Escape to an air-conditioned jungle this July.
When Replay Lincoln Park launches a new pop-up you know it means business. After the success of previous pop-ups which saw the beloved bar transform into the likes of Moe’s Tavern, Shrek’s Swamp, and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the beloved vintage video games bar is back with another of its pop-culture-themed pop-ups to send fans into overdrive. This time around it has transformed its arcade bar at 2833 N. Sheffield Avenue into none other than a Jurassic Park-themed jungle hideout as people flock to movie theaters to see the conclusion of the Jurassic Park saga.
Jurassic Bar, as it is officially called, offers fans “a safari through Isla Nublar with all-new photo-ops, drinks, and events.” According to the Replay Lincoln Park social media channels, there is an array of custom-built vehicles, Jurassic decorations, and deadly prehistoric predators as well as a menu of tantalizingly tasty themed cocktails inspired by the movie series.
The air-conditioned jungle is also providing the perfect summer escape with ice-cold beer, tiki-inspired beverages, and an assortment of free arcade machines including Jurassic Park Pinball.
Open through July 31st, there are live DJs from 9 pm Wednesdays Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays while regular Jurassic Park trivia nights are announced on Replay’s Instagram.
The Jurassic Bar cocktail menu is available every day until 2 am, from 5 pm Monday through Thursday, from 3 pm on Fridays, and from noon on weekends.
No cover, no tickets, and no reservations are required to enter the Jurassic Bar but cosplay and costumes are encouraged!
