Home of Chicago's best trivia night

It has been called the “Superbowl of Trivia Nights” and rightly so! Our pride and joy trivia night happens every Tuesday night at 8pm. We have partnered with some of the most loyal and generous sponsors to provide an over the top competition of wits with fantastic rewards. Giving away $1000 in cash prizes to our top 2 teams and over $1200 in raffle prizes and gift cards every week to those having an off night on the scorecards. No entry fee with a venue big enough to host more than 50 teams, it has to be the most competitive trivia in town. The rules are simple, the questions are not… 7 rounds of at least 7 questions, general trivia, pop culture, sports, and music you will run into for sure, for the rest of the rounds… anything goes! Pick whatever team name you like, and we keep it old fashioned, answers are written on scratch paper we provide that you turn in at the end of each round. Teams are limited up to 8 players max, and every participant in here gets a raffle ticket. Win or lose, there is plenty of booze with regular and rotating beer pitcher specials!!The seating is competitive, we normally fill up around 7:15pm, and encourage all players to try and arrive by then!

We have more regular weekly participating trivia teams than any other trivia in Chicago. So in the summer of 2013 we decided to take trivia to an entire new level hosting the first annual STATE Trivia Masters. We invited 40+ of our regular teams to compete in the hardest trivia night we have ever conducted. Part game show part trivia it was a competition that was second to none in complexity. It was such a hit we adopted the PGA tour concept of hosting 4 majors each year.

The Kiwi Cup- A March Madness Style head to head 64 team battle to first place over the span of 6 weeks

The Pair’s Pear- Matched up with another team these combined group scores will have to outweigh the competition

Trivia Masters- The most coveted major title of them all, separates the elite from the rest of the group.  

Trivia Night Seating Policy:
Typically we encourage all guests to arrive between 7pm and 7:15pm for the best opportunity for seating. In order to accommodate as many teams and players as possible, for teams that anticipate having 5 or more players, a minimum of 5 players must be present in order to be seated (excluding sponsor’s booths). Once any member of your group has been seated they will not be moved for the duration of trivia, so if you are expecting 7 people, we hope you will avoid telling us you are only going to have 4, because unfortunately the table you get sat at is it for the entire night, and we only have a select number of extra chairs. For customers who arrive before their 5 players arrive we invite you to talk to the hosts when you walk in and then wait at the bar and have a bite if you are starving! Trivia won’t be starting until 8pm! We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause customers in advanced, we have a lot of fun with trivia and we want to share it with as many people as possible, this is best practice in order to do so!
