Check out how awesome this bar made out of pinball backglasses looks. And my favorite Atari backglass art on the wall behind it. There’s tables with lit pinball playfields inside. TV screens above every pinball machine and a great 16 pin lineup. David Yopp’s new pinball bar in Memphis, Tennessee, “Flip Side,” looks awesome. It is now fully open and from the looks of recent pictures of it, Rockin’. Here’s the initial pinball lineup, courtesy of Pinball Map:
