We have moved Best of Bump Club 2015 to a brand new incredible location:

The Swissotel
323 East Wacker Drive
Chicago, IL 60601

Parking

Valet parking is available at the hotel. When you valet your vehicle at the Swissotel, discounted vouchers of $32 will be available at the Bump Club registration desk in Monte Rosa. In order to receive the discounted rate of $32, vouchers must be present. This rate is good for the duration of the entire event.

The Swissotel is conveniently located just steps from Chicago’s Magnificent Mile and many of the CTA bus and el lines (the closest is State and Lake.)
There is also some limited metered parking on Stetson and the surrounding streets, but please note a meter will be about $6.50 per hour, more than the validated cost for the whole day. You can also download SPOTHERO, an awesome FREE app which will help you secure a parking spot in a garage near the event the day of for a discounted rate. (Some garages around the event location are as low as $14 for four to six hours.) UberX and Lyft are other great options for getting to the Loop without hassle on Saturday!
