1950s Nightlife in the Loop Tour

What to expect
  • Take a tour of some of Chicago’s hippest 1950’s-esque nightlife spots
  • Visit the theater district and learn what constituted “going out” back in the day
  • Walk to the Berghoff and the Palmer House Hotel, two fine Windy City attractions
  • Shmooze in luxury in the lobby of one of the nicest hotels in the country
Ah, the 1950’s. The era of cozy suburban homes, white picket fences, train commuting. Like something out of a John Cheever story.

Come find out more about this pivotal era in American history with a thoroughly entertaining tour of Chicago’s 1950s nightlife. You’ll start out in the theater district, exploring what going out in Chicago meant in the 50s. Then it’s off to 2 gems of the Windy City -- the Berghoff, with its quirky history and excellent beer, and the great Palmer House Hotel.

You’ll hang out in the swanky lobby -- enjoying classic drinks, appetizers, and dessert -- all while learning the fascinating story of the hotel and its role in the city.

This tour might just make you wish you had a time machine, so you could STAY in the 50s. At least until the 50s become the 60s… Then you can go back to your iPhones and Kindles.

Note: Please inform vendor of any mobility concerns.
