Chicago Venues Open This July

It’s hard to believe we’ve been cooped up in our homes for almost half of the year! But as Chicago continues to slowly reopen, most of us are eager to explore our beloved city once again. Whether it’s to catch some live jazz or blockbuster movies, here are some of the top Chicago venues welcoming guests back to their establishments. Heads up, you’ll need a face mask and must follow their rules. These businesses are taking social distancing practices very seriously (as should you!).
