Finally!!! A genuine bid whist group for those who love to play.

Converts Wanted.

Welcome to Chicago's largest and most consistent bid whist club.

Where newbies, pros and tournament players find a home to hone their skill and have fun with other like-minded adults while doing it. This is the grown up's table.

We are a "Grown 'n Sexy" bid whist club comprised of adults who want to play, relax, and enjoy each other's company in a safe setting. We have and welcome members from Northwest Indiana, Chicago's South Side, West Side, North Side, Southern Indiana, Southern Illinois, Milwaukee, Detroit and surrounding areas. We also welcome out-of-towners and players who travel but want to find a home when they visit the Chicagoland area.

We will host monthly events (sometimes more), house parties, annual tournaments, and impromptu get togethers just to keep it fun and exciting! 

We've even included some new twists on traditional bid and NOW offer some of the classics you love and grew up with including: Bridge, Pinochle, Dominoes, Chess, and (soon) Poker. Bring your boards.

Sorry kids, no Spades allowed. 

For non-Bid players who like the company of adults 35+, we offer evenings out (music, concerts, jazz), steppin and line dancing sets, upcoming day trips and themed cruises (ex. Soul Train Cruise). 

If you're a black professional (or any other) ready for more out of life, but want to avoid the club scene or partying with your kids and grandkids, this group is for you.

If you've never played, you're welcome to come and learn or just hang out for the fun. Sometimes the most fun you'll have is the family atmosphere, just sitting around the table relaxing with friends, observing the game, laughing, watching others play. 

Normally events will be hosted at a member's home, a good venue, or a private room, but will always include food, drinks, and lots of trash talking! Each event is lots of fun and a welcome relief from the work week.

Member suggestions and ideas are welcome and encouraged.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
