Peach!, an event series that celebrates all LGBTQ+ women & femme family, presents the 2018 4-event series…'The Elements' ( Air, Water, Earth, & Fire ). Join us as we explore the resilient spirit, beauty, and power of our queer community through our interpretation of the elements. Now it's time to get wet with "Water"! We are swimming over to Whiskey Business rooftop to end Pride Month with a moist, sexy day party. You already know to expect dripping art installations curated by the talented Chris Tuttle, some music to slide to, and something tasty to sip on. Dress Code? Come through Drip Drip. Interpret that how you'd like. Brace yourself to get sweaty from a B2B set from the talented DJ Gemini Jones & DJ Cut Cuz! As always, this wavy rooftop party will be hosted by your main peaches Hannah Kate, Morgan Higgins, and Bre Berry.
Peach partners with Tito's Handmade Vodka for the event on Saturday, June 30 from noon to 4 p.m.CT at Whiskey Business ( Private Rooftop ) 1367 N. Milwaukee Avenue Chicago.
Trying to brunch? We got you! Order from our cute curated food menu before diving into day drinking. Full bar available, but curated cocktails will be available all day to keep you "hydrated" and dancing! We recommend sipping on some Tito's Handmade Vodka though and here's why…with EACH Tito's Handmade Vodka drink purchased $5 will be DONATED to charity ( up to $1,000! )! Yes…drinking Tito's vodka equals a stack to charity.
All 21+ are welcome.
This event celebrates queer women and all femme bodies, but Peach encourages all friends, family, allies and identities to enjoy our welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment
**Please note the Whiskey Business rooftop is not wheelchair accessible due to a recent elevator breakdown. We apologize for the inconvenience**
Restrooms are gender neutral.
