Emporium Arcade Bar - Logan Square - Chicago
Emporium boasts two locations, plus two additional outposts arriving soon in the Fulton Market District and San Francisco. It's an ingenious concept allowing adults to be kids again, playing off their childhood obsessions with arcade games.
What sets Emporium apart from the juvenile attractions is that guests may drink alcohol as they play video games, pinball, and table games like air hockey, foosball and shuffleboard. It's casual, yet vibrant in color and live entertainment, thus creating a nightlife atmosphere.
The Logan Square location is the only one serving food. There's an indoor food truck that's open Thursday through Saturday. The food concept frequently rotates with offerings like burgers, tacos and Asian street food.
