Columbus pinball arcade closing current location

In the face of Sideswipe Brewing’s impending closure, Arcade Super Awesome will also close up shop at its west side location inside of the brewery.

Known for its collection of retro pinball machines, the Arcade posted a statement to its Facebook page that it will close its location at Sideswipe Brewing at the end of the month.

“Our time in our current form is coming to an end. But, like the mighty Hydra of Lerna, chop off one head and two appear. Get your quarters in at our current location. We’re out of there at the end of the month. More to come,” the arcade’s statement reads.


In late June, Sideswipe Brewing Co. owner Craig Herron announced his plans to close the brewery on July 22.

Arcade Super Awesome’s future plans are not known, and the concept couldn’t be reached before this story was published. In the past, Arcade Super Awesome has also collaborated with Melt’s former Short North location and Yellow Brick Pizza. It has also hosted pinball tournaments at Heart State Brewing.
