Heart of the City

Chicago Cultural Center 78 East Washington Street Chicago

Conrad Chicago
Written By Conrad Chicago

New Location. New Edge. New Conrad. Smart rooms and intuitive service at the center of everything.

This stunning building across the street from Millennium Park is a great resource for new visitors to the city. Beyond the gorgeous Louis Comfort Tiffany dome (a favorite backdrop for engagement photos) there is free programming year-round, including performances and visual art exhibits. 

Several galleries throughout the first and second floors showcase multimedia art from local and Midwest artists with regular artist and curator gallery talks offered. If your itinerary is flexible, you’ll want to go on a Monday afternoon for the free chamber music concerts and Wednesdays there are solo and ensemble classical music performances during lunch hour.

Insider Tip:

The facade and interior of the building will tell you the building's original use. You may or may not need to know a bit of Latin. The photo below gives you a hint.
