These guidelines were put in place to ensure that our restaurant is as safe as possible for our team and guests in regards to COVID-19. They are in accordance with the CDC, FDA, OSHA, State of Illinois, and City of Chicago rules and regulations to ensure we can continue to operate.

Hand Sanitizer. We will have spray hand sanitizer on each table, as well as no touch hand sanitizer stations in common areas.

Cleaning high touch areas. We have procedures in place to sanitize all high touch areas including door knobs, handles, railings, and the restrooms each hour as well as an extensive sanitization before and after each service. All guest seating, tables, and booths will be sanitized between each use and each game will be available to one group per evening and sanitized utilizing hydrogen peroxide based sanitizer and a UV light chamber. We will be using cleaning logs to ensure these cleaning practices are followed each day.

Employee requirements. All employees will partake in a wellness questionnaire before each shift including COVID-19 exposure and symptoms screening, contactless temperature screening, and an overall wellness check in. Employees will not be permitted in the building with any symptoms and will be required to meet all CDC guidelines to return to work safely. Every employee will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their shift and while on property in any manner. Additional PPE will be provided per the necessity of each position.
