The Goodnight has just launched in Austin, Texas and joins a growing list of bars that have ping pong tables. Since I arrived here in February 2012, the scene seems to be growing and the perception of ping pong, as a sport reserved for nerds, is changing fast.
I visited The Goodnight Austin last week and it felt a bit like The Belmont – a Rat Pack style after hours haunt that oozes style. There were two ping pong tables which looked onto the bowling alleys. They looked like pool table toppers but played well. As you know, I am hooked on Cinemagram and we shot a few GIFs on the night. You can see the best ones below. Find The Goodnight on the Uberpong ping pong map here.
– The ping pong tables are next to the pool tables so every time you accidentally hit a ball over there, you are met with a scowl from the local pool hustlers.
– Beer prices kept changing and food is expensive.
– Pretty far out from Downtown Austin so it is more of a destination for the whole night.
The Goodnight is located at 2700 West Anderson Lane, Austin, Texas 78757
