ROMP ROOM: FAST FACTS


SOCIAL OPTIONS ARE
LIMITED FOR DOG OWNERS

After a long day of work, many people want to kick back and relax with their friends over a nice cold drink at their favorite local bar.

For dog owners, though, there’s not only the commitment to head home to tend to their dogs’ needs, there’s also the desire to spend time with their pets.

In cities with harsh winters, the chances of finding a place for you and your pet to socialize together are nearly impossible many months out of the year.

In most urban areas, the best a pet owner can find are the typical dog day care facilities and a few dog-friendly bars where all dogs are required to be tied to the foot of a bar stool or table.

Wouldn’t it be nice if dog owners didn’t have to choose between their canine family members and social time with their friends? And wouldn’t it be nice to take advantage of a safe, climate-controlled dog park while enjoying a coffee or beer from a local company?


BRINGING FRIENDS AND THEIR
DOGS COMFORTABLY TOGETHER

Romp Room will provide Chicagoans with a premier, year-round space to socialize over drinks while their canine companions take advantage of indoor and outdoor, off-leash play features.


KEY FEATURES / HOW IT WORKS

Our simple, yet effective and versatile concept offers a combined indoor/outdoor entertainment venue for both humans and their canine companions.

All indoor and outdoor spaces will incorporate a variety of standard and custom-designed, safe play features for dogs in conjunction with various concessions and entertainment for their owners.

AMENITIES

  • Fully staffed bar with a vast selection of local and domestic beverages
  • Full-service coffee lounge with a walk-up, to-go window
  • Rotating local food trucks
  • Designated event space featuring a wide range of offerings including local music, games, trivia, televised events and gallery space for local artists to display their work

We will also be renting space to local raw dog food company, The Raw Butcher. This collaboration will provide an easily accessible option for customers to pick-up their dog's food or browse and purchase various treats at their convenience, whether they are visiting our facility or just wanting to swing by for a quick "grab & go".


TRACTION & ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Location Secured
We have found a conveniently located, 13,700 square-foot property with versatile features. It is a former auto repair shop/showroom with a large, gated yard and patio area. The indoor space provides an open and airy feel, with multiple large rooms and 22-foot high ceilings.

Customer Acceptance
Our online/social media presence is gaining very positive traction. We have gained more than 2,500 people actively following our account/progress in less than 3 months. We have a growing subscription list for our monthly email and every comment provided by interested parties has been full of positive and excited rhetoric with an almost impatient disposition for us to open.

Collaborations
We will be collaborating with local raw dog food and treats company, The Raw Butcher, and one of Chicago's most popular coffee roasters, Dark Matter Coffee, as our sole supplier of coffee products.
