Building the Barcade of the Future



We’ll open with cans exclusively from local distributors. We believe in local, from computer animators to relationships with our vendors, we want Chicago to be the birthplace of the best VR.


Local Brews

What’s in the can? We’re working to pair with the best of Chicago’s “Malt Row” to bring you VR drink experiences full of all the storied flavors of our local, legendary Ravenswood brewers.
