Steve Zahler, owner and curator explains, "We're on a mission to bring back this beloved and historic entertainment art form. For a true comeback, pinball must be accessible to everyone and not just found in places like bars where kids can't go. Here, friends and family enjoy quality time together, teachers bring students for STEM and science field trips, couples reconnect and fun parties are celebrated." For those who want to dig deeper, there's the Interactive Pinball Exhibit (see inside a live pinball machine), documentaries and detailed game information.


All ages are invited to experience the wonderful pastime that has captivated audiences for decades. Conveniently located in beautiful Kips Bay Manhattan, this social and family-friendly environment focuses on clean, safe and innocent fun. In the words of the founders, "We’re so excited to bring our passion for pinball to New York City. It is our mission to bring back pinball in a big way and hope to see it re-emerge throughout the country and beyond. Hope to see you soon!"
