March 14 – 15 @ 360 CHICAGO

We’re all Irish around St. Pat’s Day but if you wear green to 360 CHICAGO and purchase a general admission ticket, you’ll be treated to one free TILT ride. Tip 30 degrees out over the city below on this one-of-a-kind attraction. One ride per ticket purchased.


St. Patrick’s Day Events

There’s no doubt that Chicago is one of the best places on Earth to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, other than maybe an actual city in Ireland, of course. The entire city is going green and there’s no escaping the Irish spirit that will take over Chicago. Consult our St. Patrick’s Day Guide for an in-depth guide that will share every single event taking place for St. Pat’s. And yes, while St. Patrick’s Day is only on March 17, you know the city will be celebrating through the weekend.

March 14 & 15 @ 360 CHICAGO

Practice your sun salutations from 1,000 feet closer to the sun at 360 CHICAGO’s 94th-floor yoga class. 360 Sky Yoga welcomes yoga enthusiasts from all skill levels to a one-hour weekly class led by 360 CHICAGO’s professional instructor. Participants will be led through meditation and gentle flow movements to awaken the senses, stretches, breath-centered movements, and morning sun salutations. Registration is $18 and includes a General Admission ticket to the observation deck, so feel free to stick around after the class and take in the amazing views! 360 Sky Yoga sells out every week because the class is crazy cheap and they’re kind of a big deal now, so be sure and register well in advance! Special sessions with guest instructors are held once per month.
