The mothership of ping-pong clubs: a Todd Oldham-designed, 13,000-square-foot space with up to 16 courts, a full bar, and a nice little restaurant called Duck’s Eatery.
The idea behind SPiN was to give the game formerly relegated to your neighbor’s basement a new arena—one with expert equipment and forward-thinking design, tasty bar food, and good music. In other words, to make table tennis cool. Needless to say, the formula has been a successful one. The club draws all types, from hard-core enthusiasts to the attractive young things that come to take in the scene. And you know a trend has caught on when the two groups begin to blend.
