The Cubs have so far failed to sign a dazzling free agent to help the team’s World Series chances this season, but there’s plenty of bright lights and fun to be had down the road from Wrigley Field thanks to a new acquisition along Clark Street. Lucky Strike Social is a video game arcade in Wrigleyville that further transforms the neighborhood that last year welcomed the Hotel Zachary across from the Friendly Confines. It brings much of the same type of fun its older siblings in Streeterville, Lucky Strike and FTW arcade.

This 30,000-square-foot space is spread out on two floors. There’s bowling, table tennis, and more than 100 video games. Once the scaffolds disappear, customers will also get unique views of Wrigley Field from the windows.

Food wise, there’s tons of french fry options, burgers, and wings. There’s also pizzas and salads. For drinks, there’s house cocktails, wine, and a standard draft beer list. Folks looking for all-inclusive party packages should look no further. Lucky Strike Social offers options.

Check out the space and food below. Lucky Strike Social opens at 5 p.m. on Friday.
