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 staying mostly indoors. On this tour, 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 historic Chicago pub crawl – you’ll eat, drink, and learn about architecture, Prohibition-era history, and culture. We’d like to say it’s a Speakeasy Tour or a Chicago Prohibition Tour, but truthfully very few bars in Chicago remaining today were ever speakeasies. We did find one stop on our tour that was a true speakeasy though! The Historic Chicago Bar Walking Tour is like a mix of a food tour, an architecture walking tour, and a mobile documentary film. Book your tour early as the historic Chicago pub crawl often sells out. It’s a unique Chicago thing to do! Walking Tour Includes: * Engaging tour guide commentary * Shared use of iPads with historic photos and video clips * Gift packets * Appetizers Walking Tour Does Not Include * Drinks and server gratuities. All guests must choose a beverage for the walking tour and bring cash to cover 2.5 servings of beer ($20), wine ($22), soda ($6) or water ($3). **NOTE** Maximum allowed number of tickets per customer is 8. For parties larger than 8, please contact us to request a private tour. Thank you. PARKING - If you are driving, Chicago Detours offers our guests a special discounted rate for parking at the Grant Park North Garage, accessible from Michigan Avenue at Madison Street. Rate is $15 ($38 value), valid up to 12 hours. Upon check-in for the tour, ask the tour guide for a voucher for the discounted rate.

ABOUT CHICAGO DETOURS
CONTACT

Our walking tours and bus tours of Chicago history and culture bring people to explore stories and places locals don't even know. We give tours of interior architecture, historic bars, jazz and blues, and Chicago neighborhoods. Chicago architecture, history and culture intrinsically connect on our walking tours and bus tours of Chicago. We are proud to be one of few Chicago tour companies with a solid five stars on both Yelp and TripAdvisor. Our passionate, knowledgeable tour guides go beyond trivia to get you thinking about our relation to cities, space, and buildings. We share ideas on how architecture affects us psychologically. We also take moments to simply indulge in the visual experience of architecture. Because of the cultural angle of our walking tours and bus tours, they are great for anyone from architecture experts to those new to Chicago architecture. All our tours use architecture to tell stories that reflect the human side of Chicago history. You will explore, learn and interact with multimedia, each other, and the city around us. We work with private groups, student groups and we also offer walking tours to the public six days a week. We hope you will join us on a Chicago architecture tour for an unforgettable cultural experience.
