Stopped here during a girls night out, my friends and I age from 23-21 the crowd here was much older than us, however it was a fun atmosphere, we had the Howlin Punch (86 oz) which was great! Wish we would've been able to find a table to at least sit at to enjoy the bowl so we didn't have... More

Howl at the Moon Chicago has a great vibe. We had a lot of fun on one of our nights out during a girls weekend to Chicago. Great music! The only thing keeping me back from giving it 5 stars is that there are ALWAYS people up on stage dancing. You could never fully see the performances of the musicians.

My husband and I like to visit dueling pianos when we're in Las Vegas, but haven't tried any of the places when in Chicago so this time we decided to add it to our list. Howl at the Moon was a fun time, the performers are very talented and entertaining, however it's not true dueling pianos as most of the... More

It was too crowded in here and I had to worm my way to the front to get a drink. We felt like not only were the songs that were being played old but they weren't any of the good ones (in our opinion). I realize people request songs so perhaps we were just there for a stretch of time... More

There is a $10 cover charge but you are able to come and go after that. Drinks are well priced, good food as well. Fun to drinl out of a bucket and... More

Went out for a night on the town. We went to this howl at the moon several years back, it was packed and music was not great. Thursday night was awesome. There were back up singers, a violin, guitar...a band with the pianos. It was vusy, but not packed. We sang, danced and met people at the tables near us.... More

Super night at Howl at the Moon - songs we thought they might not know where played with ease! Such a different concept to what we'd seen before, we had a blast.

Had a blast at Howl at the Moon! There was a bit of a line up at 11pm but it's worth the wait. I think the cover charge was $10. You get in for free if it's your birthday. (My birthday was at midnight and I still had to pay.) really one more hour? shheesh. The music was great. They... More
