An Intimate Look Inside the Mini-Bar

September 03, 2000

Talk about a well-stocked mini-bar! The hip House of Blues Hotel in Chicago has added what it gently calls "intimacy kits" to the usual list of in-room goodies. Each $7 kit contains a condom, lubricant and two sanitary wipes ("so people can be clean, I guess," ventures a hotel spokeswoman).

Other unusual items in the rooms' mini-bars, which have refrigerated and unrefrigerated sections, are pop-up maps of Chicago and harmonicas.

And if you think sex tops the list of what's on guests' minds, shame on you. The hotel reports that the best-selling mini-bar item is a cheese-and-crackers combo. Intimacy kits and first-aid kits are tied for second place, followed by vodka, cashews and bourbon. Room rates begin at $189 per night. Tel. (877) 569-3742.
