Blue Chip Casino Spa

Looking out from the mani/pedi area
Last week we were spending a couple days in Michigan City, Indiana as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. After an overnight at nearby Serenity Springs, we spent the next day at Blue Chip Casino, which included some couples services at the spa.  

Located a few floors up in the Spa Blu Tower, the 10,000 square-foot Spa Blu has a long list of offerings, from foot, hand, skin treatments to manicures to massages to hair styling to make-up applications - with lots of extras and enhancements that can be added on to the experience. 

Within the locker room areas, there's both a steam room and whirlpool to enjoy and you can order an alcoholic beverages to also help you unwind. When I visit a spa, I always linger for a while in the relaxation room. I absolutely love to sit back with a cup of tea and read a magazine, but it's something I just don't make time for at home. So, anytime I am at a salon or a spa, I try to put the phone down and indulge in some alone time with tea and a gossipy celeb magazine. Spa Blu's lounge was dim and comfortable with soothing music. 

My idea of relaxation - tea and a magazine in a quiet space.
On our visit, we first made our way to the mani/pedi area where we sat side by side for pedicures and added on the paraffin wax treatment. Our appointments were scheduled so that we had over an hour in between services, so that gave me plenty of time to just chill. I may have taken some time to enjoy the steam room and whirlpool, but because I just had polish applied to my toes, they recommend skipping it so I didn't damage the work they just did (so something to keep in mind should you schedule services - plan out some whirlpool time before your appointment if you are getting a manicure.) It worked out fine - I got a full uninterrupted hour all by myself with no emails, phone calls, barking dogs or kids complaining that we're out of ice cream or fighting over video games. It was an hour of complete bliss with an issue or People and a hot cup of red rooibos.

Our pedicures were followed up with a 50-minute couples massage. It was our first time experiencing a couple's massage and it was so nice to relax together. And it releived that little bit of guilt I feel when I take advantage of an opportunity to get a massage. I love to get a massage if I can when we travel, but it had been a decade or more since my husband had a massage. With his very demanding, stressful and physical job as a firefighter, he certainly needed it.

Log on to bluechipcasino.com to take a look at the full spa menu.

Of course there's way more than just the spa to enjoy when you are there- besides the 65,000 square-foot casino itself, you can enjoy big name performers in the Stardust Event Center, which seats 1200. You can dine at one of five eateries, which offering everything from snacks to prime steaks. We pre-gamed before our spa appointment at The Game sports bar for a snack and a flight of craft beer and we followed it up with a luxurious meal at William B's Steakhouse. I'll be posting about our dinner experience soon at ChicagoFoodieSisters.com, so keep an eye out for that review of our amazing meal.



If we hadn't already had plans for an overnight elsewhere, it would have made a great getaway. You'll find some great deals on hotel rooms if you take a peek at the website before booking.

  6. A complex nature of poker generated in poker community, a discussion on what dominates in this casino game: skills or success. Most of the people believe that poker is a casino game the outcome of which depends on skills of a casino player and only a small probability is given to a chance. This thesis is confirmed by facts.
