    Dear fellow ET members,

    I'm travelling to Chicago to celebrate New Years and i was wondering if anybody could recommend any tourist attractions/nightclubs?

    I'll be arriving on the 30th and staying till the 2nd.

    Please let me know

    Thank you in advance.


    Don Corleone: Do you spend time with your family? Good. Because a man that doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.

    Chicago's more of a "bar" town than Clubland.

    Where are u staying?

    Agree with Pabst, not a ton of clubs and I generally stay out of those places so can't help you there. For bars I would recommend: McFadden's on State and Division, PJ Clarkes on the same street, Tavern on Rush if you feel like dressing up and paying a little too much for whatever you get (but unbelievable women, many enhanced by the fine art of plastic surgery). If you want younger women (under 30) I would go to Lincoln Park or Wrigleyville and check out places like: Duffys, Grand Central, John Barleycorn. If you want pure insanity go no further than every single bar located on Division Street between Dearborn and State. Have fun.

    You're just due west from Navy Pier. That place defines touristy. It's worth checking out except in this weather I'd be cabbing anything longer than a few blocks.:)
  6. here's a few - don't know your age range - and all located within a 5 minute cab ride or walk from your hotel.

    Harry's Velvet Room
    Pops for Champagne
    Redhead Piano Bar
    Sound Bar
    Chicago Martini Lounge
    Underground Wonder Bar
    Hard Drive
    Buddy Guy's Legends
    Funky Buddha Lounge
    The Buzz CLub
    Leg Room
    Baja Beach Club
    Chromium Night Club


    and there are 100s more -

    You're giving away your age. 50's and hanging out in the Viagra triangle.....:)

    I would definitely make sure I spent a day checking out the floor of the merc or the cbot if you have not already done that.

    For me that was a career altering experience. (at the time)
  9. not really - some of the ones I mentioned cater to younger crowds.
