Come Play With Us!

Waterlemon's indoor play space is unlike any other in the Chicagoland area. Styled for children under 5-years-old, it is intimate, sweet, and full of stimulating play zones + toys. This is a space your child will love playing in for years to come.

Want to get a little work done while they play? Bring in your laptop! We offer free WIFI and a variety of coffee drinks including cappuccinos, espressos and lattes. And with no blindspots from the cafe, you'll be able to keep a watchful eye on them while you work. Win win.
