Location: 1850 N. Damon, Chicago, Illinois 60647, USA
Lemming's Tavern at 1850 N. Damen in Chicago is a great place to play a few top-quality pins.
The bartender at Lemming's told me a pinball collector, Gavin Miller, owns the pins there. He also told me that different pins are rotated in every few months.
Both of the pins when I visited - AC/DC (premium) and Monster Bash - looked and played like new.
The AC/DC pin had a cash payout tournament going on.
Besides the top title pins, Lemming's has a great atmosphere for patrons who like the old style Chicago bars. The tavern was built in 1920 and has been kept as original as possible. Tin ceiling, brick wall interior, glass block windows, and a carved wood bar are some of the features of the tavern.
Lemming's is located in the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood, which is within reasonable walking distance of Emporium Arcade Bar. If you are planning a trip to Emporium Arcade Bar, a short trip over to Lemming's for more pins is something I recommend.
