DATE NIGHT HISTORIC WALKING BAR TOUR DETAILS
Our afternoon or evening walking tour stays mostly indoors, making it great for any kind of weather. This fun date night tour is specifically about Chicago’s entertainment history. In addition to learning how Chicagoans have had good times over history, our tour groups see magnificent lobbies, Gilded Age mansions, and Chicago’s underground layers. We even see a building that was an early speakeasy and jazz club. You’ll also hear about the infamous Curse of the Billy Goat over a bite of a “cheezborger.”
On this date night tour downtown, you and your special someone will be immersed in stories of the city’s history and you’ll enjoy drinks, snacks and a dessert. Drink package includes choice of wine or beer at three drink stops and server gratuities. Drinks stops are a one-of-a-kind burger joint slash dive bar, a bar in a lavish 19th-century mansion, and our third drink stop is in the exotic surrounds of an historic Michigan Avenue hotel.
This tour is more than a historic Chicago pub crawl – you’ll eat, drink, and learn about Chicago architecture, Prohibition-era history, and party culture on this educational walking tour. In addition to the tour guide’s stories, guests view historic photos and film on iPads. Plus, the convenient Mag Mile locale makes it easy to add on another romantic experience downtown for after your tour – like a ferris wheel ride or cocktails at the Signature Room.
Our date night walking tour goes well beyond a typical historic pub crawl, and this will be a particularly special event for Valentine’s Day!
