Fulton Market was once an industrial meat-packing area, but it is now being transformed into a night-life entertainment destination. That transformation is still underway.

The barcade is a very short walk from the CTA’s Green and Pink Morgan station.

It was a nice bright, airy location, though the daylight did not interfere with the game play.
