The Anti-Valentine's Party at Bounce - Escape the roses and candlelit shmaltz


Jan 07, 2015 | News

Bounce - Anti-Valentine's PartyRoses are red... and have absolutely no place at Bounce on Saturday 14th February 2015. This is not a love festival. This is not a place to hold hands or smooch the face of someone you luurrvve. There will be no tender touching. No furtive glances. If Paris is the city of love, then Bounce is the town of platonic partying.

This is one London venue that won’t be sinking under the weight of loved up loonies this Valentine’s Day – Europe's largest Ping-Pong and cocktail club, Bounce is throwing a good old fashioned party. If this sounds like it might be right up your street, then join us for the most epic Anti-Valentine’s Day party. Back for its third year, the glamorous underground establishment will be making sure guests abide by their strict Anti-Valentine’s Day rules – NO COUPLES, NO KISSING and definitely NO LOVE IN THE AIR!

In between sipping cocktails and ponging, partygoers can shake their sexy selves on the dance floor to dance tracks from DJ Mighty Atom (4 x winner UK DMC Team championships, 2nd in the DJ World Championship 2006). Or if your dancing’s not quite up to scratch, take part in reverse romance games and tournaments organised by the rambunctious Bounce Games Makers, including:  Single and Proud (round the table madness) and Cupid’s Day Off (mismatched guests will be selected at random to double-up for the matches).

As part of the Anti-Valentine sentiment – the establishment will throw the venue into almost complete darkness, the only light coming from the Keith Herring inspired UV artwork, which glows under Bounces amazing, one of a kind UV light installation. Should anyone be caught canoodling, Bounce’s Blackout Bouncers will step into action.
