Wat je gaat doen

Join us for a historic Chicago pub crawl with an educational twist! You’ll explore Chicago’s entertainment history and learn about prohibition, jazz, theater, vices, and social clubs, all while enjoying drinks and appetizers.

Guests interact with historic photos and videos on shared iPads and visit historic buildings for three drink stops. We don’t walk far on our evening walking tour, giving us more time to engage with Chicago history and look at architecture. The limited walking distance on the tour gives us time to enjoy our appetizers and choice of wine or beer.

Tour groups see magnificent lobbies and really engage with some beautiful historic architecture. Many tour guests enjoy the social dynamic of this unique tour. Solo travelers often join the tour. Also as a great Chicago date idea, it can be a fun thing to do in Chicago with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Groups of friends make the tour into a cool weekend event as it’s more than a Chicago pub crawl – you’ll eat, drink, and learn about architecture, Prohibition-era history, and culture.

What a fun tour! It's a great mix of some history and architecture (but in a more fun and engaging way than a traditional tour) coupled with local drinks. The stops were far enough apart that we got to see points of interest things along the way but also close enough together that there was never a "are we there yet?" thought. Very laid back setting and a great way to see a different side of Chicago. Would highly recommend!

Overall, this is a great tour. Getting to eat and drink throughout on some of the stops while you hear history is great! The tour guide was great and told a lot of interesting stories that I don't know you would get anywhere else. I would highly recommend this experience!

Alex was amazing!! Super friendly, extremely knowledgeable and had an amazing sense of humor. His stories were relevant to the locations we were at and the weren’t boring. His quizzes, photos presentation and video presentation were amazing. I will definitely come back and do another tour with him!

The narrative nature of the tour made all of the interesting facts Alex told us blend into one evolving story as opposed to a series of disconnected facts. As far as pub crawls go my friends and I agreed it was one of the best we have ever experienced.
