The Chicago Loop Bally is closed on Saturday and Sunday. However, members are allowed to use another Bally in the South Loop during the weekends.
The South Loop Bally is a bit more contemporary and cleaner than its sibling club. The place features similar space and equipment – although there is no security guard. And for some reason, the lobby store, located in a gated area behind the reception desk, includes a couch and comfy chair. Guess members need to rest and recline before selecting dietary supplements.
The locker room is slightly better too, with a less cramped design. Plus, the showers offer soap, shampoo and conditioner! But we don’t recommend lounging in the TV room, as many naked men (showered and pre-showered) have been seen sprawled across the couches.
Enjoy your workout.
