Pins Mechanical Co.

Two words: adult slide. Yes, you read that right. In addition to two floors of foosball, pinball, duckpin bowling, ping pong, and bocce, Pins is home to two giant silver slides that will glide you right into nostalgia. 

Coop De Ville

2305 Smallman Street
Delectable fried-chicken dishes and Southern eats paired with entertaining activities, including duckpin bowling, arcade games, pinball, and more, make for a memorable night, regardless of age. But for those over 21, two different bar menus elevate an already amusing experience. 

Shorty’s Pins x Pints

The Waterfront and North Shore
Bocce courts, vintage arcade games, duckpin lanes, pinball machines, foosball tables, and shuffleboard tables: old-school recreation is the heart of Shorty’s Pins x Pints, promoting friendship and community among all who enter. 


25 Market Square
Above The Market Exchange lives this festive bar offering a mix of traditional arcade games and pinball. Sip on Barcadias handcrafted cocktails while chowing down on bites available from Slider Vibes. Oh, and theres a speakeasy located in the back, but maybe that was meant to be kept a secret …. 

Arsenal Bowl

212 44th Street
Dubbed Where old-school-bowling vibe meets nightclub atmosphere” by the New York Times, for those who would rather skip the duckpin bowling fad, Lawrencevilles Arsenal Bowl is the perfect spot to indulge in the timeless activity.
