From the beer selection to the pinball choices, emporium is a must visit.
Come for the games, stay for the amazing beer selection
90's kid's place
I think I played every game in there at one point in my life. Love that place.
The video games here always start off a great night here!
So fun...arcade games and good drinks, specifically beer
I like that there's still plenty of room to move about the bar. Other arcade bars are packed with so many games that socializing becomes difficult.
Who doesn't love hipsters and arcade games?!?
Spectacular place. Games are in great condition. Great beers on tap.
This is the best to meet anyone. Mingle talk and explore. Try a lot of their craft beer as well. (Don't forget to play some Arcade games)
Booze and games? What's not to like!
Play "Off-Road" and have a pipeworks beer. Also, tapper is a great game
My geeky self loved this place, beer and video games. Look to the back corner for NBA Jam, Blitz, and Mortal Kombat. Also don't overlook Super Mario Bros in the front. Love the pinball as well!
They have a great beer selection and boulevard on tap. A must visit on any trip to Chicago
Always decent beers on tap. Galaga, Theater Magic, and Tapper make it even better. Bring cash for tokens.
Great selection of pinball machines.
Tons of great classic arcade games that leaves me with a great sense of nostalgia that makes parting way difficult. Oh and did I mention they have a good selection of beers?
Love it here.
The Indie City Arcade game next to the token station is free - doesn't need coins.
you might want to post somebody at the entrance so randoms like me are yelled at when they stumble into a private party by the private party goon. I just wanna see my friend's band.
Loads of 80s arcade games, cute bartenders and craft beer.
Great beer selection and classic games.
Great live music and great 90's movies
90s hip hop, every arcade game you can think of and of course, beer/".
MK2 and Marge on Simpsons don't work
Fugging hipsters damn
The most amazing thing about this place (other than the killer beer selection and video games) is the fact that you can order Antique Taco from next door and they'll deliver it.
Pinball and arcade games just 25c a play. (Token required.) Or try Super Hexagon on the Indy City Arcade machine for free.
The night I went the DJ was awesome. A lot of Hipsters and arcade games from back in the day. Pretty cool spot.
Grew up in arcades... Fairly disappointed. Where's police trainer?! Or Revolution X?!
awesome gaming fun! tonight bigg picture is playing. cool stage area.
$10 purchase $30 or more
Cool bar! They close at 2 so that kind of sucks but the games are old school and its cool to chill here. But don't be playing games at 1:59 cuz they will seriously turn off the games at 2!!!
PAC man rulezz
Grab a drink and bring back memories playing one old school arcade game after another in the Wicker Park neighborhood.
NBA Jam bro! Seriously this place is super solid and has a decent beer list. Sometimes people hog certain games but eh what are you going to do?
So many hipsters.
Don't leave your coat on the rack. It won't be there when you come back.
Play BurgerTime! 3=D)
If you intend to use a credit card here; it will also ask you to give it your I.D. ☞ No wi-fi; which is probably intentional.
Avoid Saturday nights. Too packed to even get to most games, let alone get a drink. Best in the afternoon.
You can try and break my Tapper record...but not gonna happen
The bar is cool, with vintage arcade games, and it's also located in a cool street, with vintage clothes shops
You can't climb up the ladder if you have the hammer in your hand.
Save everyone a little grief and read the chalkboard. Those are the only beers available. And no Miller Lite.
VS Mario Bros is eating coins at the moment. But Q*Bert...gold.
Duck Hunt please. Took a round to get used to the controls again but soon you'll be knocking down ducks & clay discs from the pixel sky. Where's my PowerPad!??
Just like childhood... But you can have beer while playing arcade games!!!
