Formerly the original location of Headquarters, this early arcade bar became the third outpost of Replay in late 2016 after a split between HQ’s partners. The bar program is more focused on the extensive, high-end beer list than Replay’s other bourbon-centric locations, and the games (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tron, NBA Jam) are all still free to play.

I prefer the Headquarters in Lincoln Park over the one in River North because of the space but sometimes the Lincoln Park one gets VERY crowded. I love the drink options as well as the games being free. I make my way to one of the Headquarters at least once a month and always have a great time.
Headquarter is a bit more bro-ey than other arcade bars of the sort, though Logan Square's Emporium is starting to give it a run for its money. But unlike most other spots, the games are free. The space is large enough to get lost in, and the beer list is long and the prices are reasonable.
From the neon signs to the super long list of craft beers this is a great place to hang out with a large group. The best part about this place is that all the old-school arcade games and pinball machines are free. I'd definitely take anyone who visits from out of town to this bar.
