    We had a great time here! The magicians were funny and very entertaining. There were two magicians during the main show and if you have premium seats you can see an additional show which I feel was worth it. You are entertained from the time you enter until you leave. Before the show, there are magicians who do card tricks while you wait for the show to begin. The venue was filled with nostalgic pictures and was really a nice size so that everyone was able to see up close. The audience interaction adds humor to the show. I would definitely recommend stopping here if you’re in Chicago.

    Great venue and vibe. Just a cool place to grab a beer and a bite. They sponsor lots of activities. If I lived in Chicago, I'll check them out.

    If you're looking for live jazz music, this is the place to be. It's never crowded even when it's full, the acoustics are great they have wonderful cocktails and it's not expensive. We've been going often since they opened. We have never been disappointed.

    Great customer service, staff was nice & friendly. Bowling was fun however they need new bowling balls and pool tables. Had the buffalo wings, they were small & not the best quality.
    Pricey but Happy Hour is optional.

    Haymarket is a pub on W. Randolph Street that we recently stopped by while waiting for our table at Au Cheval across the street to become available. They have a good sized indoor seating area as well as a few tables near the bar. Several tellies behind the bar showing sports games.

    Drink list includes a good selection of handcraft beers. We enjoyed a porter and blond that both pretty good, easy to enjoy while watching a bit of baseball and basketball on the evening. Would be happy to pop back in for another round if in the area if in the area again.

    My wife and I took 15 and 10 y.o. to Io’s Comedy Sportz’s family -friendly show. (Other programs are more adult-friendly.) We loved it. Our kids loved it. It was so impressive to see these gifted actors transferring comic energy to the audience. Impossible to describe but just very funny improv. Highly recommend.

    I haven’t been here since pre-pandemic times. And it was great to be back.
    I love this tiki bar. My hobby is visiting tiki bars all over North America and the Caribbean.
    Elias served up some great tiki drinks!!!
    We also had the steak skewers, and they were delicious.
    They have a great little gift shop, and I bought a few souvenir lapel/hat pins.
    This club is off the beaten path, but a must visit when in Chicago!
    Happy Tiki Tiki…
    Enjoy.

    Came for a child's birthday party and couldn't believe the prices were so high for both the bowling alley and arcade. Kids had fun but probably won't come back except to spend rest of money left on swipe card for the arcade.

    Andrea was amazing server. Super sweet, a joy to have on our layover. She looked out for us flight attendants and really made the experience great. Def recommend the pasta 10/10 and her hospital was definitely a 10/10 so if Andrea is working you will be taken well care of no problem!

    A fun, unique speakeasy. It was a bit pricey but worth the experience. They have different specialty drinks every night, which are chosen by tarot cards. They have pop up performances about every 30 minutes. We saw two female, burlesque dancers, and one male burlesque dancer, and one guitar player with funny songs. It is definitely a 21+ club. Definitely make a reservation in advance or you may be waiting a while. some of the drinks were very good. The others were not so good but it’s fun to try new things. We did not eat the food, but had the Nutella ice cream sandwich dessert which was very good. Overall I would go back, it was fun.

    This was our first visit to Moody Tongue and we were very impressed. Part of the appeal was that they offer a beer pairing in which beer is paired with many very complex and subtle dishes. We are used to wine pairings but a beer pairing was worth a try. The dining room has a dark, more utilitarian ambiance which suits the theme of the restaurant. One thing that worried me was that neither my wife nor I like very hoppy beers and those are currently the rage. I figured we'd be giving the beer steward a tough job but it turned out that no one of the beers was hoppy. They were sour or fruity etc. and we were really impressed by how well they paired with the food and how well we liked all of them. All of the courses were delicious, complex, and quite different from all of the others. There is true artistry going on here! The only issue we had is that sometimes the next course of both food and wine would come before we had finished the beer we had for the previous course(s). The server(s) should communicate with the kitchen a bit more in case customers are slower to finish a particular glass. There is also a sizable amount of beer consumed with the tasting! I wouldn't recommend having any other drinks shortly before the dinner.

    The hubby and I decided to escape reality and checked into theWit for some getaway time. With our food and beverage credit as Hilton Honors gold members, we thought, "Hey, let's hit up the ROOF!" Now, being the classy hotel guests we are, we expected some top-notch concierge action to help with the reservation. But alas, no such luck.
    We checked in on a Friday and were told a reservation is encouraged as it's about to turn into a nightclub after 9 pm. Luckily, we got there around 7:30 pm to find a sea of empty tables. I wonder why the reservation?

    We ordered up some pizza, a few drinks, and because we're feeling wild, a couple of desserts. Service wasn't the fastest given the lack of customers. It was strange to have everything all came together at the same time. Pizza was good and the matcha thing was so subtle that I didn't taste any. The music was louder than your grandma's hearing aid on full blast. Our waitress was a gem, but we had to read her lips to figure out what was happening.

    Come 9:15 pm, we made our grand exit, only to watch the party animals come in. Suddenly, there was a bouncer at the door, and the vibe shifts from chill dinner to full-blown party mode. Electric, chaotic, and totally fun. Cheers to spontaneous night.

    A fantastic fun find. Younger me, that played some of those games on release, will be very angry at older me for this: the music could be a couple decibels lower - it was just at a level that made conversation more of an effort that it should've been. Good selection of beer. The hurricane fries are either the best invention ever or the weirdest (nori flakes on potato is a new one for me).... not sure. Will probably have to try them again ;-).
