Beginning on September 1st, Play! Hoboken will set aside hours for fully vaccinated patrons only twice a week in an effort “to give everyone the option to play at a time when they can feel safe.”

“Starting Wednesday, September 1st and continuing all day every Wednesday and from 9 AM until 2 PM every Saturday (except for September 18th due to a prior commitment), Play! Hoboken and Hoboken Table Tennis will ONLY permit entry to those customers who are fully vaccinated,” the business announced in an email blast this afternoon.
“The intention is to allow a comfortable environment for those who are vaccinated to enjoy the large indoor space at specific times on certain days.”
Located at 1012 Grand St., the Mile Square City establishment offers 17 pool tables, board games, table tennis, pinball machines, foosball, and five golf simulators.
They also have a cafe that serves food and beverages.
“We have the support of both the Mayor and the Governor – and I hope this policy brings back customers who have not been comfortable enjoying indoor recreation since the start of the pandemic,” Play! Hoboken Ian Rintel owner said in a statement.
“Providing safe spaces for customers is critical as we adapt to the pandemic, and I thank Play! Hoboken and Hoboken Table Tennis for providing an extra option for vaccinated residents to enjoy. I encourage other Hoboken businesses to consider similar measures, which we as a City would be glad to highlight and share with the public.”
