Neighbourhood: South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you happen to visit during football season, you may bump into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park is one of Chicago’s premier locations for green space and recreation with views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Take a stroll down memory lane in the historic Prairie District where you can enjoy views of old historic homes. Restaurants, theaters, and clubs are spread throughout the neighborhood along with a collection of burger joints along Michigan Avenue just across from the park.

Night out at Tommy Gun’s Speakeasy Garage!
Jan. 2020 • Couples
Awesome night out. You have to get through the Tommy-gun armed lookouts to get into the restaurant, then give the correct password. Great meal and awesome entertainment. We even got raided by the cops and had to pretend it was not a speakeasy!

Good Time for Adults and Appropriate for Kids

The minute we walked into the garage (KNOW THE PASSWORD!) it felt like we stepped into the year 1929. The gangster taking the password gave my grandsons, and another young man, a hard time. They loved it! Sonny waited on our table. He was friendly and hustled to get our orders, did an excellent job. The food was delicious. A salad or soup, choice of meat with a baked potato and green beans. My 11 year old grandson had the soup and salmon, said they were both really good. My 9 year old grandson, a picky eater, did not like the meat choices but ate all his green beans! The chicken Marsala was also very good. The show was entertaining with a mixture of dancing, singing, skits and audience participation. Very clever and funny! My grandsons loved that Sonny, our waiter, was in the show. There was no foul language and any suggestive comments or skits were not over the top. Went right over my grandsons heads. The next day I took my grandsons to the Chicago Historical Museum. After the fun experience at Tommy Guns they were able to much better relate to many of the displays. Made history come alive! Can’t wait to go with my husband!

I recommend it to everyone, who likes history and fun combined. It is a real touch of one of Chicago’s 20th last century prohibition time and you are getting submerged into real speak easy place with everything in it included. It is like a dream comes truth, excellent performances, great singing and dancing and delicious food.
Real Thompson gangster guns shooting and police chasing them with the audience involved. What a fun!

Great food & laughs
Dec. 2019 • Friends
I traveled from Canada with my mom, sister and aunt for a weekend in Chicago. We had heard about Tommy Gun's Garage being a great evening, booked tickets in advance and it didn't disappoint!!

The venue is easy to reach using transit (we used the subway and then walked a couple blocks). The entrance is very inconspicuous with a lighted door on a brick building (no flashy sign). As soon as you enter, you are greeted in true gangster form.

Our server was, Lefty, and he was fantastic making sure our drinks were filled, food was delicious and cracking us up with jokes galore. Note: do not eat before going!! The servings are large and filling!!

The show was entertaining and hilarious. The entertainers pull some people from the crowd to participate, but they are great at picking the 'right' people so you don't feel uncomfortable!!

If I visit Chicago again, I will be going back!

Our family of 4 went Thanksgiving weekend and started off the Christmas season with a wonderful experience. The show was exceptional, with many added Christmas tunes added in. The audience participation was hilarious. Service and food were perfect!

Classic show with excellent dinner options
Dec. 2019
We took my mother-in-law from Australia and she was delighted, as were we! The show was excellent and I had low expectations about the dinner, but was delighted at its quality! They welcome dress-up. I would certainly recommend this for a special occasion.
