Pros and Cons of Award Ceremonies in Chicago

Chicago is top-rated when it comes to just about all of the "big city things" including sports, culture, and food. Like any other major metropolitan area in the nation, The Second City has both advantages and disadvantages.


  • Excellent food
    Chicago is home to 24 Michelin-starred dining establishments and 58 restaurants that have been accorded the Michelin Bib Gourmands award. Your awards ceremony menu is taken care of with a catering company in Chicago handling it.

  • Diversity
    Besides being home to a multicultural community, Chicago's 70-plus neighborhoods showcase the city's diversity. Each neighborhood has a unique feel and identity which means that you can find an awards ceremony venue in Chicago that reflects the theme of your occasion.

  • The culture
    Chicago hosts more than 100 festivals across its 65 theatres, 10 opera houses, 13 ballet centers, and other venues. You'll have a selection of suitable awards ceremony venues in Chicago for your event.

  • An effective public transit system
    Most neighborhoods in Chicago have everything you could need within walking distance but if you need to run errands, the city's public transit system proves highly effective. Your guests will have the choice of about 130 bus routes and 145 train stations.

  • Sports
    Professional baseball, soccer, football, and basketball teams hail from Chicago. The sports frenzy makes the city an ideal place to host a sports-related activity or event.


  • Rough winters
    Winter weather in Chicago involves below-freezing temperatures, blistering winds, and grey skies. The howling winds and flooding that happens once the snow melts don’t provide the best conditions to host an event.

  • Traffic
    Chicago ranks as the third-worst in terms of traffic across America. You'll have to schedule your activities around rush hour and try to avoid venues near bottleneck hotspots like Interstate 290/294.

  • Parking
    Estimates have it that the city's residents put in an average of 56 hours each year looking for parking spots. Go for an awards ceremony venue in Chicago with ample parking space or at the very least, make arrangements for it if the location doesn't provide it.

  • It's an expensive city
    Compared to other big cities, the cost of housing is affordable in Chicago. However, when compared to the national average the cost of living in this city is higher. You'll feel the pinch with costs related to transportation, utilities, and groceries.

  • Pollution
    The city's waterways are known for their history with pollution, and some homeowners have had the unpleasant experience of dealing with the aftermath of basements flooded with sewage. It should guide your decision when considering outdoor awards ceremony venues in Chicago.
