Looking for a fun night out with some loved ones? Sure, you can go the usual route and go to the same ol’ bar or restaurant that you usually attend, have some good conversation, guzzle a couple of drinks, and call it a night. Or you can switch things and add an extra dose of fun to your night. the Flipside is an arcade bar & lounge located in the heart of downtown Loveland that is certainly going to be your new favorite place for a good time!
We would like to welcome you to our blog! Here we will continuously post fun articles full of information about bar arcades, pinball machines, drink specials, and oh so much more. In this first post, we’d like to help you get to know us and what our pinball arcade and blog has to offer. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us today. Better yet, come visit us and see what we are all about.
If you’ve ever visited a barcade, it’s likely that you experienced a slightly dingy, cramped, and dark venue. Not here at the Flipside. We made sure to go above and beyond to provide our visitors with a comfortable and clean environment whether they are here to play or simply to grab a drink. The moment that you step into our doors, you’ll notice our welcoming lighting, full-service bar, a vast selection of pinball machines and games to choose from, plenty of space, and even a glowing tree for an extra bit of decor.
Assortment of Games
While we certainly offer everything you could hope for from a bar, what really sets us apart is, of course, our collection of games. We don’t just get whatever machine comes our way, we make sure that our customers have the best and most meticulously maintained games possible. As one of our patrons commented, “It’s as if a private collector opened their gem-quality selection to the public at more-than-reasonable rates.” From classic arcade games such as Pacman, skeeball, and air hockey to the best pinball machines out there. We ensure that every game is taken care of and curated. We keep a vigilant eye on games available for our arcade bar so that you’ll get to try out new pinball machines as well as your favorites.
Fun for All Ages
When you hear the word “barcade”, you probably don’t think of the term “kid-friendly”. While we do have our doors open until 12 am on Saturdays and 11 pm on the rest of the days so that our guests can stay out having drinks and hitting flippers, that doesn’t mean that we are strictly for adults. In fact, a lot of our customers that love the Flipside the most are kids! We make sure to provide a family-friendly atmosphere. This includes throwing the best birthday party for your little one and their friends! What kid doesn’t love games?
Tasty Beverages and Snacks
For the adults, we know that you probably have specific tastes when it comes to the drinks that you prefer. That’s why we make sure to have a full selection for you. Being in Loveland, there are so many breweries nearby that create delicious craft beers, so we make sure to have those on tap for you. Along with beer, we have a full-bar with 100+ spirits and liqueurs for you to choose from whether you are getting a round of shots for your group, being classy and ordering a martini, or just getting your favorite cocktail. If you are more of a fan of low-ABV and/or zero-proof options, just be sure to ask for the “EXTRA” menu. We know you’ll be hungry while you are here which is why we also make sure to have non-stop free snacks for you to munch on.
While coming to our arcade bar and lounge is an event on its own, we are also proud to offer special events for our guests including Free Play Monday ($10 will cover get you Free Play on all games from 5 pm - 11 pm) to DARK MODE: ON (we transform into a club type setting after 9 pm).

This can be anything from birthday parties to corporate events, graduation parties to mitzvahs. We will help you throw the event of the year, no matter what the occasion may be.
