Skate Weekend: It’s Our Birthday!
While our building may be 126 years old, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel turns 4 this May!
You’re invited to our two-night Skate Birthday Party at The Track, our pop-up Roller Rink inside Stagg Court. Each session, jam to live DJs and lip sync battles, hosted by Loose Lips and judged by three amateur professionals (we use that term loosely).
More than just an anniversary, it’s a celebration of our guests and visitors who make our hotel the inviting and inspiring place it is today. As a thank you, sip on complimentary adult kiddie cocktails by Apologue Liquers, and enjoy birthday cake from Cindy’s Pastry team.
Tickets are $20 to each 2-hour session.
Tickets also available for purchase at the door, cash-only.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

How many sessions can I attend?
As many as you’d like! For those purchasing multiple sessions, please note there will be a 1 hour break to reset the rink.

The Track Roller Rink
Popping up in the building’s historic gymnasium known today as Stagg Court, The Track Roller Rink is home to quarterly skate weekends, monthly roller routines, and a playful line-up of four-wheeled activities throughout the year. With a name affectionately paying homage to the running track that rings the top of the iconic space, The Track Roller Rink invites newbies and skilled skaters to lace up for events with flair for the thematic, and nostalgia of a bygone era. Chicago has long held a deep love for skating, and now, The Track Roller Rink offers skating sanctuary in the heart of downtown for locals, visitors, JB skaters, and everyone in between.
