Elgin Nightlife

  • by rucaptivating Written Sep 21, 2011

    This is a comfy lounge that has fabulous martinis - too many to choose from, but the "Life is Good," "Guava," "Mangotini," "Citrus Burst," and "Blueberry Pomegranate" are favorites...hard to go wrong on this menu. Excellent place to bring a date on a slower night. They have DJ's on weekends after 10.

    Staff is friendly, owner is nice.

    Dress Code: business casual

    I always have fun at JB's Pub. The Karaoke is great because there's always a cheerful crowd. Come thirsty for fun, food and drink. Remember to call a cab if you're too drunk to drive.

    Dress Code: Wear whatever you'd like. Come after, durring or before work. No shirt, no shoes, no service.

    I went to Chicago on may 2nd 2010 to attend Melodic rock fest out in Elgin.

    It was hell to get there

    The transport in chicago was great the subway took me to a bus station then i took the bus out the train station.

    The train to elgin only ran every 2 hours on the weekends

    So i wait 1 hour 25 minutes untill my train arrived

    I arrived in Elgin & i had to find a taxi to take me to the Motel

    Once i arrived at my hotel i got changed & freshened up.

    I then started walking out the the venue in the city area. I was walking underneath freeways & through forests & side street to get there

    The gig was awesome but i couldnt seem to find a taxi. Untill i found a hotel shuttle for the hotel next door.

    The enxt day i got up 7am & got a taxi to the train station. the trains only run every 50 minutes so i missed my flight to buffalo

    fare is $5

    Metra has several daily services to Elgin from Chicago Union Station. It takes about 90 minutes with several suburban stops.
    Oneway fares are around 4.75 USD but there are weekend passes for 5.00 USD. Good all weekend for all metra lines.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
