There are some establishments that just scream birthday party, like the trampoline palaces, laser tag joints and go-kart tracks. But those are all flung far outside of the city, so if you’re looking for a birthday party place in Chicago, where do you go? The city has plenty to offer, don’t worry. Here are a few of the top places around Chicago for a truly awesome birthday party.
Brunch Around a Ping Pong Table
Birthday brunch is a time-honored tradition. But you have a birthday every year, so don’t fall into a boring brunch routine! AceBounce is changing the way brunch is done by offering Bottomless Brunch on weekends. It’s more of an event than a typical sit-down brunch, with rolling carts serving dim sum style dishes directly to the tables, staff coming around to top up bottomless mimosas and a DIY Bloody Mary bar. Games Gurus are on hand to inspire the brunch crowd with hilarious Ping Pong games that are as original and tasty as the food and drink. AceBounce offers Bottomless Brunch every Saturday and Sunday, from 12 - 2pm.
Burlesque is back and this subterranean entertainment space in Chicago’s River North neighborhood heralds a high minded and sophisticated approach to the sultry cabaret theme. There are several rooms and each space can have a different theme on display on any given night — live jazz music, burlesque revues, comedy or variety shows can all happen down there. Not in to a big do for your b-day? Then you can always chill in the Library, a cozy side room with a whiskey bar, padded leather seating and mood lighting.
