TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A downtown Terre Haute arcade bar is expanding its layout thanks to recent funding.

Bar_Botics was awarded $2,500 through Open For Tourism, an initiative was created in 2020 by Launch Terre Haute, the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce and the Indiana Small Business Development Center.

The bar used to add a Star Wars themed outside patio that will allow the public to get a glimpse of the bar’s offerings from outside.

Co-owner Ethan Page said it’s a great opportunity to expand for their customers.

“As much as we love all of our cool and unique entertainment that we have to offer inside Bar_Botics,” Page stated. “It’s great for us to be able to bring some of that outside too and bring the enjoyment.”

Customers will be able to enjoy the patio during rain or shine with an unique awning that can open or close.

“Let in sunshine and fresh air and just be able to really enjoy the weather outside,” co-owner Alec Thompson said.
