Retro Bowling & Arcade Bar to Open in Nashville

Pins Mechanical Nashville

A new entertainment concept is headed to Nashville that combines bowling, vintage video games and an array of cocktails.

Located at 1102 Grundy Street, Rise Brands, the parent company for 16-Bit Bar + Arcade and Pins Mechanical Co., will be opening their doors in Nashville soon.

This will be the first location in Tennessee, with five other locations in Columbus, Dublin, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Indianapolis.

The best part is these two concepts are connected so you can bowl, play video games, and have a drink. Here’s what we know so far.

  • 16-Bit is a retro watering hole offering classic arcade games (free with the purchase of a beverage), old-school cocktails and an awesome beer selection. With a name coined from the computer architecture that several of their 40+ vintage arcade games were built on, 16-Bit is redefining how a night out is best played.

  • Pins Mechanical Co. is the perfect place to enjoy old-school entertainment in a modern setting. Try some duckpin bowling or classic pinball, all while sipping on a wide selection of beers and themed drinks that will transport you back in time to 1950’s counter culture. 

  • 16-Bit/Pins Nashville will feature garage door openings for pull-in Food Truck options and 3 full bars with 24 taps, including an outdoor patio bar. 

Currently, they are hiring for several different positions from security, bartender, and event planner. Find all of the job listings here.
