These are changing times for Analog II and Lopiez Pizza in downtown Moline.

This May, Analog II at 1405 Fifth Ave. will serve a variety of pizzas and appetizers and will get a new name –  Analog Pizza & Arcade. Lopiez, co-located at the Moline same address, will cease operations at the end of April.

Also, the rebranded Analog will be adding a 3,00-square-foot patio in June.

“We are really excited to add a patio like we have at Armored Gardens in downtown Davenport – another one of our concepts,” Analog co-owner Dan Bush said in a news release Monday, April 3. “Analog has always been seen as more of a winter place, and this will make us a destination all year long.”

Analog Co-Owner Devon Wiese added that the business lost its pizza vendor during the COVID-19 pandemic, so Lopiez agreed to step in two years ago and “help us out to keep us up and running.”

“The Analog crew has treated us like family since before we opened the first Lopiez. We can’t thank them enough for the opportunity and learning experience of opening a store in Moline,” Lopiez co-owner Andrew Lopez said in the release. “We are excited for the growth of both companies.”

The Lopiez Pizza sites in Davenport – at 429 E. 3rd St. and 2832 N. Brady St. – will remain open.

Analog’s Moline location has been open since 2019 and is the area’s most affordable arcade, offering more than 50 arcade and pinball games on two floors, according to information from Analog. It also offers a full bar with 20 drafts and a popular option for parties and events.

Analog Pizza & Arcade is currently hiring for open jobs in its kitchen, with hours available beginning Monday, May 1.
