The James Chicago - Magnificent Mile

55 East Ontario, Corner of Rush and Ontario, Chicago, IL 60611
13 reviews

I love the James Chicago because it redefines the boutique hotel experience. It’s upscale and has a beautifully styled restaurant with outstanding service. In Chicago it’s important to have the right location; I love walking and the James couldn’t be in a better spot.

    Eataly

    0.07 mi from The James Chicago - Magnificent Mile
    7 reviews

    Eataly just opened up in Chicago and is very similar to the one in New York. There are numerous stands, a Nutella bar, coffee bar, gelato bar, meat and cheese bar, etc. there are also some restaurants to dine at, though the wait can be long. I'd highly recommend going when Eataly opens to avoid the heavy crowds.

    If you want to dance to typical dance music, but with a view of the city, go here. In the summer their patio is open and you get to enjoy one of the many high rise rooftops in the city. Drinks are typically pricey, but thats's to be expected for a downtown bar. Check your coat and dance a little.

    I'm a sucker for live music and that's exactly what The Joynt does so well. 7 nights a week in downtown Chicago you can find some of the best Blues, R&B, Motown and Pop musicians in the state of Illinois. One of the owners used to be a road manager for Sinatra and you'll feel the classic, old-school vibe as ...

    3 reviews

    This church gives new meaning to the word "awesome" with the root of the word being "awe". This beautiful church is a nice addition to the list of places that make Chicago so great. Pop your head in during the day and if you want to attend a mass- they are offered several times a week.

    I've tried Bikram in the past and have failed. I'm not sure what it is about BYRN but from my first class I was hooked. Mike the owner and one of the instructors was by far my favorite. He was very encouraging of people to not leave class and would take the time to meet with yogis after class to ...

    Here's a real insider spot because you'll probably miss it if you don't know what you are looking for. For a strong drink, off Michigan Avenue, this friendly nook offers friendly service and well-priced cocktails. Mostly an older gay crowd. **Last I checked- cash only.

AMBIANCE ========== Not too dark like cocktail lounges tend to be, just enough light to determine if your date is a Strobe Light Honey (definition: http://www.urbandictiona…). Nooks and crannies of the lounge were filled with vintage spirits bottles and cut crystal ...

    Came here for an event after work and the crowd was already building. Downstairs has an upscale sports bar feel but I prefer the spaciousness of the upstairs. Get here early though. It's one of the "are you on the list?" places. Sliders were really good.
