So Much to do, Let's Make the TimeThis vibrant neighborhood offers an abundance of stunning diversions, from trendy shops to dazzling dining to exciting theater and nightclubs. As one of Chicago's more established lakefront neighborhoods, Lakeview East is a diverse place to visit and explore. For the baseball fan, it's important to note, our hotel is blocks from historic Wrigley Field. Outdoor enthusiasts can embrace the lakefront beaches, get things moving on the running and bike paths or launch a boat at Belmont Harbor. It's also host to some of the Chicago's biggest annual events including Halsted Street Market Days, the Annual PrideFest and Pride Parade, and the Lakeview East Festival of the Arts for all day (and night) art, live music and outdoor dining. Of course, there is no lack of night life as well with the Elbo Room, The Vic Theatre and Park West boasting some of the greatest musical talent the city has to offer. If you're a theater buff, Blue Man Group performs at the Briar Street Theatre just blocks away, and continues to thrill audiences year after year.
