Chicago South Loop area – Chicago Athletic Association Club/Hotel

I had the honor of going for a tour with the Chicago Architecture foundation of the Chicago Athletic Association Club/Hotel.  The architecture and beauty is breathtaking!  Spanning the outside, front entrance (the hotel check-in is on the second floor), halls, bars, rooms, party rooms and terrace of the Chicago Athletic Association everywhere you look is more beautiful!

This is a historic landmark in Chicago with so much beauty and history.  Distinguished members have enjoyed the Club for over a hundred years but now it is open to the public to enjoy.  have visited the hotel a few times with friends for dinner and drinks and to enjoy Cindy’s Rooftop view and ambiance.  Cindy’s was named after their mother Cindy and the Andy Warhol of Cindy is an original hanging in the separate party room with the fireplace.

The hotel was renovated by the Pritzker’s over many years, they preserved everything they could with no expenses spared.  The architecture and details throughout are magnificent. The hotel had a pool that famous members enjoyed which they remodeled into another entertainment room.  One of the bars/game room has pool tables, games, bocce ball with one of the original logos for the Chicago Athletic Association which was purchased and is now the Chicago Cubs logo.Most of the logos throughout the club have been revised.  The Milk room bar is what you would think, a quiet little bar tucked away that used to sell milk ( 🙂  ).  The Cherry Circle room is another tucked away bar which has been restored to it’s original look and feel.  The library is open to the public to study, read or just relax in the beauty of it all, I have attached some photos which do not give it justice.

If you are living in Chicago or thinking about moving to Chicago or just visiting, put The Chicago Athletic Association on your places to visit, admire, dine at, have cocktails or stay at.

Thinking about moving to this great city?  Contact me and I can help you find a South Loop Condo or loft, Loop condo or loft, Old Town condo or loft, Lincoln Park home or any surrounding area or type home.

Chicago South Loop Museum Park Real Estate market stats Jan/Feb 2017

Chicago South Loop Museum Park Real Estate market stats for January and February of 2017 are showing a slight slow down of properties being sold.  Prices coming down slightly for South Loop lofts and condos and a little more inventory then in the past months.  Interest rates crept up a little and I would think that had something to do with less buyers in the South Loop area.  The stats are showing that we are almost even with last years figures.  It is hard to predict what will happen this year.  Experts have said we will see increased prices by the end of the year but there are so many factors that go into our stats that we cannot control or predict.

Chicago – South Loop Museum Park

I am looking forward to spring/summer in Chicago’s South Loop Museum Park area.  There is so much to do and see.  Within walking distance of the South Loop Museum Campus, the lakefront, Millenium Park, Grant Park, Soldier Field,  McCormick Place, the South Loop is experiencing a rush of young professionals and families that want to work and enjoy their free time close to home. A visit to the Field Museum; dance lessons and dancing under the stars or a free concert at Millennium Park; walking/running/biking along the lake shore past museums, harbors and beaches, or strolling down Michigan Avenue past the shops. restaurants and more.  Not to mention all the beautiful architecture of Chicago .   I love living here, my favorite Chicago sites are so close.   Builders are trying to keep up with the rush of people trying to move to the South Loop by building new condos and apartments.   The South Loop area is growing quickly but still has the neighborhood quiet feeling.  Walking the streets to enjoy the homes, parks, condos and businesses is a peaceful experience.  I think the lure of the Chicago South Loop Museum Park area will continue to grow as time goes on.

Some of my favorite photos from my strolls through the neighborhood.

Chicago Museum Park – Armand’s Victory Tap South Loop

My first visit to Chicago Museum Park‘s – Armand’s Victory Tap South Loop.  Now one of my favorite spots.  We sat at the bar as it was a busy time with no reservations but that was just perfect.  We didn’t feel cramped and the staff and ambiance was great.  High ceilings with great architecture and design, seating spread out a little and the lighting was perfect. An upscale place to go with not so upscale pricing.  Everything we had was delicious.  You can stop in for drinks, drinks and appetizers, pizza (a huge selection of appetizer size), salads, home made pastas and dinners.

We tried the Grandma’s meatballs which were just like my moms only the size of baseballs 🙂 , Calamari Calabrese with just enough spice, Casaccio Nova appetizer pizza mmmm,  home made ravioli absolutely perfect and delicious!

I can’t wait to go back….

When you try it and if you don’t live in the South Loop Museum Park area and want to live there, contact me and I can help you find a Museum Park condo or South loop loft etc in the area.
