It bills itself as "trippy" and "ethereal" among other things. But one thing’s for sure: If you like art, nightlife or just big parties, you need to book a Chicago hotel room — now!
The city’s second annual Looptopia is Friday, May 2. This arts extravaganza takes over the Loop with 300 artists at 100 venues showcasing music, visual art, interactive activities, theater and more. You’ll find music from the DePaul University A Capella Choir, dance from Jezebelly Tribal Bellydance, children’s story readings, a performance by Cirque du Soleil… in short, something for everyone. The fun starts at 5 p.m. and goes until early the next morning.
Several Chicago hotels are hosting events. At the Palmer House Hilton, there’s a musical comedy act at 10 p.m. and songs from Broadway shows at 11 p.m. Then from 1 a.m. to 5 p.m. you can make your own art (like a t-shirt or mask), while enjoying music and performances. W Chicago City Center will have video games, board games and Killerspin (professional table tennis) from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
