Unique “Ball Pool Bar Dive” Bar Hits Japan! Drink Up And Jump In Colored Balls!


Dive Into Your Childhood Memories – With A Highball In Hand!

Remember as a kid, when your parents would take you to the kind of restaurant that offered this “fun pit” for you to enjoy?


Well in Japan, the fun continues even after you are old enough to drink – because they turned this “pit of fun” into a “Ball Pool Bar Dive!”

According to RocketNews24:

“It’s 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!”

90-minutes of “all-you-can-drink” plans cost 2,000 yen for women and 3,000 yen for men – roughly $20 for women and $30 for guys, which is fair because we bring the best ball dives!


Thanks to “RocketNews24”, here is the bar information:

  2. The ball pit dive bars looks like fun! I’m sure they can get kind of gross after a while, but fun idea.

  3. The backpacks and crafts are very creative. My kids were young when ball pits were all the rage. It was short lived fun in my family since at least one of the three developed pink eye or sported a funky rash within a few hours. We dubbed them germ pits. Maybe they developed a way to disinfect the balls?

  4. Thinking outside the box (so to speak). The only thing different here I can think of is Christmas crafts in December at a bar. Drinking and a glue gun hmmm…….

    This is why I love “everything Japan”…dive in!


  8. I am sure that I would spill my wine in that ball pit! I think I might just leave that to the youngsters, John.
    Best wishes, Pete.
