Pinball and Arcade Rooms

Pinball and Arcade Room

Not so long ago, some people claimed pinball bred juvenile delinquency and it was driven underground to become part of rebel culture.

Now, the rebels at Melt Bar and Grilled are helping to bring pinball back, creating a pinball and arcade game paradise at our Independence, Avon and Short North Columbus locations, with more coming soon. Get your twitch on at Melt and enjoy Ohio’s best gourmet comfort food and craft beer selection. All games are available for play during all operating hours, every day!

Cleveland arcade game and pinball fanatics should check out the brand new game and pinball room at the Melt Bar and Grilled Independence location! The game room includes several classic arcade games like Donkey Kong and Pac-Man as well as pinball favorites like Ghostbusters, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Walking Dead and, of course, the coolest pinball machine of them all = the very rare Kiss pinball machine! All games use quarters and there is even an on-site change machine, just like arcades back in the day.

We also host monthly tournaments sponsored by our friends at Kidforce Pinball. Tournament entry is free and all participants and their guests get 20% off food and drink at Melt! All tournaments are officially registered with the IFPA, International Flipper Pinball Association! Visit our events page for details on the next tournament.
