Parlay all day!
If you are like me - then a girl's night is definitely needed from time to time. Since Covid getting together with friends seemed to be pushed to the back burner. My friends and I would get together at least every other week (just to catch up). However, when the virus happened it would be every other month. Being a social person - it was difficult to cope with not being able to go out and experience all the fun places, food, and atmosphere Chicago had to offer.
Luckily, we all had the opportunity to get vaccinated and we finally got to go out! Parlay is probably one of my favorite places to visit. The versatility is unmatched with it's multiple levels of fun. If you're more of a sporty person who has a chiller vibe than the lower level is for you. Sip some cocktails, enjoy a bite to eat, and watch the games. However, if you like more of a club scene then the upstairs is definitely for you. My friend's and I were celebrating our friend Julie's birthday - and the entire atmosphere was perfect for that. We were gifted a bottle along with some refreshments to go with (pineapple juice, and cranberry juice).
The music is always poppin' with great jamming hits and fluorescent lights. The entire atmosphere is that perfect mix for a fun party. Now, lets get to the question on everyone's mind...was it Covid friendly? I can fully answer yes. Although we had our vaccines everyone (staff wise) also was fully vaccinated. In fact, they ask you for your vaccine card to confirm that you are as well. Everything was nicely sanitized and I completely felt safe which is important for everyone. I think the best part of the whole experience was that feeling of nostalgia. I remembered the times before Covid - when going out with friends wasn't such an oddity.
In the warmer months they also have a beautiful rooftop that I have frequented often. If you're a foodie and enjoy delicious bites and drinks then that will definitely be more your scene. All in all, if you're looking for a fun girl's night out location or you're traveling to Chicago, check out Parlay - you won't be disappointed!
Have a great Monday love bugs!
