WHAT TO WEAR:

  • Time of year is obviously factor here – huge coats and scarves in winter are a must in Chicago in the winter
  • Jeans, boots, sweaters – Chicago is fairly casual overall
  • Flat shoes or sneakers as there is a lot of walking to do!

WHAT TO DO:

  • Visit the Bean – day or night or both!
  • Take photos in and around Agora – so inspiring
  • Enjoy high tea at the Langham
  • Stroll through the city admiring the architecture and Hancock Tower
  • I am keen to visit Chitown in the summer and experience some fun on Lake Michigan so watch this space for some new adventures…

WHERE TO HANG:

  • Ralph Lauren Restaurant bar for cocktails and light snacks
  • Sawada for coffee and donuts – you must try the military one!
  • Bucktown Wicker Park area – boutiques, local bars and street art
  • Play pinball and other games at Barcade – late night is best!
  • Sports games – Cubs, Bulls, Blackhawks and now rugby! Yay!

WHERE TO EAT:

  • Longman & Eagle – farm to table brunch or dinner and craft cocktails
  • Bavette’s for dinner – romance and lots of food!
  • Girl & The Goat – an incredible foodie experience
  • Bar Siena for a casual Italian, sporty vibe in the West Loop
  • Duck Duck Goat for awesome Chinese and great decor

WHERE TO STAY:

  • The Langham – great service and location next to the Chicago River!
  • The Peninsula – glamourous hotel next to the Magnificent Mile
  • Loews Downtown – modern luxury with fun rooftop for skyline views
  • Four Seasons – always a lovely experience globally!

Would love to hear your thoughts!
