Sophisticated Speakeasy
5.0

Although the Green Mill serves up more jazz than blues, I have to include it here. The club and cocktail lounge opened its doors in 1907 and has a long history in Chicago, including gaining notoriety in the 1920s as a popular hangout for gangsters like Al Capone. As soon as you walk through the door, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back in time to a sophisticated speakeasy

One of the Largest Natural History Museums in the World
5.0

The Field Museum is one of the largest natural history museums in the world and has an interesting history on its own: It originated for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition and the artifacts displayed at the fair. In fact, Tiffany & Co’s gem collection was a huge hit at the Exposition. When the exposition closed, the World’s Fair President Harlo Higinbotham purchased the entire collection and donated it to the then-new museum. Today, this collection is part of the Grainger Hall of Gems, with more than 600 gemstones and 150 pieces of antique and contemporary jewelry.
