7 boozy museum pop-ups & events in Chicago this September

Chicago is a bit of a pop-up mecca, with The Office, Harry Potter and Stranger Things being only a few of the see-and-be-seen themes on the city’s nightlife radar recently. In September, though, some of the city’s hottest booze-centric happenings are exuding a rather intellectual vibe, as time-honored, world-renowned museums join forces with speakeasies, cocktail joints and musicians to create limited-run experiences for all those partiers out there with an insatiable, uncontainable sense of curiosity.
