How Flip Side was born...
After meeting online in 2011, one of Mark & Dana’s first dates revolved around playing a Family Guy pinball machine & drinking craft beer (thanks Willibrew)! For Mark, he was reunited with a hobby he once enjoyed during college and while living in Breckenridge, CO. For Dana, pinball was something new & exciting. Christmas came & their first pinball machine was the only gift they purchased (thanks Bundy). Five years, one marriage & forty-two machines later, Flip Side Pinball Bar is born.
Located across from the train station in downtown Westerly, RI, Flip Side touts eight pristine pinball machines, all of which have been lovingly restored & maintained by Mark. Rotating machines range from vintage (1970) to modern (2014) & everything in between. Supporting the local craft beer movement, Flip Side features an extensive can list from breweries throughout New England & a rotating tap from their good friends down the street at Grey Sail. Wine is hand-selected by Dana with guidance from her friend Jon from Sonoma Wine Group. As for cocktails? They’ve got five, creatively concocted from some of their favorite homies around the globe, just for you. If booze ain’t your thing, they proudly serve sodas & seltzers from Hosmer Mountain who’ve been tastefully bottling beverages in Willimantic, CT since 1958.
