Signage is up at Pins Mechanical Company and 16-Bit Bar+Arcade. The massive 22,000-square-foot facility will open within the next 90 days.

Expect two indoor bars with 36 taps each, a rooftop bar with 24 taps and skyline views, and four fire pits.

It’s located in South End on Tremont near Common Market. The exact address is 307 W Tremont Ave.

Game inventory: 12 duckpin bowling lanes, 20 pinball machines, 30+ arcade cabinets, two pong consoles, two Jenga sets, two patio pings, two giant connect 4s, two foosball tables, bocce ball, ping pong table and a giant lite-bright. Pretty crazy. They’ve also got private event space and you can do a full buy-out if you’re throwing a huge event.

Background: Pins Mechanical Company is a a popular social house and 16-Bit Bar+Arcade has pretty much every classic arcade game from the 80s & 90s. Both are micro-chains with locations in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dublin, Nashville and Indianapolis. Rise Brands, the parent company, develops the concepts next to each other.

Why it matters: This will enhance the nightlife scene in South End (it’s walkable from Sycamore, Barcelona, Superica, Jeni’s and Hawkers) and further positions Tremont as a booming streets in Charlotte. Given that both are proven concepts and Rise Brands is an experienced operator, I expect Pins Mechanical Company and 16-Bit Bar+Arcade get off to a hot start and do very well.

Here’s a look at current construction and shots of other locations to give you an idea of how it’ll look once complete. We’ll keep you posted as they get closer to opening.
