Won’t You Come Have a Drink at The Dive?

Check out The Dive, the latest pop-up bar at the hotel


AUGUST 2017 – Who doesn’t love a dive bar? Even better, who doesn’t love a bar called The Dive that is anything but a dive bar? Set inside the former pool at the original Chicago Athletic Association, The Dive is the latest in the hotel’s “Mini-Bar” pop up series, following the success of Cherry Circle Yacht Club and The Backroom.

The Dive debuts Aug. 5 during Lollapalooza and will feature nightly programming each weekend. Running Fridays and Saturdays, 5-10PMish, through Aug. 26, you can come to simply hang and get well-made drinks and play Cards Against Humanity and other games — or you can participate in fun activities and live music. Opening weekend is curated by Audiotree & LHST, which will bring in She’s Crafty, Chicago’s all-female Beastie Boys tribute followed on Aug. 6 by DJ Dan Maloney, who will spin vinyl and turn out an impromptu dance bash.

The following weekends will feature Big Dummy Bingo; Seinfeld Trivia; DJs Indiana Waterfalls; Karaoke Dreams with Rory Lake; a solar eclipse takeover celebration; Rosanne trivia, a petting zoo of sorts, magic and so so so much more fun we can’t even contain ourselves! And of course, we’ll have plenty of beverages at the bar for you to enjoy — so mark your calendars and be sure to come on over all August.
