Our friends at The House Theatre of Chicago have brought back their award-winning theatrical escape room The Last Defender on a permanent basis, and are opening a new room set in two stranded spacecraft called Nova to Lodestar. These escape rooms require a separate ticket from your reservation and last 90 minutes. Tickets available here.
Yes! Please call (224) 208-5346 to book our “dinner and a show” package. The escape rooms last 90 minutes, so you can also book your table before or after.
Yes! We have private rooms available for reservation and we also have a variety of options for your parties and private events in our main space. Give us a call or text at (224) 208-5346 and a real person will talk to you about it. Groups of up to 16 can also buy-out escape rooms or book a custom game time through The House Theatre of Chicago.
Nope. You can play a game if you want, or just come in for food and drinks.

If you are running late, please give us a call at (872) 310-3999. Once you’ve paid for a reservation, the table is yours for two hours. Unfortunately, if you are late to your reservation, your time can’t be extended past those two hours.
Children are welcome, but any child over two years old must have a seat reserved. Please keep in mind that this is a working restaurant and for safety reasons we request that children stay seated at their table. And just a heads up: we love kids, but there is no kids menu available.
Good luck. We are steps away from the Western Blue Line stop, as well as Milwaukee, Armitage, and Western busses.
Nope. Come as you are.
Reservations usually become available about 4-6 weeks in advance.
Yes. If the night you want to book is sold out, an option to be placed on a waitlist is available on Tock.

As a general rule, we don’t allow outside beverages. But if you have a special case please give us a call to discuss.
We have a library of over 300 games but if that’s not enough, you’re welcome to bring your own.
