All Events


Where are events held?

Events are held throughout the hotel in one of our many iconic spaces. Check each event listing for its location, including:

Tank (Ground floor ): Originally referred to as “The Tank” by club members, the Chicago Athletic Association’s pool has been transformed into an inviting, public venue, preserving the name. The mosaic tile which once lined the bottom of the swimming now sits atop the basin, mimicking the space’s original lane striping and markers.

Drawing Room (2nd floor): The Drawing Room is also the Chicago Athletic Association hotel’s lobby and features the original fireplaces, antique trophies, intimate reading nooks and lounge areas.

Game Room (2nd floor): Originally the billiards room of the Chicago Athletic Association, Game Room is a casual playground homage to our clubby past for a new era of competitive smack downs.

Stagg Court (4th floor): Stagg Court has been fully restored to its original gymnasium grandeur, featuring two basketball hoops and a vintage mahogany running track encircling the room from one story above.

White City Ballroom  (8th Floor): Truly a breathtaking expression of Old Chicago glamour and grandeur, White City Ballroom’s floor-to-ceiling windows, capped with vintage stained glass, open directly onto Millennium Park and Lake Michigan’s blue horizon.

Madison Ballroom  (8th Floor): For downtown sophistication with genuine style, Madison Ballroom stands without peer. Dramatic windows extend from the original walnut parquet floors to a gold leaf beamed ceiling graced by three formidable 19th century crystal chandeliers.
