Rack Em Up has been in business for almost 30 years, and surprisingly enough, it is the only genuine bar in the Buffalo Grove area. Not to be confused with a bar and restaurant, Rack Em Up has ensured their guests return by offering them an authentic sports bar familiarity. Throughout the years, pool tables have been replaced and equipment has been updated, but the atmosphere and experience have both remained unchanged. The full-service bar, multiple forms of entertainment, sports memorabilia, and overall welcoming qualities make Rack Em Up a home away from home.
The south end of Rack Em Up is mainly occupied by their 16 pool tables, many of which have been played on by professional players, as demonstrated by the trophies displayed throughout the establishment. Guests can also engage in some friendly competition on the dart boards located on the far south wall. Inhabiting the northern half of the venue is Rack Em Up’s full-service bar, numerous TVs, and two Golden Tees machines. Guests can also enjoy bar-top game machines that include puzzles, action, and card games. Located in a remote corner of the bar area are five state of the art video slot terminals, offering gamers a chance to win some cash! And near the restrooms, guests can play their favorite tunes on the jukebox and even jump into the past to use Rack Em Up’s retro payphone!
Out front of Rack Em Up is their sizeable gated patio, complete with tables and wicker chairs, a large flat-screen TV, and speakers, allowing guests to catch their favorite game while enjoying the weather. Although Rack Em Up doesn’t offer a full menu, they offer their guests the fundamental beer pairings – pizza and hot dogs. So whether you’re looking to join a league, play a friendly game of pool, try your luck on some slots, or kick back and enjoy a cold brew with the game, Rack Em Up has you covered!
