Squid Game in Chicago: Replay Lincoln Park Invites You to Join the Game

We’ve already come too far to end this now. Replay Lincoln Park, Chicago’s favorite pop-up bar at 2833 N. Sheffield, is back again with the announcement of their latest pop-up installment, Squid Arcade. If you’ve enjoyed watching the heart-jerking Korean show that stormed Netflix, then, it’s time to experience Squid Game in Chicago at Replay Lincoln Park’s latest installment!

We’re still recovering from the Slasher Museum, and Replay is ready to take us down a new rabbit hole. You guessed it right! Their latest pop-up installment is Squid Game themed!

The games will run through Sunday, November 28, as this Lincoln Park bar transforms its gaming areas into a Squid Game inspired haven (or hell) with childhood inspired tabletop games throughout, weekly karaoke, along with K-Pop DJ guests during their weekly DJ sets, weekly Squid Game inspired competitions, themed cocktails and food menu, a Squid Game costume celebration, and a marble-guessing game where participants can win $583855.00 WON! This event and all of the games are free, with no reservations, tickets, or tokens required.


During this limited time pop-up, there will be themed events inspired by the South Korean drama series that include themed karaoke, weekly competitions like Dalgona Cooking Cutting, Red Light/Green Light, and Marbles, where participants have the opportunity to guess how many marbles are in Replay’s Pig Jar, with the winner winning $583855.00 WON, or $500 in cash.

Patrons will enjoy DJ sets on Thursday through Saturday with guest K-Pop DJs throughout and a Squid Game costume celebration on November 13 where fans have the opportunity to reuse their costumes for one more night. Fans will also have the opportunity to sip on featured cocktails named Dalgona, Watch You Temper(ed), They were stones…, The Squid Game, VIP as well as Red Light and Green Light Shots. A themed food menu will also be available.
