What do you get when you combine 24 craft beers on tap with 37 1980s and ’90s arcade games, from NBA Jam to Super Mario Bros. to Mortal Kombat? A packed room crammed with date nights, big groups and sheepish men in their early thirties who look as if they’ve never been in a bar before.

Get here early or at an off-time during the week, and Emporium will feel like your own arcade room...with beer. The beer selection is good, albeit a little IPA-heavy—but that's everywhere in Chicago. Go here for arcade favorites like NBA Jam and Street Fighter, however, if pinball is your jam, head over to Logan Arcade or Headquarters.
