Located on the Northwest side of the city - this place is really a hidden treasure. I just love this place. I try to visit it about 6 times a year. I would go more often - but just don't have enough time to do it more often. Go on line and check it out. Reservations needed and about 2... More

Unique experience. $20 PP/45 min. I was very relaxed when I left the cave. I would definitely go back again! I would have given it 5 stars if it had been for a whole hour, but like I said, they only give you 45 min. Still, a pretty cool place.

As part of my birthday treat, my girlfriend bought us a 45 minute stay at the Galos Caves. I was pleasantly surprised by how relaxing sitting in a salt cave was! I'm glad they had the blankets as I would have been a chilly mommy afterwards! I admit, I was VERY relaxed, almost to the point of falling asleep before... More

Used a Groupon for a single visit. Seemed kind of contrived. If I want to meditate, I'll do yoga or get a massage.

if you need to dump the mind, rest the body, and relax this is the place to go. the caves are made of salt from the black sea. you go in lay back listen to soft music and let the salt work its magic, rub your feet in it, your hands, or just breath in. when you walk out you... More

I had business in Chicago, so my long anticipated visit to the Galos Caves - the only salt cave I could locate in the Midwest - was unconvincing. I appreciate many ways to wellness, and had done a lot of searching to understand why sea salt is beneficial for health - it seems logical. However, I can't determine by my... More

I always get a kick out of bringing a new friend or family member to the Galos Salt Caves. This time, my stepdaughter wanted to decompress from a recent, stressful medical trip and flight back to Chicago. We entered the otherworldly salt cave and walked around on crushed Russian rock salt in our white socks for about ten minutes. The... More

Last Saturday afternoon, I visited Galos Caves on Irving Park in Chicago with my friend Lisa (who has been many times & loves it). What a wonderfully relaxing place! The "cave" is a medium size room (guessing 30 by 25 feet) which has been completely covered in salt crystals. Combined with the diffused lighting - some are placed inside of... More
