Planning a bachelor or batchelorette party? Burlesque can be a great way to add some naughty class to a rowdy pre-nuptial celebration. You have a couple of options when incorporating burlesque into your festivities.
Every weekend there are anywhere from 3 to 6 burlesque shows happening in Chicago. Thematically they cover cabaret, classic, neo-burlesque, goth, queer, opera, nerd, variety subjects and almost everything in between. You can look at our monthly burlesque calendar
to determine the dates and times of upcoming shows. Be sure to consider the interests of your bachelor or batchelorette when choosing a show. Most shows will feature a host for the evening, 6-10 female performers who dance while stripping down to pasties and panties and a few variety acts. Many shows and theaters offer discounts for large groups and some even offer special packages for bachelor parties.
The Kiss Kiss Cabaret offers a discounted party package where revelers can enjoy the show and a drink for $15 per person. The Kiss Kiss Cabaret performs a burlesque variety show every Friday night at 11 PM at the Greenhouse Theater located at 2257 N Lincoln Ave in Chicago. Party packages are only available in advance. Call the box office at 773-404-7336 to book your party.
