Chicago Athletic Association Hotel
What used to be an elite private men’s club dating back to the 1890s, the Chicago Athletic Association is now an architectural marvel of a hotel that hosts the ultimate adult playground and bar. “The Game Room” on the second floor is true to its name, and has some of the city’s best old-school cocktails and snacks, all served around billiards, chess, cards, foosball tables and, of course, a bocce court. Your grandpa would be proud.
