Best Esports Lounge in Chicago

What Are Esports? 

If you are new to the esports world, no worries! Esports are video games that are played in a highly competitive and organized environment. While video games have been around for decades now, esports are a more recent phenomenon. Esports allows fans all over the world to watch their favorite gamers play on TV or online on services like Twitch, or even live in person. The world of competitive video gaming is a fast-growing sport with millions of fans. 

Now, rather than simply sitting at home to play, esports lounges and arenas are opening across the country for fans to gather together to play and watch. Many gamers spend a lot of time at home inside, but esports lounges give these fans a place to gather and play amongst one another. (It’s sort of like gathering at a sports bar to watch your favorite team play on TV, except everyone gets to participate!) 

Our lounge is a wonderful place for groups of families and friends to come gather and play esports together. Or, it’s a safe place to drop off your kids to play while you enjoy a drink and a bite to eat at Station Grille, the fun new restaurant in Bedford Park, which is located conveniently inside our facility.
