Headed to Chicago and want to show off by posting photos of the most hip spots on your Instagram? Look no further than these must-visit spots in the windy city to make all your friends wish they were right there with you.


Put this new West Loop bar on your to-do list ASAP. With on point cocktails, bocce ball in the backyard, and Sunday picnics, you’ll have plenty of picturesque possibilities to impress your followers.


This chic restaurant is every blogger’s dream come true. String lights, neon signs, and the absolute cutest color palette make Hampton Social a must on your next vacay. Be sure to snap a photo of the ‘Rosé All Day’ sign while you’re there for Sunday’s acoustic brunch!


We love fried chicken – especially when eaten in a gorgeous setting. The eye-catching red and white interior design at Parson’s is the perfect spot to snap a few photos to ‘gram while chowing down on some seriously delicious grub.


What’s a trip to Chicago without a visit to the bean? Whether it’s an epic selfie or a simple pose next to this gem, a photo with this landmark is an absolute must. My favorite photos are on a partly cloudy day, making the reflections of the city that much more eye-catching.


I’m digging the rustic decor at this hip restaurant in Chicago. The reclaimed wood tables, exposed brick, and antique plates provide a lovely backdrop for photos – especially flat lays of their top notch food. We recommend stopping by for brunch or their incredible happy hour.


The Greetings from Chicago mural in Logan Square is the ultimate ode to the city. Each letter of the word features the city’s highlights from deep dish pizza to the skylines and monuments. Whatever you do, don’t miss the opportunity to reel in the likes with a photo op in front of this mural.


This next spot on the list is perfect for girls’ night out. The New American restaurant and champagne bar in the West Loop nails industrial chic interior design with indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy with friends. Pose beneath the string lights alfresco with a glass of champagne or cheers to good times underneath the lavish chandeliers inside.


This little pop up might just be the cutest spot in Chicago. With its bright pops of color and strung pendants outside, Expat truly captures the fun essence of summertime. The alcoholic sno cones are the ideal treat to cool off on a hot summer day, and these colorful concoctions are a must to show off on your Instagram.


The observation boxes at Willis Tower offer the absolute best views of the city of Chicago. Not only will you get to knock this baby off your bucket list, you’ll be able to impress your friends with your fearless sightseeing achievement. I, for one, have to pass on this photo op due to my insane fear of heights!


The Soho House group sets the bar for high quality decor and top notch food and drinks at all of their hotel locations. The Allis might just be our favorite little hotel bar and restaurants perfect for afternoon tea, small bites, or cozying up at the bar. Everywhere you turn, there is something more beautiful than the next. Snap away.
