Spring is here and that means we can finally wake from hibernation and do some stuff in the city.

And there’s quite a lot going on….

Here are a few of our recommendations!

Let us know if you have any other fun spring things to do in Chicago!


1. Drink inside riverwalk domes

Introducing a new way to drink on Chicago’s Riverwalk. Just cause it’s summer doesn’t mean the weather is patio ready. With these new domes, the weather no longer has to stop you! City Winery’s Riverwalk location just set up trasparent domes so you and your friends can hang out in the privacy of your own, temperature controlled little igloo and take in the scenery! Reservations are available now and the cost starts at $150 per person for 2 to 3 people which includes wine and a cheese and charcuterie board.



2.  Take in a show

So many good shows are making their way to Chicago this spring. Big Sean will be at the Aragon on March 31. Chris Brown is in town April 28th. The Chaismokers take on Allstate on April 29th. Clean Bandit will be here May 2, while Deadmau5 comes May 4. And of course The Weeknd brings his tour to Allstate May 23rd. So really, buy some tickets and enjoy the music!
