FTW Chicago
Photograph: Anthony Tahlier

FTW Chicago brands itself as a Steampunk-inspired arcade. You can play classic arcade games like skee-ball, pop-a-shot and air hockey or try your hand at a six-hole indoor mini golf course while sipping on some cocktails or beers. Unlike most other arcade bars in the city, FTW has prizes.

I LOVE THIS PLACE. You can spend $25 on games and easily spend 2+hours there. It still seems to be somewhat under wraps and is lacking the long lines our city's other arcade bars are plagued with. Don't leave without playing the 6 hole mini golf - the detail in the design of each hole recreates scenes of the city that are just really cool to interact with (and a great activity for visitors without having to take them to every sightseeing spot in the city!).
