Chicago Trivia Nights & Locations – Your Guide to Trivia in Chicago

Chicago Trivia Guide Bar & Restaurants 7 Days a Week

I have a soft spot for live trivia. It’s something that my brother and I try to do on a weekly basis- sometimes as teammates, sometimes foes to see who has to buy the round. With busy schedules, it doesn’t always line up on the same day every week. Fortunately, every night in Chicago trivia seems to be popping off somewhere. Tuesday and Wednesday are definitely the most competitive nights of the week though.
Typically, trivia in Chicago begins at 8-8:30pm– with a couple cases of 7:30 and 9pm.
I highly suggest calling whichever Chicago trivia location first to verify time and if they are still having it that particular night. Sometimes trivia can be cancelled for special events and whatnot. I know, makes me sad as well.

    I agree that trivia is a really fun and even beneficial thing to do when you’ve got some free time. I recently went to one of these with a friend of mine and I was surprised by how much fun I had. Now that I’m hooked, I would love to develop a tradition like you and your brother. Thank you for all of the helpful information!
