ThNB Chicago Distilling Co. Season 1: The Ball Rolling


We're getting the ball rolling back at Chicago Distilling Company in 2019. It's the perfect league to get your bocce career rolling if you're a rookie (or rookie adjacent). And it's the perfect night to get the ball rolling on that experimental second team you've been considering or to revive the team you've left behind. 

Chicago Distilling really rolls the red carpet out for our social, mildly competitive bocce league experience. The room captures the American Bocce Community vibes just right. Two courts sit side-by-side and there's plenty of front row seating to take in the action. They drop the price on a wide array of perfectly crafted highball cocktails because they love us. CDCo. recently paired with Don Chema & 2ndKitchen to bring food to you quick and easily, a huge bonus for those that have rolled there before and left a little woozier than expected. 

With our Packabocce courts and high grade AstroTurf setup, the balls roll as true as any venue in Chicago. It's long been a place where future bocce stars and heavy hitters get their start. It may be the location, it may be the quality of the roll and room, it may be the drinks, but it's definitely something you should experience for yourself. Email if you need help filling a 4-player team or have any other questions.
