How to Be Productive and Also Have Fun in Your Business Trip in Chicago

Who said you can’t have a good time when you are on a business trip? Business journeys are not only about work but also about discovering new cultures, new people, they are about networking and why not, having fun in order to relax and be more productive when you get back to work.

If you are arranging your next business trip to Chicago, find out that the Windy City is the perfect place to be to make your journey a blast.

Here is how to transform your next business trip in Chicago into a mini vacation.

Choose a tech hotel – Renaissance Chicago

Choosing the right accommodation is the most important thing when you plan your business trip. Renaissance Chicago perfectly combines relaxation facilities with a proper work environment. So, if you want to work in the company of a distinguished drink, you can do it in the quiet VIP lounge. If you want to have some fun and meet new people, you can go to the bar where you will meet the creatives of an ad agency, or the techies from Microsoft enjoying a relaxing meeting downtown.

Organize a business lunch at Sepia

Forget about boring meetings in usual lounges, and arrange a fancy business dinner instead. Your partners or co-workers will be delighted. Sepia is a sophisticated restaurant that will certainly offer you a great experience. A combination between modern and traditional, both in the interior and on your plate, Sepia is the perfect place to be for talking business in an inviting atmosphere. Let the Chef Andrew Zimmerman impress you with his amazing dishes.

Enjoy a business dinner at North Pond Restaurant

You and your business partners will be delighted by the food served at North Pond Restaurant, prepared by Chef Bruce Sherman using only local and organic ingredients from local farmers. Fill your belly with a hearty dish – marinated lamb with snap peas and a glass of red wine, and you will feel fantastic.

Go to a cocktail, after work, at The Violet Hour

Break the monotony of a typical business trip and enjoy an artisanal cocktail in the heart of Wicker Park in the Windy City. You can invite your business partners or colleagues to join you, and you will sure have some fun in a nice place. Take into account that the cocktails menu changes every season, so that you will experience unique tastes. Do you fancy a classic Dark & Stormy or a creative Tremulous Things I Said?

Take a ride at Evanston

Add a unique experience to your business trip. Visit Evanston, Chicago’s northern suburb. If you would like to enjoy a relaxing shopping session, or you want to taste some wine or try the famous Italian dishes at La Macchina Café, or just enjoy the urban culture, this is the place to be.
