Let Love Rule: Romantic Things to do in Chicago

Chicago is a city full of possibilities and that goes for romance, too. 

The Gwen’s winter terrace is a sweet place to snuggle, try curling, nosh, sip warm adult bevvies and cozy up by the fireplace. The wood-paneled Curling Cabin is on the fifth floor of the property complete with an outdoor porch, Adirondack chairs and a swing seat for two. Inside, choose a table or lounge in the living room area that sports a fireplace and faux furs to drape upon your chill. The iceless Curling Rink gives couples a chance to try their hands at the curious winter sport in which players slide stones on a sheet of ice towards a target. Admission for The Gwen Curling Rink is $25 per person, which includes a choice of one cocktail and 30 minutes of curling playtime. Even if you don’t curl, enjoy an Alpine-inspired menu and winter cocktails including large-format hot cocktails like mulled wine and hot buttered rum.

Jacky’s expert tip: The Gwen’s outdoor terrace, Curling Cabin and Curling Rink are open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. In the warmer months, book the luxe glamping tent.
