ping pong bar vancouver

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?
