SPiN Toronto, a ping pong social club located in the heart of Toronto’s King West neighbourhood, 461 King Street West to be exact. 12 ping pong tables, two rooms, two bars, and a full food menu and cocktail list.
A group of us went last Friday night and while a little sceptical – I’m not the greatest at ping pong. We all had some craic, there is a great atmosphere about the place. DJ was blasting out RnB hip hop 90’s style while the whole venue was glow in the dark.
It can be pricey enough at $34 per hour for a table but if you want to reserve a table and not wait it’s $60 -after 5pm. Not your typical Friday night ritual (who can afford $60 a week on ping pong) but definitely one to keep in mind for a birthday, special occasion or just if you were in the mood for trying something different. Drinks were reasonably priced at $7 vodka soda and $12 cocktails. The beer list is also fairly extensive, Lawn Chair, Mr. Huff, Happy Hour, Barking Squirrel, Moosehead, Cracked Canoe, Czechvar, Boris Organic, Magners, Heineken, Creemore and Guinness.
In our opinion definitely a must try at least once!
Fun fact – actress Susan Sarandon helped launch SPiN.
