Hillary Marzec, an expert guide and founder of Inside Chicago Walking Tours, leads guests on a tour of InterContinental Chicago’s historic tower, highlighting the hidden secrets, famous guests, and historical and architectural features. History buffs are invited to end the night swinging and sipping back at ENO, with live jazz and swing music entertainment provided by one of the hotel’s local famed trios, as well as a complimentary glass of wine.
The iconic hotel serves as the perfect backdrop for a night of history and entertainment. The kick-off event takes place on Wednesday, January 31, and tickets are $48 and can be purchased here.
