The Standard DTLA Makes Ping-Pong Cool Again
What do Susan Sarandon, ping-pong and The Standard Hotel in Downtown LA have in common? SPiN LA! What is SPiN LA you ask? In 2009, Susan Sarandon and her partners started this ping-pong social club in New York and are now bringing it to Angelenos. In late-November 2012, Susan and Andre Balazs will make this full-scale, modern and hip ping-pong club a permanent fixture inside The Standard Downtown. In this space you can play ping-pong (of course), but also drink, dine, meet and mingle, play other games and simply have a great time with new and old friends. Their Membership Philosophy is “to create a global community of people, socializing, exercising, and fantasizing together, thanks to a 2.7gram, 40mm, gas filled, celluloid, ricocheting round ball… with a coefficient restitution of .88.”
SPiN LA has not yet opened its posh doors but they have already started accepting founding membership with amazing benefits. You do not need to be a member to step foot into SPiN LA, but being a member does have its perks. The first 500 founding members will receive an exclusive invitation to the preview party along with their other benefits such as exclusive table reservations, 50% off court fees, exclusive SPiN LA gear and swag, discounts to The Standard Hotel restaurant, rooms, and stores plus much more. They have marked down the founding membership annual cost from $500 to $350. Full membership benefits and details available online
So if you love to play ping-pong, meet new people, wine and dine or simply just want a cool new place to hangout, check out SPiN LA once it opens.
