Hang out with the cool kids at Japan’s newest unusual drinking hole!

Why go to a plain old bar to drink when you can down cold beverages in a pit full of balls? That’s the theory behind Japan’s latest drinking venue, where customers kick off their shoes and sink their bodies into a cosy ball pit while ordering cocktails from the menu. Called Ball Pool Bar Dive, the Osaka establishment opened at the end of July and has already made news around the country for its unique ball pit, which is strictly for the over 20 year-olds.


▼ As the first of its kind in Japan, the bar has featured on TV variety shows.


Filled with over 20,000 coloured balls, customers can jump around to their hearts content in the ball pool, complete with changing lights.

▼ This clip shows why the word “dive” appears in the bar’s name!


90-minute all-you-can-drink plans cost 2,000 yen for women and 3,000 yen for men.


The beverages come served in cute-looking mason jars with lids to save people from spilling liquid in the ball pit.


▼ With no table or chairs, it’s the ball pit or nothing at this establishment!

It’s a great place to hang out with friends so be sure to pop by next time you visit Osaka!
