Ready to host your first casino party in Chicago, but still looking for a venue? With over 30 years of experience hosting casino events in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs – we have been to countless venues! In Chicago, we’ve seen clients look for three distinct types of venues – The Awesome Rooftop, The Trendy Loft Space and The Classic Chicago Venue. With that in mind, I’ve listed my venue picks that fit each of those categories.

VERTIGO SKY LOUNGE LOUNGE

The Vertigo Sky Lounge in the Dana Hotel is a gorgeous space for corporate events and private parties. We’ve held a number of casino parties in the sky lounge, and it’s always a smash. The space has an all year around indoor/outdoor rooftop space for 20 to 300. It has ambiance, style, a great staff and stunning views of the city.

ROOM 1520

Room 1520 has all the character you want out of an old Chicago factory – high ceilings, polished cement floors, exposed brick and an open floor plan. Bonus? There’s plenty of parking in this West Loop event space! At our last casino event at Room 1520, guests loved entering to an artisan staircase and Italian crystal chandelier.

SIGNATURE ROOM ON THE 95TH FLOOR

If you’re looking for a classic Chicago event space to host your casino party – look no further. The Signature Room on the 95th Floor of the Willis Tower is stunning, old school Chicago. The views stretch as far as Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin – and they’re dirty martini is perfect. We love hosting events here just to watch the sunlight slowly fade out and the bright city lights come alive.

5 Casino Party Favor Ideas for Your Next Event

Choosing your casino party favors requires careful thought. Your ultimate goal at the end of the night is to be left with ZERO party favors. You want your casino party favors to be so amazing that no one, not even the stumbling guy at table five, leaves it behind.

Here are my top two rules to follow when choosing your party favor:

  • Easy to Carry – Ideally fits in a purse or pocket

  • Useful – Please no miniature decorative mirror boxes filled with candy.

DICE

A pair of dice is a super easy casino party favor. They are a little expensive, but fun, easy to carry and useful. Any real gamer knows how important it is to stock up on dice. You can get these plain or embossed with a logo or company name – try Branders.com.

BLACK & RED POPCORN

Edible favors are by far the best – as long as you bag (or box) it in something simple. Remember, no miniature decorative mirrored boxes! A local popcorn shop, maybe even Garrett’s, can make you a custom black and red popcorn mix for your event in small plastic bags with a custom label. Or, if it’s a smaller party, you could try making this Black Widow Popcorn with Red M&M’s. How good does that look? Use small plastic bags to store it and seal it with a custom sticker.

MINI BOTTLES OF CHAMPAGNE

Your casino party guests would love little mini bottles of Champagne. While it borders on the “easy-to-carry” rule, I’ve certainly seen men fit these into their pockets before. There is also a high likelihood that these mini bottles will be opened before the event ends. Use a simple black ribbon to tie on a branded label for nice extra touch. Maybe even a business card?

PLAYING CARDS

Yes. The most straight forward casino party favor of them all. Playing cards are easy to carry, useful and directly related to the event theme. These are great party favor gifts – but do not get the clear plastic playing cards. No one likes to actually play a game of cards with them. Take it a step further and get the card box branded with your company name or event logo.

Disclaimer: Be sure to check with your hosting venue about outside alcohol and food – you might have to purchase it through them.
