Pincadia now open in Woolloongabba heritage building

November 13, 2017 by  

An interesting new addition has been introduced to the iconic Moreton Rubber Works building in Woolloongabba, which is said to have been vacant for over a year.

The 470-square-metre space within the heritage building has been taken over by a new business called Pincadia, known for its logo design that looks like a pinball machine.

Pincadia is the brainchild of business owner David Lowe and his wife, Tanya. The couple got the business idea when they used to invite friends over to their home for Friday dinners. They say there was always a special element to the dinners, as guests could enjoy a special collection of pinball and arcade games.

The couple’s collection of pinball machines is now arranged against the wall upstairs at Pincadia, whereas other arcade games and board games are available downstairs. Some of the games are provided to customers free of charge, whereas others cost $1.

The bar at Pincadia is available with tap and bottle craft brews. There is also a comprehensive wine and cocktail list. Hungry customers can enjoy a range of hotdogs, burgers, toasties, fries, and Chiko Rolls.

According to Lowe, a huge amount of effort was required to prepare the space to be compliant with safety standards. The renovation work involved a total rerun of gas and beer lines. New sensors also had to be installed. However, customers can now enjoy the unique atmosphere at Pincadia while some can even reminisce about childhood memories.
