With nostalgia-including video games and enough craft beer on tap for even the pickiest drinkers, Chicago's Emporium Arcade Bar is the ultimate destination for some old-fashioned fun. Available games ranging run the gamut from Mortal Kombat to NBA Jam, meaning there is sure to be something for everyone.

Emporium Arcade Bar is a Chicago-based chain of bars with locations in Wicker Park and Logan Square. Each venue is outfitted with a 20-foot HD projection screen, dozens of old-school arcade games and a fully-stocked bar. For those who are looking to do more than indulge in some old-school gameplay, the bars also host DJs, live music events and private parties. Patrons can even bring in their own food to fuel their game-filled nights.

For those attending Trend Hunter’s Chicago innovation conference who are looking for a way to better understand the millennial obsession with nostalgia, Emporium Arcade Bar is the perfect spot.
