Does anyone know of any bars in the metro area with a ping pong table?
I know it's probably not the most conducive leisure activity for a bar to carry because of the space required and the fact that the ball can fly all over the place. But not being much of a pool player, I'd like the chance to play a couple of games over a cold one.

Excalibur in Grosse Pointe Park near Alter typically has one outside in the summer. That's all I know.

and when you're done playing ping pong, you can easily convert the table into beer pong

Along those lines, any bars with a shuffleboard or bowling machine still out there?

If you're talking about the table top shuffleboard, Dave and Busters in Utica has a few. I think Slap Sticks in Roseville still has one. Orleans in Mt Clemens also has a few.

The Sports Venue in Westland has a pong table in the back - on the west side of Middlebelt, about 1/4 mile or so south of Warren. The ParkJoy at Joy road and West Parkway (a mile or so east of Telegraph) had shuffleboard years ago, but don't know if it's still open - been at least 15 years since I went there.

I have been to a few Bars in my time and have yet to see a ping pong table in one.The North Shore Lounge in Houghton Lake was the last place I saw a shuffleboard table in a bar.Have to add the LAGER House to my list anyway.

I've always wondered about the fragility of a ping pong table in a bar setting and the space required for a really good competitive game there. And not to mention the occasions where the ping pong ball is going to be shot across the room! As it is, places that have air hockey have been putting up nets around those areas in fear of flying air hockey pucks, but again- in a spirited air hockey game, the participants are close to the table. In ping pong (or if one wants to be correct "table tennis"), one has to be able to move all around the table a LOT more.
I've never seen a ping pong table at a bar but I wouldn't doubt the existence of one at a local tavern.

The Newsroom on Dequindre at 9 1/2 Mile in Warren had a ping pong table a couple years ago. Not sure if they still do.
Can't think of the name of the place, a bar or small bowling alley on 9 Mile just west of Van Dyke has a long board.
Oh, I should add this: The Newsroom has horseshoe pits out back, they have leagues. Yippeee it's almost horseshoe season.

One night at the Lager House we were playing pong and the place was packed with people. They were lined up on both sides of the table and were getting smacked a lot. It stings for a few seconds, but no lasting damage from a ping pong ball strike to the head. Some of the crowd were actually enjoying getting hit.
