Perfect Place for a Wedding or Shower!! – What an amazing place! We had a family bridal shower in their new Banquet Rooms. The place is HUGE!! The service was excellent! The staff was very friendly and even helped carry all the gifts to the cars. Everyone at the party was so delighted with the food that we are planning our next family gathering there. Best of Luck to them as they start with their new Banquet Rooms. We'll be back!!!
Best Place Ever!! – This is a Great Place to meet up with friends and family for dinner and drinks!!! Always has live bands and the food in awesome!! We will be returning and hope to get the same bartender who was very attentive to us.
RODENTS IN THE RESTAURANT – Around 12:15 January 29, 2010, my husband and daughter were having lunch at Bourbon Street. I was sitting at a table and saw to my left a mice walking the booth next to me going in and out of the seat cushion. I nudged my daughter and she said, "Is that a mice?" I didn't scream because sitting right next to us was a table of 8 elderly women and I didn't want to set the place off. I went to the register and spoke with a bald gentlemen, explained what I saw and said we were leaving. This man didn't apologize, ask me my name or anything. I'm sure he wanted me to just exit the place quietly like I did.....I have dined at Bourbon Street pleanty of times...however, my last time was Friday. If mice can come out at 12:00 noon, broad daylight, and a restaurant FULL of patrons....imagine what they do at night. EEEEEKKKKKKKK!!!!
Great for groups of friends; not a very romantic spot though... – This place is HUGE!! Just when you thought you'd seen the back wall...BAM!! there's more. There were two stages where live bands were playing two different genres, so that's an excellent draw. The staff is very accommodating and the overall atmosphere is lighthearted and fun.
The drinks don't taste watered down, but oo strong either. This may not be the best place to go if you're looking to get to know someone because the music is so loud. You're bound to make new friends while you're there so be open to "pop up" conversations.
There's ample parking, but be mindful that certain areas of the parking lot will tow your car if you park there BEFORE 10PM. If you like live music, good drinks and lots of people, then 115 Bourbon Street is for you!
Lame – Place is okay other than the dumb** bouncers. Very rude and think they are THE HULK! Get yourself another shot of steriods buddy........You want a good time...go Downtown, more expensive but worth it.
oh so overrated... – Bourbon Street is fine for a random night like once or twice a year, but on a regular basis - it's just about the most obnoxious place on earth. It caters to a very "local" clientele who, I'm convinced, don't realize there is about a thousand other options in the city of Chicago.
I find it hilarious that at some points you stand in line to get into this place. It's nothing special - an overcrowded sports bar, an overcrowded (lame) dance club, a "warehouse" for bands and an outdoor area. You have a lot of options but the overall crowd and vibe is nauseating and you spend the whole time walking in circles trying to get to a bar or find a table or some sad member of your group that you lost. "VIP" members act like they own the place (it's Bourbon Street, seriously, get over yourselves) and the bouncers are truly some of the ruddest, egomaniacal a**holes I've ever come into contact with.
Hop a train and head into the city if you want a real night out. Save Bourbon Street for a desperate situation.
VIOLENT BOUCNERS – If you go to this bar there's a good chance you will end up in the emergency room. The bouncers beat my son for wearing a hat in the club. They took him in the kicthen so no one could see what they were doing to him. Four steroid raging cowards held down and beat my son. He ended up in ER with two sprained arms, staples in his head, bruises and cuts all over his torso and a bruised eyeball from one of then putting his thumb in it for several minutes.
Ultimate Girls Night Out : Great for Ladies of All Ages. – A few weeks ago a group of us decided to experience what we heard was the best male strip show around. I had heard that the males were a piece of art and made the experience a memory to last a lifetime.
These men are not imature, these men are real and built and the experience, well let me just say "I can't wait to go back." They are deff babes that workout.
We had the best time, the 3 hours passed by very quickly and left alot of us, well, hot....
If you want to, you can have a private picture taken with them and that is my agenda for the next time we go.
Also, this is an all male scene. Except for the audience, there are no females. The men are there to serve you and perform.
A great place for an excellent experience. We are going again on May 9th.
I cant wait.
Good for you trendy folks. – I'll be honest, this is not my type of place. I'm into the smokey neighborhood bars, always up for a game of cricket..... so I'll try to be unbiased.
We went on a weekend, and parking was a pain. Valet was backed up, and although we were told not to park in the Dominick's lot, we did. So I would suggest getting there early to avoid the traffic jam.
Walking in, the bouncer's were polite and when asked, directed us to the sport's bar, which I enjoyed. Drinks were priced well, bartenders were courteous and quick. I cannot stress how big this place is, and i was surprised with the sport's section being as large as it was. I was happy to find some live music in this section, it was actually a really good time....
but then we took a walk and found ourselves in the "night club" section.
They had a band performing marky mark and the funky bunch songs (wtf?) with two dancers. Total throw back to the 90's, and NOBODY was enjoying themselves. We tried to leave there to check out the other dance section, but it was packed. Good music was being played there, but it was so hot people were coming out drenched.
All in all, I would recommend the sport's bar, not so much the dance club, unless you like house/mix/90's B96 music. I must say, however, it seemed the patrons of this bar were having a great time. It seemed pretty average to me, but oh well.
I wasn't there for the beer garden, but I've heard great things about that.
Thursday is the best night – Thursday is ladies night and the most crowded night. $2 Long Islands are great and get the job done. Better in the summer because of the outdoor bar. The nightclub part is not full of the typical trashy crowd, and plays decent music. Friday and Saturday nights are kind of dull unless something is going on. It lives up to everything you hear about it.
