BOSTON, Oct. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SPIN, the original ping pong social club is set to open its doors on October 26th at 30 Melcher Street in the bustling Seaport District. Once you enter the space, you are transported to a surreal environment with pop art and graffiti donned walls from local artist extraordinaire, Blind Fox. With ping pong balls whizzing back and forth, ballers (SPIN's professional ping pong ball scoopers) can be seen on the floor making sure you don't have to chase any stray balls.  It's a perk you never imagined but appreciate the second you walk into the space. Energizing the world through ping pong, art and music, SPIN will feature 14 Olympic grade STIGA ping pong tables, two private rooms (the Viper Lounge and Garage Alley, collectively known as Copper Common), an inviting horseshoe bar and the iconic SPIN bathtub—inspired by Andy Warhol's Campbell's soup collection.
