Sophie's Chicago

Craft cocktails and a seasonal menu with an unbeatable view of the Mag Mile. Oh, and there’s a Saks Fifth Avenue pretty close by. Welcome to Sophie’s, tucked away on the 7th Floor of Saks (sophies.com, 700 N. Michigan Ave.) Yes, you will see ladies who lunch. And corporate types at client meetings. But that’s where the similarities to other restaurants in high-end retail stores end. You see, Sophie’s isn’t just an afterthought to wind down a day of binge shopping. In one year, this little gem has already become a destination in its own right, and deservedly so.

The food and beverage menus are seasonal, and every effort is made to use locally-sourced ingredients, including spirits from Chicago distilleries. The hand-crafted cocktails are creative but

1. You can dine with Da Coach

The Ambassador Condos in the Gold Coast Traditional elegance is on display at the Ambassador condos in the Gold Coast, and if you’re looking for an upscale lifestyle in a charming downtown condo building, this may be the place for you. Situated at 1300 N. State Parkway, the Ambassador condos in the Gold Coast are housed in the former Ambassador Hotel and were only recently converted into 37 high-end residential condos in the early part of the 2000s.   

Inside, the masterful lobby still takes residents back to its vintage 1920s roots while the condos themselves nicely combine stylish, updated finishes with the building’s traditional and timeless ambiance. Crown molding, handsome fireplaces and rich hardwood flooring blend in well with the Ambassador’s general look and feel while modern

Gold Coast & Rush Street Chicago

Rush Street is a brief thoroughfare with a long history in Chicago. Once a well-trod Indian trail leading all the way to Green Bay, it was named in honor of the patriot Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration—a fitting pedigree to be part of Chicago’s Gold Coast.  Yet to most, Rush Street is less about what happened then what’s happenin’! Ever since the sixties it’s been the destination for Chicago nightlife—Party Central for dining, dancing and carousing till the sun peeks up over the lake.  While maturing over time, its tastes growing more refined and debonair (just like those of you who may have sown your wild oats here!) the irresistible energy of Rush Street still sparks the social swirl of the city.
