Riot Fest is already known worldwide for having some of the most amazing lineups year after year, but now the festival is trying something new— a pop up restaurant.
Check out all the details of Riot Feast below!
Riot Feast will be taking the place of the beloved Saved by the Bell themed pop up restaurant Saved by the Max. Saved by the Max served thousands upon thousands of Bayside burgers to diehard Saved by the Bell fans for the past year, but will now be heading to Los Angeles.
But starting in July, Riot Fest will be teaming up with Saved by The Max’s creators Derek Berry, Zack Eastman and Steve Harris along with critically acclaimed executive chef Brian Fisher to bring the carnival/speakeasy themed Riot Feast to Chicago.
“I’ve always wanted to be a part of a restaurant, but time and life constraints made thatseem impossible,” says Riot Mike. “But, thanks to Derek, Zack and Steve’s vision, theyhave given us an opportunity to create something special. And we want to do nothingshort of wowing our fans with this experience.”
Opening night takes place July 8, with fans being able to buy both GA (communal dining) and VIP (reserved elevated tables) seating for this amazing experience starting this Friday June 9 here. Riot Feast will be open Wednesday through Sunday nights with seatings both at 6 and 8 PM. There will also be a special VIP seating at 10pm where the restaurant will transform into a carnival speakeasy.
“Saved by The Max was truly a passion project for us all,” says partner Zack Eastman.“It was very important for our next concept to mirror that same love. Collaborating with Mike and the Riot Fest team brews a perfect storm of the unique creativity and passionfound in both the music and food scenes here in Chicago, and we couldn’t be moreexcited to partner with them.”
