The Club is a way of life. Though the way every member utilizes it may be different, it is what makes the Club so unique. The ability to make the Club your place for family, business, social gathering or personal relaxation separates the Union League Club of Chicago from every other location. And the range of events is second to none! While many clubs have 20 to 30 events per year, the Union League Club of Chicago holds 40 to 60 events per month (more than 500 events every year). For members, there is never a shortage of new Club experiences.

Family Events
Priceless memories become the norm when your family becomes part of the Club. The first photo with Santa Claus; the first dance at the Father/Daughter Dance; the first time trick-or-treating through the clubhouse – these are the moments that you and your children will never forget. This is where so many generations of families have grown up and consider it their home away from home.

Authors Group
More than 500 authors from all walks of life have come to the ULC to share their compelling stories. Members have the opportunity to meet and listen to political figures, corporate CEOs, athletes and media personalities.

This is the biggest party in Chicago featuring 5-star entertainment, delicious food and libations on six different floors.

Concert & Theater Group Outings
Need tickets to the hottest show in town? From rock to country to hip hop to the latest teen idol, the ULC secures tickets for the biggest concert acts touring in the Chicagoland area. When Broadway’s latest Tony Award-winning show plays in Chicago, members can be assured that the ULC will secure the best seats in the house.

Sports Events
A center court/center ice Club Level suite at the United Center; sixth-row scout seats and Diamond Suites at U.S. Cellular Field; and mezzanine suites and terrace reserved seats with private vendor service at Wrigley Field allow members and their guests to cheer on their favorite Chicago sports team in style.

Bourbon & Boxing Night
Each spring and fall, the Main Dining Room is transformed into the “main event” for Boxing Night. You won’t miss a minute of the action from your ringside seat, and the complimentary bourbon tasting, to go along with the grilled-to-perfection steak dinner, has become synonymous with the event.
