If you like going out (kind of) and gaming—this is your new hangout spot in Gastown.
Back and Forth Bar is Vancouver’s first ping pong bar, slated for a March 1st opening date.
The bar is modelled after a living room to give it a more ‘homey” vibe. It features 6 ping pong tables, suitable for all skill levels. It also offers players beer and wine on tap, a selection of spirits, snacks, and a comfortable atmosphere to kick back and relax.
Ping pong tables can be reserved for an hourly rate which ranges from $10 and goes up to $25 depending on the day of the week.
Besides ping pong, there will be board games and a variety of vintage video games—Super Mario Brothers anyone?
It’s the perfect alternative for those who like to feel social but don’t like the club scene.
The space also offers a unique venue to host a party or private corporate event.
Check it out at 303 Columbia Street in Vancouver. They’re open Sunday-Thursday from 4pm to 2am, and Friday-Saturday from 4pm to 3am.
