The Game Room, Chicago Athletic Association Hotel
12 South Michigan Avenue

The Game Room is located just a short walk down South Michigan Avenue from the Hyatt. This original billiards room is reborn as a boisterous playground with a selection of classic games and a bar that pays homage to our clubby past for a new era of competitive smackdowns. A deep cocktail culture paired with classic suds and grub plays exceptionally well with the sportsmanship you’ll find on the built-in bocce bay, billiard, shuffleboard, chess and checkers tables. Game on!
