All of Chicago’s major sports teams have multiple top VIP exclusive suites, and below we’ve made a list of our five favorites.
Budweiser Bleacher Suite at Wrigley Field
When you think of great views at historic Wrigley Field, you probably think of sitting on top of the apartments across Waveland in left or out where the party is above the outfield. However, less well-known (and a happy medium between both those seats) is the Budweiser Bleacher Suite.
Situated in the batter’s eye just above the center field wall, this climate-controlled suite provides
a one-of-a-kind view with unlimited food and beverages from a private bar, HD TVs, and high-
and low-top tables that can seat you and up to 100 of your pals comfortably.
Heineken Second Star Club at TOYOTA Park
Out in the ‘burbs in Bridgeview you’ll find a world-class sporting experience that’s still extremely wallet-friendly at TOYOTA Park, home of Major League Soccer’s Chicago Fire. Only about 10 years old, there’s not a bad siteline in this 20,000-seat soccer-specific park, but one view that might be a little better than the rest is from inside the Heineken Second Star Club luxury suite.
Located at midfield, high-rolling Fire supporters will enjoy seats modeled after those in sports
cars, an exclusive VIP food and drink menus that are constantly rotating, a state of the art A/V
system, and of course an unbeatable view of the action on the pitch.
Vidanta Resorts Theater Boxes in the United Center
Fans with the right connections and/or the right amount of spare change in their pocket enjoy Blackhawks and Bulls games from the Vidanta Resorts Theater Boxes in the United Center. Located on the east side of the arena, these premium luxury suites sit you just 28 rows from the court or ice, and just feet from two private bars and all-you-can eat cuisine from the Chef’s Table.
The theatre-style boxes are leased yearly by contract. Although there is currently a waiting list,
signing on to a multi-year deal grants you tickets to all Blackhawks and Bulls games as well as
to other special events such as concerts and the Big Ten Conference Tournament.
Assurance Club at Wrigley Field
Wrigley Field has always been known as the “The Friendly Confines”, but the luxury Assurance Club that sits down the third-base line takes that nickname a large step further. With access available in season ticket sets of 2, 4, and 6, the Assurance Club is an indoor-outdoor paradise for all corporate Cubbie fans.
Concierges will bring you just about anything you desire from the suite’s private top-shelf bar
and catering service as you sit in climate-controlled leather seats and watch the Cubs
resurgence to baseball relevance. And for those early or late season games where the lake
effect weather can still make things a bit nippy, you’ll have the luxury of heated lamps keeping
Zurich Skyline Suite at Soldier Field
Despite being one of the smaller NFL stadiums, the Bears’ Soldier Field still offers some immense VIP suite experiences for those that are privy enough to access its exclusive Zurich Skyline Suite. An experience in itself, the suite is over 7,500 square feet of flat screen TVs and complimentary food and beverage from the suite’s upscale buffet and carving stations.
Like any good outdoor suite in Chicago, the Zurich is climate-controlled but also has open-air
windows that can let in the sun during those warmer September home games. Your rear
especially won’t be cold later in the season, as every Zurich suite seat is extra-wide and comes
with its own drink holders. Access to these $9,300 per seat tickets comes when you sign a five-
year contract deal (another $5,000 per account) and will have you greeted by a Bears alumni
member every game.
