The announcement follows the State of Illinois’ June 11th executive order allowing businesses to operate without mask mandates. Spybar isn’t the first venue to host a series of reopening events. Last weekend, house and techno club Smartbar welcomed dancers back with a series of 6 sold-out shows.

Chicago continues seeing signs of improvement, with COVID-19 positivity rates dropping down to 0.6% as of June 23rd. In an effort to vaccinate more residents, officials announced a series of incentives including one-day Lollapalooza passes and $50 GrubHub gift cards.
