Bar of the Week: Headquarters Beercade

Headquarters-BeercadeLooking for a cool bar to call home? Well You’re in for a treat with this weeks bar of the week. Headquarters is located at 950 W. Wolfram and just blocks from the brown line stop.

A good friend of mine came across Headquarters a few months back and decided that blessing this place with a guy’s night out was a must. Unlike Dave & Busters,  Headquarters has more of a old school arcade feel to it. After walking in, I felt as if I’d just went trough a time warp back to the 90’s. there are about 30 televisions perfectly placed around the bar. All of which were playing reruns of WWF Summer Slam! IMG_0286By the time that the excitement started to subside I realized that all of the arcade games were free! Yes, this means endless amounts of Pac-Man, Contra, and Street Fighters just to name a few. There were about five bartenders on duty, two servers walking around taking drink orders, and a very short wait at the bar. One of the first things that stood out to me after looking over the menu was the beer selection. Headquarters    beer list  features a large amount of premium beers, which I found to be amazing because trying new beers is something that I love doing. My friends and I spent about four hours trying all types of beer, playing games, and watching WWF Summer Slam before deciding that it was time to call it a night.  Headquarters is the type of bar that you’ll go into and lose track of time, meet new friends, and relive some of those childhood memory’s. Since that night, I’ve returned or three separate occasions and the place just keeps getting better and better each time.

Why Go: All Games are free, Great beer selection, Friendly bartenders
