Until nightclubs, "knowing someone on the inside" usually required unauthorized surgeries. Celebrate a safer set of insider ties with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get one VIP martini and wine crawl down Rush Street with "Sip Happens" from Nite Tours (a $49 value). A two-week advance booking is required.
Nite Tours' amicable guides bypass lines to hand-deliver partygoers to a variety of nightspots on the martini and wine crawl. All cover charges to the lounges and clubs along the trip are included in order to avoid midevening math sessions and cash-embezzling velvet ropes. Touring tipplers meet in Hotel Sofitel Chicago Water Tower at LeBar for "Sip Happens" registration, drink specials including a complimentary tasting, and an 8 p.m. outing, bound for up to four nearby venues. Ambling guests can indulge in a complimentary wine flight or small martini at Ditka's, Carmine's, and LuxBar, while nearby guides and mixologists answer questions and arbitrate arguments with the jukebox. Ditka's offers potential peeks at the famed coach, while Carmine's brims with sing-along piano joviality, and expertly crafted martinis fuel the forging of new friendships in the three-story Luxbar.
Knowledgeable guides lead the way with comedy, fun adult games, and scavenger hunts, and additional libations and comestibles are available for purchase along the tour. The evening of revelry concludes at Proof, a new Rush Street nightclub, where tour takers enjoy VIP access, paid cover, and dancing, though no tasting is available at this venue. Nite Tours' crawl offers merriment free of line standing, ideal for celebrating birthdays or acceptance to a clown-college safety school.
The spirited VIP hosts of Nite Tours introduce their partiers to a range of nightlife destinations in various city’s bustling districts. As participants amble from place to place, receiving discounted drinks or VIP access at lounges and nightclubs, their leaders help them augment the celebratory vibe of the evening with interactive games and scavenger hunts.
