Went as part of the 40th Chicago jazz festival. Great place in a very modern and unusual setting. Very space age design.

Jay Pritzker Pavilion is located in the north end of Millennium Park. The massive structure is impossible to miss with its impressive architectural features. They have several performances here including the Jazz Fest and a classical music series. The sound is state of the art...More

The area with seats worked well for someone on a cane, not too steep. It's an outdoor venue, so when the torrential rain came, we had to leave. The security and volunteers were very helpful in that event. The sound system is good and the...More

The venue was great but they need to work on their customer service. The website and all of their signs clearly say that low chairs are allowed but they wouldn’t let us bring ours in. Lots of other people had them. The supervisor said she...More

During my April stroll through Millennium Park (preceded by a similar stroll in Maggie Daley Park, across the bridge), I came upon Pritzker Pavilion. It is a lovely venue, and a bowl-style amphitheater. During my visit, there was a bit of construction/reconstruction, and I am...More

This attraction is right by the Bean, so if you see one you should see the other. The cool design of the pavilion is enough for a few good selfies. On certain afternoons and evenings, the venue will host free concerts or orchestral performances. It’s...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

It's called Millenium Park Garage. The vehicle entrance for the Millennium Park Garage is on South Columbus Drive between Monroe Street (from the south, heading north) and Randolph Street (from the north, heading south).
