From 1901-1926, prizefighting was banned in Chicago. Amateur boxing matches continued to be held however and the Game Room at Chicago Athletic Association was a featured venue
For a raucous good time in an Old Chicago-style atmosphere, stoke the competitive flames of your next team-building or social event with fun and games at our downtown tavern.
Originally the billiards room of the old Association, Game Room is reborn as a casual playground tribute to our clubby past for a new era of competitive smackdowns.
Sporting a fresh and multifarious nightlife experience on the Association’s second floor, a cocktail culture paired with classic suds and grub, plays exceptionally well with the gamesmanship you’ll find on the built-in bocce bay, billiard, shuffleboard, chess and checkers tables.
