The city’s vibrant neighborhoods offer so much more than just a place to do business.

The readers of Condé Nast Traveler must be on to something. For the second year in a row, Chicago has been named “Best Big City in the U.S.” and it’s easy to see why. Home to the most breweries in the country, a Michelin-approved restaurant scene, cutting-edge museums and performance venues, Chicago is the perfect host city for when you want to keep attendees engaged both on and off the clock.

Plan a gala at the sprawling Chicago Cultural Center and your guests will enjoy easy access to the iconic Millennium Park, located right across Michigan Avenue from the stately venue. They’ll also be within easy walking distance from the striking architecture, award-winning restaurants and the celebrated Theater District in the Loop, Chicago’s buzzing downtown neighborhood.

Take advantage of Revel Motor Row’s 20-plus versatile event spaces and you can continue the conversation over drinks and live music from the Original Chicago Blues All Stars at nearby Motor Row Brewing. This historic district is well on its way to becoming the city’s newest entertainment destination.

Looking for something a bit more modern? Chicago is filled with stunning museums whose architecture is almost as impressive as the works of art held within their walls. The world-renowned Art Institute of Chicago offers galleries, gardens and auditoriums for occasions both big and small, where attendees can spend their free time marveling at priceless collections before or after the main show. Over in Hyde Park, the Museum of Science and Industry boasts an awe-inspiring setting for large-scale events next to interactive exhibits that will leave guests eager to see more.
