Find a Local Live Music Scene
Chicago is home to small nightclubs, cafe, and pubs which host a wide variety of casual musical performances on any given night. Check out a local singer and songwriter at a late-night coffeehouse or find an Irish pub and have a blast singing along with the band over a couple of beers. Grab a cocktail at a local jazz bar and experience a bit of Chicago history. Get out there and enjoy the wonderful music scene that Chicago has to offer and be sure to sit far enough away from the music so that you can still chat with your date.
Get a New View of the City
If you’re feeling brave enough, take your date up to an observation platform in Chicago and enjoy the experience of seeing the city in a whole new way. If you love Chicago, you’ll love looking out over the lake and finding a few familiar landmarks from an observation platform in Chicago.
Attend a Lecture
It may not be for everyone, but because Chicago is home to so many wonderful universities, a large number of authors, politicians and other highly celebrated speakers come through the Chicago area regularly. You can head to the local bookstore to catch a lecture or a reading with a famous author or take advantage of the fantastic authors and lecturers that put on public talks all over the city’s several university campuses.
