I was traveling on business recently, and had a free night. Based on others mentioning this place, I decided to give it a try. WOW, just wow.
The place is really cool, even without the games, great bar, decor, music, etc... They had a dozen or so pins and all sorts of classic arcade games. The insane thing is all the games are free (with the exception one PIN, Aerosmith, and bubble hockey). The pins were in outstanding shape, as were the classic arcade games. There were signs on every game that instructed to "notify a staff member immediately if anything is not working", and I saw a staffer handle a pin issue on the spot, so they clearly care about game quality.
The lineup of pins was excellent. In addition to Aerosmith, they had Pinbot and Bride of Pinbot. Ghostbuster,Kiss, Addams Family, AC/DC, GOT, Monster Bash, Pirates of Caribbean, Metallica), and I am missing a few, but as you can see a terrific lineup. This was the first time I got to play Monster Bash, so that was great fun.
On the arcade game front, the two player fighting games, and NBA Jam were getting tons of play. I buzzed around and played games I grew up with like Frogger, Defender, Asteroids, Tempest, Galaga, Donkey Kong, PacMan. It was awesome to have so many old school video games in one place, all playing perfectly.
Anyone who lives near this place is lucky to have it close to home, and I highly recommend this for anyone traveling to Chicago.
