Along with these installs, there will be a “Light Times Mug Club” available for guests to participate in. Guests may choose to purchase a custom Don’t Fret ceramic mug to drink out of while they are in the establishment. With a mug club “membership” guests will receive a discount on drinks every time they bring their mug into the bar.
 
The sounds of The Light Times Club will fill the room from a custom curated (& Don’t Fret designed) vintage jukebox. The jukebox will feature 50 albums chosen by Don’t Fret & the Emporium Popups team & 50 additional albums curated on a weekly basis beginning January 22 by some of Chicago’s brightest musicians.
