By | Luxe Chicago, Luxe San Francisco, Luxe Team | No Comments

At Luxe, we strive to make parking your vehicle both convenient and affordable. Customers like you rave about our Door-to-Door Valet service, and we’re thrilled to introduce a new addition, Luxe Garages.

Starting today, open up the Luxe app and select one of our secure garages located throughout our service area. Simply drive to the garage and a Luxe Valet will meet you at the entrance and park your vehicle. There’s no wait and the cost is even more affordable. The best part is that you can mix and match your services, so you can drop off at a garage and then have your vehicle valeted to you on its return, or vice versa!

How it works

  • Open the Luxe app, and select the garage you would like to park at. Request before you leave or simply pull up to the garage and request upon arrival.
  • Drive to the garage, hand your keys to our Valet, and you’re on your way. Enjoy all the convenience of curbside service, at a lower price with no wait!
  • When you’re ready to pick up your vehicle, just request it right before you arrive at the garage. You can also choose to have your vehicle delivered back to you for only $8—select your pick-up time and location and our Valet will return it then.

How It Works:

  • Please clearly mark all non-perishable food donations and place in a box or bag.
  • Park with Luxe and select “Give Back with Luxe” from the “Add-Ons” menu.
  • Leave your donation in your car and a Luxe Valet will then pick up your donation and drop it off at the designated donation center in your city.

Are You Wondering What You Should Donate?

Well, what would YOU want to eat? Answering that question is a great way of picking a good selection of items to donate this Thanksgiving. Non-perishable food items are preferred, and there’s a high demand for these popular items:

  • Peanut butter
  • Canned beans
  • Canned chili
  • Canned soups and stews
  • Preserved fruits

  • Canned fish

Let’s make this Thanksgiving a happy, tasty one for everyone!

Things to Do in Chicago

By | Luxe Chicago, Travel | No Comments

Although the summer’s over, there’s still plenty of fun things to do in Chicago to make those great summer feelings last into fall. Whether you plan to take a long weekend exploring what Chicago has to offer or take a day trip from a nearby town, plan to visit a few attractions and eat some delicious food. Here are six of our favorite places to visit in Chicago.

Millennium Park

One of the most iconic locations in Chicago, Millennium Park is a beautiful green space surrounded by modern art and impressive skyscrapers. You can attend free concerts throughout most of the year, including the 18th Annual World Music Festival Chicago in September. On their website, you can check out workout classes, nature programs, and other free events scheduled throughout the year.

Piccolo Sogno

Located at 464 North Halsted Street garden seating, Piccolo Sogno offers rustic Italian cuisine made from fresh seasonal ingredients. Known for their comprehensive wine list and homemade gelato, the restaurant serves a wide range of fairly priced and delicious menu items locals love. During the summer, you can relax and dine in garden seating.

Navy Pier

If you think waterfront views and a beachy atmosphere only exist near oceans, make sure to check out Navy Pier. Here you can catch a speed boat tour of Lake Michigan, play with toy cars at Zoom Room or simply stroll along the pier. Plus, there are many special events scheduled to take place throughout the year.

Museum of Contemporary Art

You can visit the Museum of Contemporary Art throughout the year to check out new art exhibits or attend a free guided tour. During the summer, go to the museum to take a break from the sun. Locals love that Illinois residents get free admission on Tuesdays all year long.

Bridge House Tavern

Located at 321 N. Clark Street, you can watch people from the pub’s terrace and enjoy the view from the Bridge House Tavern. The restaurant serves up delicious lunches and dinners as well as weekend brunches. You can even rent out cabanas and the deck area for private events.

Shedd Aquarium

The Shedd Aquarium is a world-renowned, AZA-accredited aquarium located within Chicago’s city limits. It’s part of Chicago’s CityPASS that offers tremendous savings to visitors looking to go to the aquarium and other attractions such as the Adler Planetarium or the Museum of Science and Industry during their visit. You can see more than just the normal saltwater fish at the Shedd Aquarium with less common exhibits such as belugas and sea otters.

Priceless Views

Chicago’s architecture and skyline are beautiful from both the ground and the sky. At least once, plan on seeing the city from the top of a skyscraper to truly appreciate the magnificence. Look down off a glass ledge at the Chicago Skydeck from the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower or drink cocktails from the roof at the London House Chicago. If you’re really fearless, experience Tilt at the 360 Chicago Observation Deck, where you’ll see the Magnificent Mile by looking down.

Parking in Chicago

Parking in the city can be difficult and expensive. New mobile apps, such as Luxe, make it easy to park your car in Chicago!

Luxe is an on-demand valet parking and car services mobile app that sends valets to park for you and more. Simply enter your destination in the app and we’ll send a valet to pick up your car. When you’re ready to leave, tell us where you want your car returned and we’ll deliver it back to you — even in a different location than you started!

Check out our Monthly Subscriptions for even more value!
