MK, Lauren, Wayne and Mo went into Center City to check out the Royale with Cheese from Butcher Bar and to take a peek at Spin.

Spin is a ping pong bar that opened on September 15th. It’s located on the corner of 15th and Walnut and Eater.com described it oh so perfectly right here:
It has scratch-and-sniff wallpaper, a bathtub filled with balls, and a cocktail called the Gin Jawn
Spin, the ping pong social club/bar/restaurant originally co-founded by actress Susan Sarandon, is expanding into Philadelphia with a 12,000-square-foot subterranean venue that puts your parents’ basement rec room to shame. The new Center City location, on 15th and Walnut, includes 17 Olympic-grade ping pong tables, graffiti murals, a full bar, a bathtub filled with ping pong balls, scratch-and-sniff wallpaper, a DJ booth, and bleachers for watching the ping pong pros in action.
