Bustling, energetic and fun, Chicago breezes along no matter the season, especially after dark. Windy City entertainment culture is exciting, fast-paced, and diverse, filled with acclaimed restaurants, bars around every corner, clubs both laidback and sophisticated, sports action, and a thriving theatrical scene. Cutting-edge performances unfold in historic stages, and The Shubert, Chicago, Goodman, LaSalle Bank, Cadillac Palace, Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, and the Ford Center have made downtown a must destination for theater lovers. Besides three of the world’s tallest buildings, Chicago has more than 200 theaters altogether. Some 15,500 restaurants, and more than 4,ooo clubs and watering holes, include an abundance of wine bars where serious discussions unfold on topics like whether pinot grigio constitutes a suitable chaser for tequila slammers. Most bars stay open until 2 or 3 a.m. on weekends, with some dance bars open until dawn. As a film site for such movies as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, What Women Want, and When Harry Met Sally, Chicago boasts solutions for virtually every nightlife whim.
