After a long day at work, you might feel like pulverizing some drywall with a baseball bat. But sometimes delicately tapping a ping-pong ball will have to do instead, and that’s OK. Spin is a bar that really feels more like an underground table tennis society. Come in with your entire team during Happy Hour to play a few rounds and eat fun bar snacks like hot chicken sliders, margherita flatbreads, and za’atar fries. Spin also works perfectly for larger private events like holiday parties and birthdays.
