About the event:

Back 2 The Video Store Speakeasy Experience

Time to go back… Back 2 The Video Store for a unique drinking experience inspired by the art of renting videos during the greatest throwback era.

You’ll enter this hidden Video Store Bar and transport back to a simpler time  - where Friday nights at the video store was an experience! From lava lamps to pog-playing stations & very memorable TV/Film scenes turned into photo moments, there is no shortage of things to blast you back in time!

Choose your movie-themed cocktails & libations of the night as you browse the video store shelves. All of the themed sections (Romance, Horror, Comedy) have been replaced with new sections such as “Cocktails, “Beer”, “Wine”, “Combos”, and the only difference here, is instead of pulling down a movie, now your selection off the wall, will be how you choose your drinks.  There’s no cooler way to spend the night with your friends.

With curated cocktails inspired by award-winning films, which will be your top pick? 

Each ticket includes a 90-minute reservation and a Y2K cocktail or mocktail. Additional drinks and food will be available for purchase on-site.

Throwback Movie Club

Throwback Movie Club returns with an EPIC list of classic films, on one of the best rooftops in Wicker Park.  Come kick back under the moon with specific movie-themed cocktail menus and smores. We encourage you to check the weather in advance and bring a blanket to stay warm!

Note: Throwback Movie Club is sold as a separate experience from General Admission Ticketing.
