Now this is how to watch a movie! Tucked away on Michigan Ave, the Terrace Roof Top of the Conrad Hotel, hosts movie night on a big screen. A beautiful view surrounding the screen makes for a perfect night. There are a few more movies being featured this summer, including Moneyball on Sept 2 and The Vow (filmed in Chicago!) on the 9th. You’ll find the full schedule here. http://conradhotels3.hilton.com/en/hotels/illinois/conrad-chicago-CHICICI/amenities/restaurants-the-terrace-rooftop.html.
You can eat during the movie but if you’d prefer to grab a bite before heading to the roof top, there are plenty of great options on Michigan Ave. Bandera is classic American (http://www.hillstone.com/#/restaurants/bandera/), The Grand Lux has a mile long menu (http://www.grandluxcafe.com/), The Purple Pig is a culinary hot spot (http://thepurplepigchicago.com/) and Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse is getting rave reviews (http://www.mjshchicago.com/).
The entrance to the Conrad is inside the North Bridge Shopping Mall. You’ll find the elevators right before Nordstrom. Oh, and WGN Radio is right down the block…be sure to stop by, look in to the Allstate Showcase Studio and wave hello!Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
