Chicago's Saved By The Max Makes a Splash

Fans can’t get enough of the new “Saved By The Bell” pop-up diner in Chicago, called Saved By The Max. The restaurant is so popular they’ve recently extended their operations though the end of the year and are already 100 percent booked through October.

The replica sets and kitschy entrees (guests can try the “AC Sliders” or “The Mac & Cheese” for dinner) are a dream come true for the millions of millennials who grew up with the show.

“The second you walk in the Wicker Park spot, you’re at Kelly’s locker,” wrote TimeOut Chicago. “Go down the hallway and you’re smack dab in the middle of the Bayside High hangout, the Max. You can’t help but giggle as you enter the space, decked out with retro tables, vinyl booths and that telltale quirky door. Songs by Zack Attack and Hot Sundae play in the background, and neon, glittery posters remind you that trivia is Tuesday.”

Saved By The Max does has one major upgrade from the original TV show — alcohol. Their drink menu includes an “I’m So Excited” (Absolut vodka, Red Bull Yellow, maraschino liqueur and lemon juice) and a “Jessie’s Joan of Arc,” with Beefeater gin, Lillet Blanc, Carpano vermouth and orange.

The pop-up has also hosted a few special events but none have had fans talking as much as the recent Brunch with Mr. Belding. Tickets to the July 17 brunch sold out in a matter of hours!
