Pin Up Arcade Bar in Waterloo

Postby Che » Sun Dec 24, 2017 12:09 am

I’ve been working on this project ‘part time’ for over a year now, and it’s just about ready to go!

Pin Up will have a dozen or so pinball machines ranging from em’s to newer dmd’s (unboxing GoTG this week!), and another 30-40 classic vids and redemption style games like Skee Ball.

Finally through all the inspections now so slated the soft open for Dec 29th, going to regular hours in the new year. Follow the Facebook page for hours and events.

Come check it out if you’re in town!

Ahh, my old University stomping grounds. Used to stumble into the Pizza Pizza for a slice after a pub crawl, before getting back to my place on Hickory.

I'll be down in Cambridge until the 30th. How soft is your open? ;-)

Humbug........ the wife would kill me if I went to play pinball while I'm suppose to be sitting on the couch, doing nothing and staring at my nephews.

Went to WLU 2001 - 2005. Used to live on Bricker. You could go out every night of the week and there would be a bar night somewhere. Wednesday night Phil's was a must. Unfortunately haven't been back since but maybe this is my excuse to pay a visit?

Good luck with the new arcade!

Would love to see you there Chris! Doors will open at 8pm.

Let me know if you’re going to make it.
