They are two businesses, but under the same roof, and movement between them is seamless.
Pins Mechanical Co. features Duckpin, foosball, pinball, ping pong and bocce.
If you haven’t played Duckpins, it’s sort of a smaller version of bowling. The bowls are smaller, the lanes are shorter, and you get three chances to knock down the pins.
16-Bit Bar + Arcade features tons of classic arcade games, including Asteroids, Donkey Kong, NBA Jam, Mario Bros and many more.
What else? Patio games like patio pong, Giant Jenga, and Giant Connect 4. 3 full bars, including a rooftop bar with 24 taps, fire pits and a stunning skyline view.
Oh yeah, and there’s a giant Lite Brite that you can use to share your important messages.
There’s no cover, and there’s no charge for arcade games.
