Happy Hour

Happy Hour is BACK in Illinois!

Starting July 23rd we are back to providing your after work drink specials! Why start the night off anywhere else?

Don't have a boat? We do! Ride the Shuttle to the Island!

Park your car in our 5 acres of free parking and grab a Shuttle Boat! They depart from the Port of Blarney (27843 W Grass Lake Rd Antioch,IL) for the island about every half an hour. The shuttle service roundtrip is $8 most days and a great way to get to the party!
