The $300 million Bottleworks district has announced the addition of two entertainment tenants for the former Coca-Cola bottling plant on Massachusetts Avenue near downtown Indianapolis. Developers Hendricks Commercial Properties say Pins Mechanical and Living Room Theater are the newest additions to the 11-acre site.

Pins includes duckpin bowling, pinball, ping pong, along with craft beer and cocktails, and is the second concept of Rise Brands from Columbus, Ohio. Rise Brands founder and owner, Troy Allen, says he was drawn to Bottleworks by its history.

“We transformed an old tire- and oil-change garage in downtown Columbus into duckpin bowling lanes. So, we know how rewarding it can be to keep the integrity of the building’s history, all while making it a destination for generations to come,” said Allen. “The Bottleworks story is one we want to be a part of—it’s an exciting time to be in Indy.”

Living Room Theater will feature seven screens to show local, independent and international films in a European-style cafe setting. Its the third location for the chain, after spots in Portland, OR and Boca Raton, FL.

“Mass Ave is an ideal location and the Bottleworks District offers plenty of space,” said Living Room Theaters CEO Steve Herring. “We’ve looked at expanding to Indy for years and this development is the perfect fit.”

Both tenants are scheduled to open in phase one of the project in 2020.
