Club Arcada 1920s Speakeasy
Our group went on a Wednesday night to see Adam Sean "The Great Boutelli" and Fred Zimmerman "The Mentalist" a show at Club Arcada - it was awesome! I highly suggest going! Wednesday night they have wine bottles at half price, and a few specialty drinks and appetizers also available at half price on Wednesday nights -plus the show! Great time!
The Sunday Italian dinner is absolutely great, however, the only problem is that there seems to be some confusion when you come at a particular busy time with reservations. Having said that, Ron Onesti, who actually serves dinners in his restaurant makes up for this confusion with his excellent service.
Had an awesome first visit except for ventilation, the place gets hot and stuffy extremely quickly as soon as people start dancing. A couple $30 window fans would be the best investment you could ever make. Besides that ,,, A1, had a great time !!
Generally awesome. Biggest issue was how ear-piercingly loud the music was. Like, ow. Decor was great. Service super friendly. Drinks a bit on the sweet side, but not enough to complain strongly about.
Will definitely come back.
Had a great time. Wish there was a larger variety of food to pick from.
We had a tremendous time. The atmosphere was incredibly cool. The service was remarkable!!
It was an amazing evening. My mom loved it along with my sisters and lady friend. Ann Calloway-Hampton sat with us for a bit after the show and talked. Your staff was amazing, especially the young blonde flapper. She’s a very considerate and hard working girl. Kutmr waifer was a good time too!
Fun, 1920's speakeasy format. Selected menu of small plates and full bar. Food good with reasonable prices. A fun place to hear live music.
Excellent service,Great Atmoshere,Highly Recommended. We look forward to Visiting Again.A+A+A++!!!!!!!++!! THANK YOU ARCADA
The food was really good, but there were only 2 entrees, salmon or filet. Very limited menu but again, it tasted very yummy! The atmosphere was really cute. Nice looking at all the vintage items.
Staff is wonderful! Great place to catch a show!
seen rosie and the rivets, they are awesome, love the speakeasy!!!!!
Went there to see a show. Have been to several times before. Food is not only very good but also of great value!
The menu is limited but that’s not a bad thing - what they do they do exceptionally well. The food was outstanding! Ambiance was superb, really a fun place. I can’t say enough it was great.
Great experience with all the antiques and the 1920s motif. We had the small plates which were very tasty and our server Dan Haas did a great job. We went on a Thursday evening when there were no shows and it was quiet which was a good time to go this time since we had my elderly parents with us. I think they enjoyed the trip back in time. We definitely want to return for dinner and show next time with friends and we would also like to return for the big Ron Onesti Italian dinner they have on Sunday. We look forward to doing both.

This venue is great to take visitors from out of town. Very authentic decor - just fun. The food and drinks are a bit pricey but we were there on Thursday and there were deep discounts on wine and some of the food. The food was very good - portions are small. Definitely would recommend!
One of our favorite restaurants in the western suburbs. Always great service and menu selections. Combined with a concert downstairs - a perfect evening!
Just a fun, different place! Not your run of the mill restaurant! Excellent service! Would highly recommend it! Way to go Ron!
Ron Onesti is such a wonderful host and so creative! The entire evening was fabulous. A must-see and experience before and after an enjoyable concert.
The experience was amazing. We went on a Wednesday night with Magicians. The two magicians we watched we're funny and entertaining. I would definitely recommend to friends and family. Service was great as well.
We have seen Magic acts and even though they were all good , The TRUE LIGHT OF THE EVENING IS The announcer and magic of Adam. He is So personable to young children and none OF it is fake. He is an awesome person who should become a Main act as well. He's Definately a TREASURE. Appreciate HIM.
This was our first time at the Arcada Speakeasy for Frank Sinatra Sunday Dinner. The music was great and the food was just like Mom would make. Very Good Italian Food! We had a fun time, met other people and got up to dance with the music. I would recommend a night at the Arcada Speakeasy!
Birthday celebration. The restaurant provides birthday cakes at a good price. The cake was delicious and the entertainment was great.
Food was good, but drink prices were crazy! Small glass of bourbon was $16.
Also was very cold in there! My wife wore her coat while we ate!
The service was wonderful!! The food was hot and tasty!! I would dine before a concert there always!! I loved the wait staff in costume. The slider trio is a must!!
First time eating in the Charlie Chaplin room which was very quiet and unfortunately a bit cold. However, that didn't diminish the experience. The food remained hot despite the cold and the waitress was outstanding. She was very attentive, quick and friendly. We enjoyed our meal and experience yet once again.
Such frwat ambience. We had a great time enjoying the live music and fun atmosphere!
It is worth going to see and experience.
The art and furnishings are fun making it unique.
Food was good and so was the friendly service.
The food was very good. But it took a full 45 minutes from the time we ordered until we got our meal. Since we were going to a show downstairs, that was going to start in less than half an hour, we felt the need to rush through our meal so we could get to our seats. That took a lot away from our experience. Our waiter seemed very out of place, not comfortable in his job.
We loved the atmosphere and costumes! It was perfect for our pre concert dinner. Food was delicious
Really a convenient restaurant for attending a show at the Arcada. Nice atmosphere and, though a limited menu, the food is outstanding.
The food is good but expensive and they need to increase their menu offerings very few items to chose from
We had heard about this place the last time visited the venue for the Ted Nugent show, we thought then that the next time we visit we will have to try the Speakeasy. That time came when came to see America, It was great, we had a wonderful time and will definitely visit again in the near future.
Thanks Adam & Maribeth
A diamond in the rough find! Will definitely be returning.
We made the reservation for the show and it was outstanding. Both standup magicians were great. We were laughing and enjoying it emensily. The atmosphere was enticing with the 20’s setting. The food was very good, the wife enjoyed the flatbread and the waitresses we’re readily available. The seating in the room was excellent - not a bad seat in the house. We plan on bringing our friends in the future. Thank you and God bless.
The Speakeasy offers excellent food in a fun setting. We especially appreciated them working with us to delay our reservations after there was a change in the time of the show we saw at the Arcada. Friendly service. Informed servers. The best filet I've ever had. We highly recommend!
The decor is very nice, the prices are quite reasonable. The themed staff was courteous and efficient. The food was as good as any other Italian restaurant, which pleasantly surprised me. It is a great place for a pre or post-concert eaterie. Also, a very different place for a datenight restaurant. The 20's and 30's theme is nowdays a very rare delight. Murals are fantastic, and adds to the vibe of the main dining room.
This is the second time we've visited the Club Arcada Speakeasy and it won't be the last. This place is fantastic. It's a little pricier than I'd normally pay but the food is outstanding and the ambiance is wonderful...so I'll pay a little more than usual for that. Have to give props to the great staff as well; always friendly and, despite being a bit overwhelmed on this night, were pleasant and did a great job.
This place is a perfect way to start your night if you have tickets to an event at the Arcada Theater downstairs.
Fun atmosphere! Great food and drinks. Affordable priced specials. Staff was friendly. Really enjoyed our visit.
