River North’s Jaw-Dropping Ping Pong Bar Is Now Open

When you think of ping pong, you don’t normally think of Susan Sarandon, but that hasn’t stopped the Academy Award-winning actress from tossing her hat into the ring.

Spin Ping Pong BarSarandon’s new ping pong social club, SPiN, finally opened its doors to enthusiasts this Friday, March 4th, at 344 N. State Street in River North. The 16,000-square-foot venue also serves food, cocktails, and craft beers in a setting that, “emulates artistic expression, shared memories and epicurean discovery.”

“SPiN was created with a mission to first and foremost connect people. From the art on our walls to the intimate seating and lounge areas, to the entertainment and music we curate, every detail has been designed to create an atmosphere that drives creativity, connection and community,” says SPiN CEO, Pieter Vanermen. “When looking for our next location, we wanted to expand to a city that was rich in culture, innovation, culinary and entertainment, and Chicago was the perfect match. We are looking forward to bringing people together and making an impact on a city we deeply admire.”
