The Chicago Rope Social is a monthly event co-sponsored by Chicago Rope and Second City Kinbaku. It’s a community gathering where you can practice, meet new friends and play partners, and gain inspiration from others in the rope community. The Rope Social is open to all experience levels, and there’s no pressure to play. Feel free to watch, ask questions, or just socialize.
The studio will available for open play all night. If you wish to use the suspension frame, please check in with Chicago Rope Staff prior to doing so. We request all suspension scenes conclude by 11:30.
Bring rope, your own mat or blanket, if you have one, and your choice of food and non-alcoholic beverages. An admission discount is available if you bring food or drinks to share.
This event will be held in our Wicker Park venue, Outerspace Studios, directly above Volumes bookstore. The Damen blue line stop is very close to the studio. When you arrive, press the button for “Sun Studio” and you will be buzzed in. The studio is at the top of the stairs in the far back. The venue requests that shoes be removed at the top of the stairs prior to entering the studio.
Parking can be difficult in this neighborhood but often can be found on Milwaukee or on the streets surrounding the park. We recommend that those who are driving allow at least 15 minutes extra time to find parking.
Please note that Outerspace Studio is not wheelchair accessible. Entering the studio requires ascending a long flight of stairs.
