Chicago Nightlife

Even in the cold winter months, Chicago knows how to spice up your night. Years ago Chi-Town was legendary for its Prohibition speakeasies and lively jazz music. Today you can still find amazing live music across the city, as well as that old speakeasy feel, but now Chicago has a vibrant nightlife scene that stands on its own. Sports pubs get crowded in Wrigleyville after a game, cozy wine bars and lounges are easy to find in Wicker Park and the far North side, and swanky clubs dot the Loop for those looking to dress to impress. Get ready to be entertained.
