Trump Hotel – Pleasure or business? What better place than Trump Hotel Chicago? Towering over Michigan Avenue, this glass & steel skyscraper is one of ten in the world to hold a 5-Star Forbes rating for both its restaurant & hotel! It is the tallest reinforced concrete building in the world. With the largest hotel rooms in Chicago, panoramic views & luxurious spa what more can you want? How about one of their special exotic martinis at Rebar?
Shake it up – Start by flying high New Years Eve at Sixteen for dinner, then head to Rebar for fireworks and champagne. Then retire to your room to make your own fireworks!
Virgin Hotel – Wouldn’t it be nice to be a virgin again? Sir Richard makes that a reality with the opening of the first Virgin Hotel in the world! Rooms are colored exactly like his planes – red and white. Use their Virgin app (your wish, their command.) Don’t miss “Death by Chocolate” in their Miss Ricky diner, free cocktails from 6-7, meet your roommates in the Common Room or hang out literally on their roof top. And you thought you could never be a virgin again!
Chicago Cut – Make the cut! Fantastic charred steaks, city views, outdoor terrace (in summer) buzzing bar – reservations essential! Martinis overflow (you even get a straw). Probably the most happening place in Chicago!
Momotaro – Not a carnivore? How about sushi & whiskey? Don’t get lost in their 11,000 sq. ft space! Serving modern Japanese in the Fulton Market District. Don’t miss their signature tartar. Don’t have a reservation? Head to their downstairs izakaya. Large tables, make new friends!
Duck Inn – Duck in! Esquire magazine named it one of the new 10 best restaurants in America & bartender Brandon Phillips just won the Global Bartender Competition for his Gin Cocktail & Gin popcorn. Pre order the duck when reserving. Better than a movie!
Pick Me Up Café – Hungry at 4 AM? Head to Lakeview (filled w/ vintage shops & bars) to this 50’s style cafe! Open 24 hours on weekends – don’t miss their zombie coffee drink: three shots of espresso, two cups of coffee, steamed milk, whipped cream w/ chocolate & caramel! Gives a whole new meaning to “getting picked up.”
Lunch Tip – Want to fast track that business deal? Dine at Sixteen, on the 16th floor in the Trump Hotel. Awarded two Michelin stars, the view alone makes you a winner!

Violet Hour – A yellow lightbulb is the only clue that you have arrived! This Wicker Park bar is ideal for that romantic tryst. White tables, chandeliers, candles & artisanal cocktails. Read the house rules – no beer, cell phones, no Grey Goose! Think Absinthe, beet syrup & egg whites!
The Drake – Footloose? Stay on your feet & move to the rhythm of ballroom &salsa.
