“The Insider's Guide” Of Where To Go And What To Do In Chicago
Tao Chicago, often frequented by celebrities such a Kourtney Kardashian, Taraji P. Henson, and Luca Sabbat, will give you quite the Asian-inspired experience. Part restaurant and part nightclub, Tao Chicago has one of the most lavish and grandiose interiors of anywhere you could imagine. Everything from their furniture to their craftsmanship to the meals themselves, Tao Chicago makes guests feel like a million bucks. The lower level of Tao is the restaurant and seating area while the upper level is a 1,000 person capacity club that provides excellent views into the expansive spaces below.
The club is a hotspot for impressive DJs, Chicagoans, and out of towners alike. These two areas are connected by an impressive staircase that stands in front of a 20-foot tall statue of Quan Yin, a Buddhist deity, atop a Koi pond. Some of the dishes that are featured on the menu include Chilean sea bass, lobster wontons, and Peking duck, a traditional Beijing dish. These dishes are made to inspire and elicit a new appreciation for food within guests.
Tao Chicago prides themselves on offering a distinct sense of arrival and discovery. Designed by Rockwell Group, it was made to seem like the building had been there for centuries and their artifacts were only just recently unearthed. It’s not surprising that this “hidden gem” is one that draws attention from A-Listers to average foodies alike.
