For the Win — A New Arcade Bar in Chicago

20150603_193838On June 5, 2015, FTW (For the Win) Chicago will open its 20,000 square foot arcade in the River East building next to Lucky Strike at 322 E. Illinois.  FTW’s bar will offer 32 craft beers and craft cocktails. There’s also a 104 square foot video wall that will show sporting events — GO HAWKS! and a six hole mini golf course.  If you are looking to host a private party or event, FTW Chicago offers four party rooms.  There’s also a retail store that will feature murals by local artists.  How AWEsome is that!


I had the pleasure of attending a VIP preview at FTW Chicago on June 3rd hosted by Here’s Chicago.  Food was delicious, enjoyed the arcade games which took me back to the 80s (shh…don’t tell anyone) and I loved the concept of the food carts.

It’s pretty cool to have parts of Chicago culture incorporated at the mini golf course.

What a great new addition to CHI City!  Until next time
