    Hello Pinside! I've been making trips out to Fayetville, AR frequently lately, and I was hoping to find some pinball in the area. After looking a bit online I can't find anything, but Fayetville is such a popular town with a huge university right in the middle of it, I imagine there has to be SOME machine somewhere, right?

    Pinball is illegal in Arkansas.

    (Yes.....I'm just being a smart ass)

    So this is my first post here, and I just want to say I'm thrilled at how fast I got responses. That's awesome.

    Thanks for your kind words about Fayetteville. I have lived here for over 40 years and have no desire to live anywhere else. I'm sure there are some pinball machines somewhere around here, if not in Fayetteville then try Springdale or Bentonville. I own four (WOZ, Tron Pro, Metallica Pro, and ACDC Pro). I must confess, however , except for a few machines scattered around this is pretty much a desert area for public pins. Good luck in finding them.

    How close are you to Hot Springs? I just spoke with a guy named Ben, who has 86 games, but is starting to downsize his collection.

    I'm bumping this post as I'm solving the pinball crisis in Arkansas. I'm opening up a new place called "Pinpoint" here in Fayetteville. It will be Arkansas' first pinball bar. Like most of us in the hobby, instead of making wise investments and good decisions with my money I went all in on two of my favorite things, booze and pinball! I've got most of the machines in my Pinside collection there at the space, but will hopefully aquire some newer tables and keep the rotation cycling from time to time. I'm hoping to have a soft opening by the end of the month and be in full swing in April. Look me up in you're in the area! We are on FB and Instagram and the like

    That's great news!

    Cool. AR is a dead state for pinball. I always need to leave the state and go to TX, IL, OH, MI or WI for games. Good luck with your new business venture.

    Don't forget the EM's, your older customers will welcome them.

    Can you please elaborate on available parking? Onsite, offsite, # of spots, cost?

    Oh, and a beer list, too.

    Is this place now open? Thinking about dropping by sometime soon.

    I checked out their Fb pg and website. Appears to be open pretty much 7 days a week. Probably one of the better bars in Arkansas.

    #17 2 years ago

    I'm going to check it out in the next couple of weeks. My wife and I are headed that way for a short vacation. (west Siloam Springs) I will report back when we get home.

    Ok, so my wife and I stopped by Pinpoint in Fayetteville, AR this afternoon and were not disappointed at all with the experience.

    I walked up to the bar and introduced myself to Bo, one of the owners, and told him I read about the place on a Pinside thread. It turns out he is the one who started the thread.

    He couldn't have been a nicer guy. Super genuine and easy to talk with.

    Now about the bar...cool! The place was very clean and in a nice row of older buildings just off the square. To get to the bar you enter the street level door and go down a short flight of stairs, and that just adds to the already good ambiance. I can't remember exactly how many machines but I think it was around 15. He could maybe chime in with a list.
    The bar also had a skee ball game 2 premium dart boards for steel tip darts and a good supply of board games to play.

    The bar appeared to be well stocked with drinks and ready for you to stop by.

    Ummm…my bad BeatBachs didn't start the thread. He just bumped it after 3 years for a great reason.
