Hello readers,

The Rolling Stones are in town for the next three months with vast amounts of memorabilia and instruments on display in the acclaimed “Exhibitionism” at Navy Pier—and there’s one hotel they won’t be too quick to trash.

Loews Chicago Hotel has been named the official hotel partner of “Exhibitionism” with special rates, unique craft cocktails and spa packages all paying homage to the world-famous rock ‘n’ rollers. The downtown hotel is conveniently just a short walk away from the exhibit, which is on display now through July 30.

It features 18,000 square feet of space filled to the brim with 500 rare pieces, including Keith Richard’s diary, countless guitars and Mick Jagger’s on-stage costumes as well as replicas of the London-area apartment flat where they lived before they found notoriety.

Groups of 10 or more will receive 15% off regular admission rates; as well, VIP packages offer after-hour opportunities to view the exhibit along with wine and apps plus exclusive lithographs and $50 merchandise vouchers. There’s also the option to plan evening functions within the nine various rooms with private viewings. Head to their website for ticket details.

Back at Loews Chicago Hotel, you can treat your guests to various specialty cocktails at the lobby’s ETA Restaurant + Bar. Options include the Exhibitionism: Dear Doctor made with Johnny Walker, lemon juice, honey and ginger beer; the Exhibitionism: Hey Negrita with Langley’s, campari and sweet vermouth; and Exhibitionism: Flight 505 with bourbon, aperol, amaro and lemon juice.

Spa at Loews Chicago also offers themed services including the Paint It Black no-chip mani-pedi, Time Is On My Side resurfacing facial and the Start Me Up foot refresher. Make appointments by calling (312.840.6615.

Finally, there’s also the Let’s Spend the Night Together hotel room package. The two-night stay offers:

  • Overnight accommodation
  • Two general admission tickets to “Exhibitionism”
  • Two “Exhibitionism” specialty craft cocktails at ETA Restaurant + Bar per night
  • 20 percent off at ETA Restaurant + Bar

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

Held at the United Center Sept. 21-23, 2018, the Laver Cup—a men’s tennis tournament pitting six top European players against six of their counterparts—marked the first time this major event has been held in the United States. Total event attendance was more than 93,000 people, with fans from around the world traveling to Chicago for an unforgettable experience with the game’s best players. “The Laver Cup was a huge win for Chicago,” says Kara Bachman, executive director of the Chicago Sports Commission.
