Chicago

Recognized the world over as the Windy City, Chicago is a bustling metropolis where architectural innovation, outstanding food and internationally acclaimed entertainment come together.

Once the setting for gangsters battling it out during Prohibition, Chicago has emerged from the notoriety associated with the likes of Al Capone to establish itself as a vibrant and multicultural city. Following the Great Chicago Fire in 1871, the city witnessed a building boom that is still a prominent part of its skyline and ethos today. From the Home Insurance Building, the first steel-framed high-rise, to Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate, Chicago offers an architectural spectacle like no other. With roots deeply entrenched in jazz and blues, the city’s festivals, theaters and nightspots offer a variety of entertainment that showcases Chicago’s eclectic culture. This ambiance is exemplified by the wonderfully diverse selection of Michelin-starred restaurants and the magnificence of the city’s skyline.
