Shopping

Magnificent Mile

Magnificent Mile is Chicago's most popular shopping street and the eighth most expensive shopping street in the US. Although the street is due to high-end stores like Tiffany's or Hugo Boss in this line, this would be a mistake to overlook all the other sights the street has to offer. There are many restaurants and cafes on the street, as well as numerous clubs, hotels, museums, theaters and even a 360-degree observatory that adds to its atmosphere. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, although the road is pleasantly wide and dotted with trees, but it is still quite crowded. You may also find it difficult to find a parking space if you are traveling by car. You probably have to park in one of the nearby streets.

It only cost 5 cents to get in, and you even got a chewing gum as a gift from the company. Today, both offices and retail properties are rented in the building. So if you want to admire the beautiful Chicago skyline, you can do so shopping in stores like Zara, Sephora, Giorgio Armani or H & M. If you just want to love the structure from the outside, you can do so at night, when the building is lit with different colors and it is visible from a distance.

Arts Club of Chicago

201 East Ontario Street
Arts Club of Chicago is a private club and public exhibition space located in the Near North Side community area of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois, United States, a block east of the Magnificent Mile, that exhibits international contemporary art. It was founded in 1916, inspired by the success of the Art Institute of Chicago's handling of the Armory Show. Its founding was viewed as a statement that art had become an important component of civilized urban life. The Arts Club is said to have been pro-Modernist from its founding. The Club strove to break new ground with its shows, rather than collect the works of established artists as the Art Institute does. The club presented Pablo Picasso's first United States showing. In addition, the 1951 exhibition by Jean Dubuffet and his "Anticultural Positions" lecture at the Arts Club were tremendous influences on what would become the mid-1960s Imagist movement.
