Mission Control Arcade Bar
Where to Grab a Drink in Chicago Right Now
Rejoice—Uptown has a new arcade bar. The long-running trend refuses to die, and instead is making its way north with this unapologetically fun space located just across from the Morse Red Line stop. Packed with nostalgic games and a space theme, the bar is something of a neighborhood comeback from the owner of the now-defunct Uptown Arcade, which closed last year. There’s also regular events, from VHS movie nights to pop-up markets, so grab a barstool (or post up at your favorite pinball machine) and get cozy.
