Pink Monkey Overview: Topless Dancing in Chicago
There is no doubting that Pink Monkey is a popular venue and it has won several awards to prove it. They offer a decadent night out for men ‘on the town’ as well as a great location for birthday, bachelor and divorce parties.
On Saturday nights you can expect bachelorette parties as the club sometimes runs a male revue. In fact, the clientele is generally of mixed gender as plenty of couples attend the club together.
The venue has private booths, an open lounge seating arrangement and VIP areas.
The stages and podiums are well-lit and offer everyone a great view to enjoy the topless dancing and entertainment. The management wanted to offer a burlesque style show lounge with a hint of Geisha flare but the interior receives more reviews about its Vegas styling.
The venue is quite small with a maximum capacity of around 200 people but offers an intimate experience to enjoy the show. Seating is arranged more like a restaurant than a typical ‘seats at the front of the stage’ establishment.
The club management run regular events at the venue with one draw for clients being the complimentary limo service from the baseball stadium on game days. Clients who present their ticket stub also receive half price entry.
Patrons must be over the age of 21 to enter but the venue is a bring your own bottle establishment (one 750ml bottle per person). There is no bar service as they do not hold a liquor license and management do not allow beer on the premises. It is recommended that you buy your alcohol before you get to the venue as the closest liquor store is a bar which charges extortionate prices.
Overall, the Pink Monkey is a mellow gentleman’s club that offers the best nights at the weekends and can be a bit pricey.
