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!
