Chicago Bachelor Party Ideas
If you are in Chicago from out-of-state, you will probably want to spend the morning exploring the city, its beaches and other attractions. If you do not sleep in, then here are some of the things you can do during the day:
Hit the city’s downtown beaches and get started with the drinking at the beach bars Check out the golf courses on Lake Michigan, like the Sydney Marovitz. Golf is a pretty popular daytime activity for bachelor Chicago parties. Check out the bars and restaurants on the 606, which is a recreation trail along an abandoned rail line. Take a tourist boat out and enjoy drinks on-board if the weather’s fine. Alternatively, you could rent your own floating Tiki bar or pontoon boat. Jump from a plane and skydive. Try it. The city has indoor and outdoor skydiving that will make your party truly adrenaline-pumping special.
After a day well spent, get ready to hit the Chicago nightlife. For some, this may start with a fantastic dinner. A steak dinner at one of the city’s excellent steakhouses, including the classic Gibson’s, RPM Steak, Ditka’s and STK.
Chicago also offers beer tours to not miss, if you are looking for something to do in the early evening, before you hit the nightclubs. The city has some of the best breweries in this part of the country. Have you heard of Goose Island?
Next, move on to bar-hopping at one of the world’s best bar towns. The Viagra Triangle is known for its fun and wild bars, which you will enjoy if you prefer casual, messy places that are not upscale. Get really drunk and hit the eighties and nineties basement at the Hangge Upee or enjoy the piano bar at Zebra Lounge. The Lodge is a dive bar and a city classic.
For more upscale bar-hopping, bars in the popular River North area are for you. This area has everything from sports bars like Public House and Theory, to El Hefe, Three Dots and a Dash, clubs like The Underground and Studio Paris etc.
There are plenty of other nightlife hubs in the city, including Wicker Park (once a hipster area), Logan Square (the current hipster neighborhood) and Wrigleyville (young and messy).
You might also want to check out some famous Chicago Blues at the city’s top blues clubs, including Blue Chicago and Kingston Mines.
Getting Around in Style
To get around in style, you will need a limo or a party bus. We can get you in touch with some of the finest limo and party bus companies in the city. You can have the limo pick your party up at your hotel and take you around to a fancy restaurant or lounge. If you prefer to party while you travel, hire a party bus and bar-hopping will be that much more fun.
VIP Hosted Entry and Bottle Service
If you are looking for nightclubs with the best VIP hosted entry and VIP bottle service, we can help you find suitable venues and make reservations. We can get you into some fine nightclubs with fantastic light setups, DJs who know what they are doing, and nice-looking people to have fun with.
As we’ve mentioned earlier, across the city, Chicago’s nightclubs receive a variety of clientele. From bankers nursing their bottles to hipsters out for a casual night out to young people out for loud music and crazy dancing. Most dance clubs fill up later in the night. Many clubs with table and bottle service bring in fantastic DJs who keep the crowd on their feet all night. If the music is particularly important to your bachelor party group, we will show you where to go.
Chicago’s Gentleman’s Clubs
Sometime during the night you will want to visit Chicago’s Gentleman’s Clubs. Did you know that the Windy City was once known as the one of America’s wickedest places? Chicago strip clubs may not match Las Vegas these days, but there are many top spots to check out lovely dancing ladies topless (such as Pink Monkey) or nude (at Polekatz, VIP’s Gold Club, Ocean, Scores, and Club O
Chicago’s strip clubs receive large groups of bachelors in Chicago, out celebrating their friends’ last few days of singlehood with beautiful, little ladies. There are not that many strip clubs in the city, but unlike Las Vegas, there are a couple where “nude” and ‘full-liquor’ go together, no problem. Except that at the VIP Gentleman’s Club pasties are involved.
Many of the city’s handful of gentleman’s clubs will have all the bases covered for your Chicago bachelor’s party, including limo, large troupes of girls (some clubs have over a hundred), stage shows and a standard closing time of 4-5 am.
At some Vegas-style clubs like the huge PoleKatz, you can enjoy any of the 150+ ladies give you and your friends a fully-nude lap dance. Psst. You can also enjoy full-contact lap dances here.
Another well-known Chicago ‘showroom’ as the club calls itself is the Admiral Theater, with its themed events in an old building that was once a theater. The only downside is you have got to have your fill of booze before you get there.
