Columbus, Ohio – Rise Brands announces today a new 16-Bit Bar+Arcade location in Bridge Park, located in Dublin, Ohio. The growth will create more than 40 new jobs.
The Dublin 16-Bit will be located just north of Pins Mechanical Co. in the same building along Riverside Drive. The 7,300 square foot facility will offer more than 40 classic arcade cabinets with additional games rotating on and off the floor at any given time. The Dublin 16-Bit will be the first to incorporate a design evolution to the experience people in Ohio have grown to love. The new design provides guests with soft seating living rooms throughout the space; along with a new console gaming lounge. This location is set to open late summer 2018.
“Dublin has been exceptionally welcoming to our Pins Mechanical Co concept, opening a 16-Bit next to Pins will provide a full entertainment experience in Bridge Park” said Rise Brands owner Troy Allen. “Bridge Park has delivered on all our expectations, the energy throughout the development has been amazing. So much so, that we’ll be thrilled to unveil our new QSR (Quick Serve Restaurant) concept later in 2018 right between our Pins and 16-Bit locations in Bridge Park.”
Bridge Park is home to the AC Hotel by Marriott, multiple retail, restaurant and bar locations, condos, apartments and more. It’s located just across the river from historic Downtown Dublin. “Pins has been a huge hit here at Bridge Park and we can’t wait for 16-Bit Bar+Arcade to add to the vibrancy of the district,” said Crawford Hoying Principal Brent Crawford. “Rise Brands continues to open concepts that resonate with the communities we develop, and we couldn’t be happier with our continued partnership with the Rise team.”
16-Bit Bar+Arcade redefines how a night out is best played. This retro watering hole, offering classic arcade games, old school cocktails and craft brew was first opened by Rise Brands in downtown Columbus in 2013, a second location in Cleveland, Ohio in 2014 and a third location in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2015. Additional locations are currently under construction in Nashville, Tennessee and Indianapolis, Indiana.
“At the end of the day, we are a company that loves to create kick-ass brands. We love to start with an idea – a hobby – and grow it into an experience that truly engages people. A place in which people want to be and stay. A place you want in your community – in my community,” said Allen.
Rise Brands manages all of the operations, marketing, merchandising, partnerships and overall brand experience from their Columbus, Ohio headquarters. Rise Brands employed approx. 250 people companywide in 2017. Employment growth in 2018 will exceed 500 creative and spirited brand ambassadors.
