Great variety of free arcade games! Including some newer fighting games that I haven't seen elsewhere. Staff was fast and friendly. Decent prices for River North.
I love the place!!! Besides great vibes, music, and games, I love that this place is super unpretentious. There is no cover fee, the drinks are reasonably priced, and the games are free. I got the strawberry mangroni pop and I don’t think there was much alcohol in it but it tasted good. There is a nice beer selection as well. All-in-all a must visit place in Chicago!
