In celebration of the opening of the Art Institute of Chicago’s “Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again” exhibit on Oct. 20, The Albert restaurant will offer a special “POPart” inspired cocktail. Priced at 14$, the unique combination of pink and purple hues made with vodka, rose, tea and wild raspberry will surely spark the perfect photo-op.
In addition to this, The Albert will host a Paint and Sip Pop Art Event in partnership with Museica Sip and Paint on Oct. 29 from 6-9 p.m. Priced at $60 per person, attendees will be treated to a complimentary glass of wine paired with small bites at the Chef’s Table. An instructor will guide attendees through the process of painting their own “pop art” piece to take home. A 10 percent discount to the restaurant will also be provided to attendees who bring in a physical copy of their Art Institute of Chicago ticket from Oct. 20, 2019 to Jan. 26, 2020.
Both didactic and artistic, The Albert restaurant provides nothing short of a unique experience. The restaurant, located at 228 E. Ontario, contains more than 12,000 carefully selected science novels lining the walls of the airy space. In addition, the restaurant includes an intimate 20-seat open kitchen decorated with artwork from West Coast surrealist painter, Paul Bond, and local Chicago artist Jonathan Plotkin.
