pits are not just for kids with the launch of the city’s first ball pit cocktail bar. GlowBall, which has a 700 square feet ball pit with more than 750,000 balls, is open from Tuesday to Saturday for the next six months at Hilltop Plaza in Central. The venue is only open to patrons over 18 years old.

The new evenings-only venue has LED lights, thumping music, and a guest DJ on Fridays and Saturdays. The drinks menu includes innovative cocktails like the Guava Boba G&T and Murder in the Ball Pit with LED light ‘ice cubes’, as well as wine and prosecco by the glass and seasonal beers. If you’d rather dive into the ball pit sober, take your pick from non-alcoholic drinks like apple iced teas, cold brew coffee and mango boba.

Tickets for one-hour or 90-minute sessions at GlowBall are available on Eventbrite and are priced between HK$98 and HK$188, depending on the day, time, and length of your visit. There are only 30 guests allowed per session, so the organisers recommend that you make a reservation as walk-in slots are limited. And if you’re worried about hygiene, GlowBall says they will disinfect the balls every day and clean the pit once a week.
