You Can Play Board Games At These Chicago Bars

Stack of Board Games

It’s not the same as playing at home!  While board games can be great fun at home, playing while out and about provides an entirely different experience.  Below you will find a comprehensive list of bars with board games in Chicago, from life size Jenga to Monopoly.  You can refer to the map below for their exact locations.  May the dice be ever in your favor!

If we missed one, or if one of these establishments has stopped offering board games, please let us know and we will update our list.  We split the list up into 3 groups based on location.
