Chicago is our kind of town. It’s exciting, entertaining, architecturally distinctive, and bold with true Midwest charm. It’s a city with a rich history, numerous attractions, defining skyscrapers, a vibrant arts and music scene, restaurants offering mouthwatering cuisine, and, of course, that deep-dish pizza. People from all over the world visit the Windy City for all of the above and because it’s simply one of the country’s true hot spots for tourists.
This city is also home to many small and large companies; many top companies have their headquarters in Chicago. “There are close to 100,000 different businesses licensed in the City of Chicago as diverse as retail or grocery stores, bars, restaurants, public vehicles, taxicabs, manufacturing and industrial plants,” according to the City of Chicago. Companies often need an event venue for holiday parties, where it’s not just about celebrating, but about reconnecting with employees.
