Pins Mechanical Co. & 16-Bit Bar + Arcade officially opened in The Gulch on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Both concepts come from Hospitality company, Rise Brand. In Nashville, they connected both concepts under one roof so guests can play video games, bowl, and enjoy drinks all at the same time. Nashville is Pins Mechanical Co.’s sixth location and 16-Bit Bar + Arcade’s seventh location, which have outposts in Ohio, Indiana, and North Carolina. Nashville Guru stopped by to get the look inside.


Pins Mechanical Co.

Pins Mechanical Co. includes duckpin bowling, themed pinball machines, foosball, and bocce ball. The bar offers a variety of beer and themed drinks. Pop in for a signature cocktail like the Pinball Wizard or stay a while and play some games. Although no food is served at Pins, there are weekly rotating food trucks. This retro, yet sleek establishment is perfect for the whole family, including your pups! After 8:00pm, it is 21 and over only, though.
