SPiN Ping Pong Returns to LA at The Standard Downtown
The SPiN table at the Mondrian LA.
It looks like the SPiN Ping Pong Club is once again trying to make it in Hollywood.
failed venture limited engagement at the Mondrian Los Angeles last year, SPiN LA is being revived by Susan Sarandon and her boyfriend/biz partner, Jonathan Bricklin, along with fellow co-owners Franck Raharinosy and Andrew Gordon at the The Standard Downtown LA.
The Huffington Post reports that hotelier Andre Balazs is very much on board with the idea and will even make some "major" changes to the hotel's mezzanine floor of which SPiN will occupy the entire space.
The club is expected to launch in early Fall and its opening will be the culmination of a bunch of SPiN tournaments held at other Standard Hotels in Miami and New York.
The SPiN membership pricing for the LA club has not been set but there are usually two ways to pay to play--monthly for about $65 a month or annually for about $650. The perks of membership include one hour of complimentary play per month, 50 percent court rentals, the ability to reserve a ping-pong court up to five days in advance and priority access to special events. Don't need a membership? You can pay about $20 for 30 minutes of play.
We're not exactly sure what sort of playing privileges will be bestowed to hotel guests but we'll do our best to find out. In the meantime, read the HotelChatter Review of the Standard Downtown Los Angeles HERE.
