Review: Bait and Switch

  • From start to finish, my experience with VIP Chicago Parties was a disaster. All the “event coordinator” Emily wanted to do was have me pay for multiple packages or sell me a bunch of different “upgrades.” Eventually, I decided to go with a specific package called the “Taste of Chicago – Two Days of Fun.” I was ready to book, but I wanted to see whether we could change some of the bars so that we could visit more nightclubs. It seemed like a simple request considering that the company has a variety of different buses departing from the same bar. All we would have to do is jump on a different bus. Despite my repeated requests for a call back, it is only after I call for the third or fourth time that I finally get to talk in person to Emily. She indicates that not only is she not sure if we could go to different bars, but that the company was no longer working with the first bar on our itinerary. She tries to claim that the first stop was only part of the VIP pre-party, but it was clear on the itinerary that this was an actual stop on this itinerary because unlike the advertised "free" VIP party, we were supposed to get a (1) free Large Chicago Style Pizza for every 4 girls, and (2) free shots for the group. After I point out that her new itinerary would provide fewer bar stops (including one less free entry and round of free shots), she indicates that she will send me an e-mail with more information. Her email then indicates that the company is no longer offering this package and she states that we can pay basically the same price for a different package, still called "Taste of Chicago - Two Days of Fun" that includes significantly less, including missing the entire second day which was supposed to provide brunch, one bellini per person, and 2 dancers who would seat us, serve us and perform two songs. I responded that the company's response was not satisfactory, that being asked to pay significantly more for the same services felt like a bait and switch situation and asked that the company either honor the package advertised on the website or provide a substantially similar package for the same price. The CEO got involved at that stage. And things went from terrible to even more terrible. She claimed that the package had not been offered since October (which means that its had been advertised on their website for eight months even though it allegedly was no longer being offered and also contradicted her employee's claim that I had just missed it by a day or two). She then claimed that I was attempting to bully her into giving us a package that they don't have (my request was that the company either honor package organized and advertised by the company itself or provide a comparable package for a similar price). She then claimed that I was looking on the wrong website (which I accessed through her employee's e-mail link) and that only the packages on her 'Bachelorette" website were valid. Then she claimed that she was going to sue me for libel, slander and harassment (which, as an attorney, I was well aware were ridiculous threats). I would encourage people not to work with this company. Further, I would be interested in hearing if anyone else has had similar bait and switch experiences with this company. I would be interested to see if the package that I was looking at had actually been booked or if you had tried to book this package and received a similar response from the company. Further, I would be interested if there have been similar problems with groupons for their affiliated company Corporate Tailgate and Boar Rentals. False advertising and bait and switch tactics are illegal in Chicago. Please contact me at jennjin01@yahoo.com.

Review: Best Value for the Money, Best Party Planners

  • Favorite part of bachelorette party? The bachelorette was thrilled with her evening, and we couldn't have done a more cost-effective night out planning it ourselves. The transportation was so nice- they were always there right when they said they would be, and we met a lot of great people that night. I have already recommended this service to several friends planning events and to my Company's Director of Corporate Events. I don't know if you do Corporate Event Planning but if not, you really should. Whatever the case, expect a lot of phone calls coming your way from people that I know and those that I meet in the future.

Review: Best Bachelorette Party EVER!

  • Favorite part of bachelorette party? VIP Bachelorette is THE company to use to help plan your bachelorette party! Best value! Best service! Best treatment by the clubs that VIP Bachelorette set up for my party!!! Last weekend I attended and helped plan my girlfriend's bachelorette party weekend in Chicago. I had to plan the 'club night' of the weekend and found VIP Bachelorette. In addition to the amazing specials listed on VIP Bachelorette 's website, they customize parties for groups. For an extremely amazing price, VIP Bachelorette created a night out for all 7 of us ladies which included 3 top clubs (Excalibur, Sound Bar, and Spy Bar) with free cover, express front of line entry, a round of shots at Excalibur, a round of drinks at Spy Bar, and BOTTLE SERVICE at Sound Bar. The bottle service included a huge bottle of Moet Champagne, a fifth of Belvederre vodka, mixers, our own seating and waitress! Getting the bottle service at Sound Bar, in and of itself, was an amazing value for what we actually spent! All of the staff at the three clubs treated my party very well. Sound Bar's staff repeatedly checked on us throughout to make sure we were doing well. All of the girls kept on thanking me throughout the night for planning it out because they felt like rockstars!!! VIP Bachelorette made booking the party super easy...very organized...and customized the party to what I wanted for the bride! They even sent a compact itinerary with all clubs, details, contact info, etc to use the night of the party - really made my friend's bachelorette party memorable.
  • Location? Activities? Excalibur, Sound Bar, and Spy Bar, Downtown Chicago..... Party to remember!
  • On a scale of "G" to "XXX" how would you rate? Too hot to handle? I'd rate our night out as A+++ We all had a great time and I didn't have to do a thing that night except, ENJOY MY NIGHT OUT! Thanks again VIP, your company rocks.
  • Craziest bachelorette moment? Can't mention our craziest moment... but, it was worth every penny... can't wait to do it again.
