About SPiN Galactic: SPiN New York is a first of its kind nightclub concept from Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon.  With its roots in a weekly underground social event started in 2007, SPiN is largely considered the catalyst for the rise in popularity of the once-nerdy sport. After opening the flagship club in Manhattan’s Flatiron District in 2009, SPiN has become a rapidly growing brand. Currently, SPiN owns and operates a club in New York City with additional locations in Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Toronto and Dubai.
