Weekend in Chicago

Cort and I have a tradition of going to Chicago the weekend before Christmas for a little getaway in the city. We love Chicago all year round, but it’s a little extra magical around the holidays. Things have been super hectic lately, so it was so nice to have a little break for a couple days! I had so many DM’s about where we ate while we were in the city, so I wanted to break it all down here!


The Kitchen- We went here for lunch on Saturday when we first got into the city. The food is amazing and it’s right on the water

Barrio- We ate dinner here on Saturday night. I had been once over the summer and was dying to go back. The margaritas and chips & guac are amazing!!

LondonHouse- Drinks on LondonHouse rooftop is a must! The views are amazing and so are the drinks (sequin pants photo above). We lucked out and it wasn’t too cold when we went but it’s definitely nice to sit outside in the summer and enjoy it longer!

Beatrix- We ate here for breakfast on Sunday morning after hearing good things- it did not disappoint!

Garrett’s Popcorn- I can’t go to Chicago without getting my favorite popcorn!

We’ve stayed at LondonHouse multiple times and have loved it! Great location and great views of the river. The staff is super friendly and accommodating.

This was a super quick trip and we mainly just shopped and ate, but if you’re looking for more recommendations, be sure to read my Chicago City Guide!
