All you need to know about our reopening
We have new seating setups that allow you to sit close to your partner, family and flatmates, but away from other groups.
For the best seats and the best deal, come with a group of four at a VIB table (Very Important Butt) and the fourth person is free!
A couple can choose a comfy couch, a VIB table in the front or a side table. In the balcony, seats are side by side, separated from strangers with safety shields.
In addition, we have created two special tables of four. These ‘safe social seats’ are designed with a clear plastic shield to bisect the table. Two partners or flatmates can sit on one side of the table while two non-quarantine friends sit on the other side. You don’t share drinks or food, but you do share good times. Sit close, talk and laugh. It’s a wonderful, safe, and social experience.
Come early and come hungry! We’re setting up a pop-up kitchen and serving delicious snacks and dinners made with local ingredients. Enjoy a proper dinner or something yummy to eat with your drinks! Everything is fresh and made to order and will delight meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Food must be pre-ordered in advance (up to 48 hours before showtime) and not on the night. That way we can have the right ingredients on hand and no food waste. You will taste the difference!
Check our full dinners and fresh snack platters.
You don’t have to drink at Boom Chicago, but we certainly make it easy! Have a seat at your table, and let us serve you all night. We have buckets of specialty beers, served in ice buckets and tap beer from our partner Bud plus a variety of craft beer.Would you rather have a cocktail? Our bartenders can scratch that itch as well. Boom Chicago’s wine list comes from Grape District and is a notch better than you might expect. Even our house wine is fantastic. Of course we also have soft drinks, juices, and proper coffees and teas.
Good Safe Design
When we open extra toilets during intermission, we may snake the queue through the real backstage. Say hi to the actors, but don’t touch any costumes. Not due to the virus, but because that would be totally uncool.
Service with a Smile
We wash our hands all the time. Staff who want extra protection will wear face shields instead of masks. This way you can see our mouths and hear us better. If we blow you a kiss, you will see it. So be charming!
What about the Actors?
The actors live together so they can be close on stage. That means they just need to focus on being funny. Win win! Our musicians and technicians live separately so they maintain social distance from the cast.
Please follow our rules, direction flows and make an extra effort to stay 1,5m away from strangers. Of course cough into your elbow. Of course wash and sanitize your hands. And of course do not come out if you or anyone in your house is sick. We will be happy to reschedule your tickets.
