INDIANAPOLIS — If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, a new place in the Bottleworks District off Massachusetts Avenue northeast of downtown Indianapolis is offering up a great experience.

Pins Mechanical is a duckpin bowling bar. It just opened right across from The Garage.

Inside, you'll find duckpin bowling lanes, bocce ball, pinball machines and ping pong.

Pins is family-friendly, meaning kids are welcome until 7 p.m. each night. After that, customers must be at least 21 years old.

If you've never heard of duckpin bowling, it's essentially a smaller version of regular bowling.

"The bowling lanes are a little shorter, the balls are a little smaller," said Pins General Manager Chris Imel. "You don't need shoes. You don't need anything like that. So, it's a little easier to play. It's also on a string pin so it's a little faster to kind of go through and definitely more fun."

Pins also offers one of the few downtown rooftop spaces, and they encourage you to bring outside food.
