The spacious basement bar in Holborn resounds to the thwack and whistle of little white balls flying through the air. We've had bowling and karaoke and now have a bar devoted to ping pong (or wiff-waff, as Boris Johnson would have it). The large open plan venue is filled with ping pong tables 17 in all - which you can book in advance; there's a membership scheme for serious ping pong fiends though anyone can book if they fancy a game. While table tennis is central to the operation, the drinks are far more than just an afterthought. A lot of care has gone into the cocktail menu and the bar area has been designed to evoke something of the old Victorian gin palace, albeit one with a decidedly contemporary vibe. This is reflected in the liquid offerings; the menu puts new twists on British classics: there's a prosecco-topped Gin Lane Spritz, a ginger-infused Apple Jack Slim - there's even (of course) a Wiff Waff cocktail, blending gin, Earl Grey tea syrup and cucumber a deliciously English drink. The white-tiled dining area offers superior wood-fired pizzas and a range of anti-pasti and sharing boards. The perfect fuel to warm you up before a game.
