They had an improv comedy show called "The Future is Here" going on for which we booked tickets in advance. We reached about an hour in advance and they, for some reason, had free access to real physical pinball machines. It was super duper fun. With a fully equipped bar, you can order your drinks and hang around anywhere. Once the doors opened we went inside and we were upgraded to better seats, where they also served us drinks (on order, of course!). The seating, the sound, the stage and everything about attending a standup comedy session at Boom Chicago was ace!! Highly Recommended.
