Deposits are due at the time of booking. All final payments must be made 10 days before the event date. Deposits and refunds are non-refundable and in most cases paid out to your selected venues or transportation.
Individual payments make it easy so that the host does not need to collect from each person attending. However, if someone makes a payment but cannot attend, we are unable to refund.

What a great time to dress up!
Dress codes at Chicago clubs and Chicago bars vary from location to location, but MUST be followed. Doormen have the final say as to who is let in. If they feel someone is underdressed they may turn your group away and there is nothing we can do. Here are some helpful VIP Bachelorette tips to obey the dress codes:
Forget the flip flops, those are for the beach. But you can do nice flats if heels aren’t your thing. Think of how you would dress up not how you would go grocery shopping.
Ripped jeans are for shopping days.
Stay away from hats; you will have to take them off anyway. You can always figure out some fun ways to style your hair!
Come on ladies, it’s a big night! Think heels, dresses, stylish pants and blouses. Don’t forget all the photos that will be taken! If in doubt, look up the venue(s) online to get a detailed list of dress codes.
Nightclubs and Getting In
Patience is a virtue!
Door men at clubs do not have an easy job. They are dealing with fake ids, intoxicated guests and people screaming at them. Do not begin yelling, demanding or talking all at once. This will only make your wait longer and possibly get you turned away. The door person has the best interest of the club in mind. Additionally, some clubs will only allow people in who fit their brand. We cannot guarantee you will get in if your group does not follow the guidelines or fit their standards.
The person who booked the party with VIP Bachelorette selected the package and venue. We only make recommendations based on the guest of honors preference. It is your group’s responsibility to decide if your group will fit the nightclubs standards.
Remember, the door hosts have final say as to who they allow entry to. If anyone in your group is rude, angry, or even over served, they can deny entry to your whole group. If for any reason you are turned away at the door, lead the girls to the next bar or club and shrug it off. Your VIP Host will assist you in putting your group on the list at another venue. Remember, the reservations are under the guest of honor’s name.
What is the difference between a Male Revue Show and The Naughty Cabaret
Naughty Little Cabaret- This is an on stage performance with dancers, Divas, comedy etc. No touching, no going out to the audience etc. It has it’s sexy moments but only on stage and more performance based.
Bad Boys Live – Formerly Dreamboys- Think Chippendales or Magic Mike. The guys are strippers and they perform on stage but them go out into the crowd and interact. Some women love it, some don’t. the guys won’t be aggressive if the girl says no but it does get a bit crazy.
