Getting lost in Chicago’s museums is easy—and enjoyable—especially after hours. From venerable venues to a brand-new opening, here’s what’s on display for unique event spaces.
Chicago History Museum
What better reason to toast a cocktail than the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition? With that “spirit” in mind, the Chicago History Museum organized The Last Speakeasy event in December, a party to celebrate the 82nd anniversary of the passage of the 21st Amendment that reversed the ban on alcohol. Before it, 1930s speakeasies and coordinating mob activity were ubiquitous to Chicago, which was the retro feel the museum had in mind for the event.
