We were looking for someplace inside on a hot afternoon and found this gem. My wife and I(50 somethings) enjoyed it almost as much as our kids(late 20's). We check out the beer selection and it was great, prices very reasonable. There were games and...More

My husband and I have been stopping here when in Chi-town for close to 4 years. The games are rotated regularly which is nice. The downstairs is open later at night - I wish it were open sooner as there are more pinball machines down...More

I try to be as detailed as possible, but to the point: 1. Location is fine. It's a nice area, and close to the usual shops/restaurants/etc. 2. There are likely over 50 machines, 99.99% of them working as expected in a big area. 3. My...More

This place is a great place to go to with friends who love the Arcade games and company. You will have fun no matter what you will end up doing, eating, drinking or just playing games.

For a business trip our company rented this facility for a night out. The staff was friendly but they were severely unprepared for all of us. (This could have been our company's fault.) The food came out late and there wasn't enough. Although they set...More

The staff really helped me out for a company event. I had people flying in at different times and they put aside a couple of tables to help us come and go over the course of 5 hours. The fact it was a slow Tuesday...More

One of our friends forgot her ID and was not allowed in, understandable. What wasn’t reasonable is making her wait outside for us on a very cold night. He wouldn’t even let her wait in the lobby area, very unprofessional. The rest of us loved...More

Games free but the beers are overpriced. Atmosphere is mediocre. Their doormen were unpleasant; they escorted us into the cold before our transportation was arranged.
