Sophy Hotel

Summer at SOPHY is SO-Chicago


It’s an exciting summer ahead in Chicago, a city that offers a feast of cultural attractions in a diverse and cosmopolitan landscape. The roster of events includes the blockbuster exhibit Van Gogh and the Avant-Garde: The Modern Landscape, which has just opened at the Art Institute of Chicago and runs through September 4. Lollapalooza rolls into town from August 3-6, and the Chicago Jazz Festival runs from August 31 to September 3. In the heart of the summer, the alfresco Millenium Park Summer Film Series and the Millenium Park Summer Music Series are free and run throughout July and August.


SOPHY Hyde Park, the 98-room boutique hotel on the historic South Side, is at the center of it all. It is the ideal base camp for summer cultural adventures in Chicago. The hotel’s restaurant, Mesler Chicago, has become Hyde Park’s gathering place for guests and neighborhood residents, who come for dinner and have made Mesler’s Weekend Brunch a local institution. The Sanctuary, the alfresco-shaded lounge offering cocktails and light fare beside firepits and under twinkle lights, is where to sample Margarita Flights, with Happy Hour every weekday from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The last Wednesday of the month in The Sanctuary features the Mesler Mix & Mingle Summer Series from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm, uniting the community and local partnerships. On July 26, it will be Dutchess the DJ, FunkyTown Brewery, and Chicago’s own Diego Ross, Co-Founder of the Leaders 1354 urban streetwear company. Throughout the summer there will be special guests from Disbelief & Astral Tequila, Uncle Nearest Whiskey, and visual artist Raspy Rivera.

It includes two nights’ accommodations in a Deluxe King or Double Queen guestroom and one $50 credit to the hotel’s trend-setting Mesler Chicago restaurant.
