Chicago Instagram Guide: Part 1

If you’re anything like us, you love finding the newest & cutest spots around town that are packed full of photo opportunities. Today we’ll be sharing a few of our favorites in our Chicago Instagram Guide: Part 1! 

 Summer House Santa Monica

Summer House Santa Monica is our go-to lunch spot! When I say we’re regulars, I mean we’re regulars.

While it’s located in Lincoln Park, the moment you walk through the front door, you feel like you’re in southern California. The airy & breezy atmosphere instantly transports you to the west coast! The hanging plants & twinkle lights draped across the restaurant make for the perfect photo opportunity.

Their fresh salads & yummy poké bowls always do the trick! & if you feel like grabbing a sweet treat, their cookies topped with rice krispies & ice cream will definitely do the trick.

Cindy’s Rooftop

Cindy’s Rooftop, located in the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, has one of the best views in the city! Their patio overlooks the picture-perfect Millennium Park (home of the infamous ‘bean’) & Lake Michigan.

It’s the perfect spot to stop by for a quick drink, but also has a great event space perfect for various parties and occasions.

The Hampton Social

The Hampton Social is our go-to brunch spot. The simple, nautical decor is any East Coaster’s dream!

With a menu packed full of fresh seafood dishes & an impressive drink menu, this place can’t be beat.

P.S. The Hampton Social is also the home of the infamous ‘Rose All Day’ neon sign plastered across Instagram!

Until Next Time,
