Dome/Bubble Hockey and Super Chexx in Chicago
Updated June 19, 2017
Super Chexx. Bubble Hockey. Dome Hockey. Table Hockey. Rod Hockey.
Whatever you call the fast-paced, vintage hockey game, it's pucking fabulous. Despite the volume of Blackhawks fans and Stanley Cups in Chicago, however, the availability of bubble hockey is sparse in Chicagoland.
Dugan's on Halsted in West Loop is a dog friendly bar with a bubble hockey table.
Kirkwood Bar and Grill has a Super Chexx game inside toward the front door:
In the Gold Coast hock it up at She-nanigans.
Sluggers in Wrigleyville has an old school dome hockey table as well as air hockey and a wide variety of other games (skeeball, batting cages...). The Anthem in Wicker Park is a great place to catch both a bubble hockey game and Chicago Blackhawks action. (**note: as of Monday, April 25th the table is under repair but will be back).
Arcade bars are a logical place to find a vintage Super Chexx table, but not every Chicago beercade has one. Emporium's Logan Square location has a dome hockey table, while the Wicker Park Emporium does not. Headquarters Beercade in River North has a dome hockey table for $1 per game (price may change).

Buying your own SuperChexx is expensive, but hockey lovers can enjoy a quick game at home with a penny hockey table:
