What To Do After the MODA Show

What To Do After the MODA Show

The clock is ticking as we start counting down the days to the annual MODA show. Use it as an excuse to treat yourself before the inevitable stress sets in at the end of the quarter. Take the time to pamper yourself, check out one of our favorite spots in the West Loop for dinner, and enjoy the amazing creativity of UChicago students at the show! But the fun doesn't have to end when the designers take their bow. If the post-show reception at The Underground isn't your cup of tea, here are some of our favorite late-night haunts to round out a memorable evening. The Aviary

The Aviary is the place to taste the best cocktails in town. The world class bar (named by GQ as one of the top 50 in the world) offers a wide range of very interesting and exotic drinks from cocktails to their drinks which come with dry ice! Don't forget to try their best treats which include horchata, their signature cocktail made with fruit flavoured ice rings that change flavour of the drink as they melt. Definitely give a chance to this selective bar and treat yourself with their perfectly-prepared cocktails to top off your ultra-glamorous night the right way!

This 18+ jazz venue is the perfect place to end your classy night with the ultimate Chicago experience. There is no better place to experience world class jazz than in the city that gave birth to the blues. The intimate and relaxed atmosphere is a favourite of the locals so give this cozy place a chance to chill after the MODA Show.

Being a dolled up fashionista all night is hungry work! Stop by this warm Greek restaurant/cafe/bakery to satisfy all your sweet tooth cravings. Definitely make sure to try their famous tiramisu, walnut baklava and berry cheesecake!

After the excitement of the show, or the stress of a long week, maybe you just want to put your (well shod) feet up and take a breather. The laid back atmosphere of Beer Bistro is the perfect place to sit back, relax and compare your favorite looks from the runway with your friends.
