A new multi-purpose entertainment venue in Maidstone has offered further clues as to the possible future of the high street, combining leisure, hospitality and entertainment to create an “exceptionally popular” experience.


Ballin’, located on Maidstone’s Bank Street, has already generated a significant reputation since opening in May, with DJ sets, live boxing shows, and cinema events taking place alongside its expansive gaming offer.

“Set over two floors, this versatile, high-end venue offers a unique experience and something for everyone,” reported Kent Online. “It’s a gaming and live sports destination, food outlet, cocktail bar and nightclub all in one.”

“Customers can watch live sports on huge, state-of-the-art flatscreen TVs and enjoy a game of Table Tennis, American Pool or Beer/Pornstar Pong while enjoying delicious drinks, cocktails and food.”

The venue is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and has received “a huge amount of positive feedback and reviews” since its opening.

“The team are working hard to keep up the momentum by ensuring standards remain high and everyone who walks through the door has an amazing time.”

“The founders are incredibly enthusiastic about future plans for the venue, which include new gaming and events to be introduced in 2022.”
