CHICAGO — What’s old is new again in Wicker Park.

Taking residence inside a nearly 5,000 square feet former garment manufacturing building, the Big Mini Putt Club is Chicago’s first dedicated indoor 9-hole mini-golf course — with a bar to boot.

The course was designed and built by its owners to be challenging yet fun for all skill levels.

Nick Jenkins is a co-owner. 

“It’s a novel concept,” he said. “The crux of the story is that people want to do something while they’re drinking. They don’t want to just sit around and watch TV anymore”

Big Mini prides themselves in honoring the simpler times of growing up in the 80s and 90s. They wanted to create a vibe that puts you back in those summer nights challenging your family, friends, and/or foes to a couple rounds of mini golf.  And you can top off the night an old school slushie.
