EMPORIUM ARCADE BAR REOPENS FIVE LOCATIONS IN CHICAGO, BAY AREA FOLLOWING PANDEMIC SHUTDOWN
Sixth Location in Las Vegas Opened in February 2021
Emporium Arcade Bar, the lively venue known for its classic arcade games, colorful, fun-loving atmosphere and renowned drink menu, announces it reopened three locations in Chicago, including the first at Wicker Park (1366 N. Milwaukee Ave.) as well as Logan Square (2363 N. Milwaukee Ave.) and Fulton Market (839 W. Fulton Market). In the Bay Area, Emporium’s San Francisco (616 Divisadero St.) and Oakland (1805 Telegraph Ave.) locations are also now welcoming guests back following the nearly 15-month pandemic shutdown.
Emporium visitors can play all types of games, including classic arcade favorites, pool tables, pinball, foosball, basketball and many more at all locations which are free to enter. Guests can also enjoy a passionately curated bar showcasing a superb local craft beer program, an expansive liquor list, an innovative cocktail menu, a bevy of big-screen TVs and large projector screens ideal for watching Major League Baseball games or other sporting events.
For guests looking to enjoy Chicago’s gorgeous summer weather, Emporium’s Fulton Market location offers a spacious, 1,500-square-foot outdoor patio. Bay Area residents can enjoy warmer summer weather at Emporium’s Oakland location offering an outdoor patio as well as San Francisco’s intimate parklet.
In February of this year, Emporium Arcade Bar also opened its newest location at the mind-bending art and entertainment complex, AREA15, in Las Vegas. The spacious two story location also offers an imaginative cocktail and local craft brew selection, arcade classics and a collection of vibrant murals by local artists.
All locations also offer group bookings free of charge for guests interested in organizing a casual, hassle-free place to gather for birthday celebrations and other occasions. In addition, each location can also accommodate corporate buyouts.
“We are beyond excited to reopen all of our Chicago and Bay Area locations and are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive reception our newest location in Las Vegas has received,” said Danny Marks, co-founder, Emporium Arcade Bar. “After the last year, people are ready to socialize in a fun environment and we can’t wait to see our customers again.
