LINCOLN PARK — Replay Lincoln Park is taking guests back in time to the ’90s with its latest pop-up.

The Nick Arcade pop-up, which opened Friday, transforms the 9,000-square-foot arcade bar at 2833 N. Sheffield Ave. into a ’90s paradise inspired by throwback Nickelodeon shows like “Rugrats,” “Hey Arnold!,” “Doug,” “Rocko’s Modern Life” and more.

Decorations include nods to the shows and decorative green slime, according to Replay. Fans can relive their childhood memories by taking pictures in the bar’s sets and ordering ’90s-themed cocktails, slime shots and lunchroom treats.

Replay’s ’90s nostalgia pop-up references throwback Nickelodeon shows like “Rocko’s Modern Life.”

“Our fans love opportunities that give them a chance to relive their childhood,” said owner Mark Kwiatkowski. “This one is especially for the millennials looking to get back and enjoy the city officially reopening.”

The Nick Arcade pop-up is for all ages until 7 p.m., when the bar transitions to allowing only people 21 or older.

Visits cost $20 per person, which covers a $20 drink tab and a 90-minute reservation for the space, according to Replay. Underage visitors will get a commemorative T-shirt instead of the drink credit.

All COVID-19 restrictions will be enforced, and guests who can prove they’ve been fully vaccinated are allowed to remove their masks.

Replay Lincoln Park is open 5 p.m.-2 a.m. Monday-Thursday, 3 p.m.-2 a.m. Fridays, noon-3 a.m. Saturdays and noon-2 a.m. Sundays.

More information and ticket reservations can be found on Replay Lincoln Park’s website.
