Pins Mechanical Co (Charlotte)

36 taps as well as a limited bottle/can menu. All drafts and cocktails are provided at a fixed price (imports and macro beers are priced identically).

Tap service is provided at either end of this large facility, but pull from the same kegs so don’t look for an alternate selection. The draw of course are their 12 mechanical duckpin bowling lanes, but there’s a lot more… There are about 16 pinball machines scattered about at $0.50 a game, but there are at least 30 other classic video games which are all free. Patio pong and giant Jenga are also free; ping pong tables and bocce ball courts are also available by the half hour or the hour ($6 and $10 respectively).

It is a very big place, but needs to be. The line to get in (they have registration kiosks where you need to sign in) and waits for games can be long when crowds build. All ages are welcome until 8pm; it’s 21 and only after that. A food truck or two are routinely parked out front. 

Directly next-door to Common Market in South End.
