About Chicago

Chicago is one of those cities that get a pretty bad reputation or gets overlooked in favor of its flashier counterparts like New York, San Francisco, or Toronto, but Chicago has a historic charm all of its own that comes from the hardy, diverse people that call this wonderful city their home.

With the stark and brutal weather that can affect Chicago, especially in the depths of winter, it takes a very special kind of person to live in the city. For the uninitiated, the plummeting temperatures and heavy amounts of snow and ice can come as a shock to the system and if you are not prepared, it can be dangerous.

Choosing a Chicago recording studio space may also be impacted by bad weather if you are planning it during the winter.

Recording Studio Space Options

When looking for a recording studio space in Chicago there are a few aspects to consider. Take cues from the locals on what works best in the Windy City. Let the experienced professionals of Chicago give you a hand.

  • Audio Visual
    Without audio equipment and a decent rig, there is no way that you are going to be recording an album or anything else for that matter. Think about the number of microphones you are going to need for the different instruments and artists, the plethora of cables you are going to need, and much more.

  • Catering
    Recording studio sessions can often take hours and hours and sometimes days. In order to keep everyone happy and producing their best work, make sure you have plenty of food, snacks, and coffee on hand to keep the peace. Whether you want nibbles, a buffet, packed lunches, or a full dinner - the easiest way to keep people happy is with food!

  • Decor
    If you are going to be spending a lot of time in one space in a creative atmosphere, you want everyone to feel comfortable. Bring in pieces of decor that match your artist’s vibes so that they can sit back and do what they do best.

Managing artists and keeping everything on track can be stressful, so let the pros help you out. Luckily, Chicago has a plethora of talented and experienced companies that can help you pull everything together.

Pros and Cons of Recording Studio Spaces in Chicago

Even though Chicago is a pretty amazing city, it is important to weigh up the pros and cons. Every metropolis such as this has its ups and downs, and Chicago is no different. Make sure you know all there is to know about the city before finalizing your recording studio space in Chicago.

Advantages

  • Food
    Forget what you think you know about food in Chicago. Yes, there are delicious hot dogs and Chicago-style pizza as far as the eye can see, but there is so much more. With chefs coming in from all over the world, you will not be surprised to know that there are 24 Michelin-starred restaurants in the city.

  • Landscape
    You do not have a city on the edge of one of the great lakes without the landscape looking spectacular. Especially on a crisp, clear day, the reflections of the Chicago skyline against the mighty Lake Michigan are something to behold.

  • Travel connections
    Even though it looks like Chicago is in the middle of nowhere, because of its location between the two coasts, the travel connections are pretty amazing. In fact, with the iconic Route 66, a major Amtrak line, and Chicago O’Hare airport all offering great travel options, you can get anywhere from here.

  • Architecture
    If you want to find out all the secrets of Chicago, you need only look up. Across the city, you will probably find almost every type of architecture going, with little bits of design flair poking out of the skyscraping facades.

Disadvantages

  • Crime
    Although the crime levels aren’t on the same playing field as back when Capone was running Chicago, there is still a fairly high level of crime there, especially in certain neighborhoods.

  • Weather
    As previously mentioned, the winter weather in Chicago is a snow and a chill-laden nightmare. Unless you are coming from somewhere with similarly wintery conditions, it is going to come as a big shock.

  • Traffic
    Despite the public transport network in Chicago being fairly decent by city public transport standards, most people still opt to drive, especially from the suburbs. This means the traffic around rush hour is particularly awful.

  • Parking
    Similar to the traffic aspect, the parking in the city is pretty terrible. Unless the place you work, the place you are staying, or the place you hire comes with designated parking, you are probably going to struggle.

Famous Locations in Chicago

  • Michigan Avenue
    For those who are looking to shop until you drop at some of the biggest designers, check out Chicago’s most iconic sights, or take in an amazing musical or theatrical performance, Michigan Avenue is where to go. Also known as the Magnificent Mile, this iconic street features several parks, a historic district, and a stunning bridge.

  • Navy Pier
    Looking for something a little bit more fun to do in Chicago? Wanting that beachy, holiday feel down by Lake Michigan? Then head to Navy Pier. This 3,300-foot pier is more than 50 acres of stores, restaurants, and funfair attractions. Ride the historic carousel, enjoy the Crystal Gardens, and see the sights from atop the Ferris wheel.

  • Lincoln Park
    If you are wanting to escape the hubbub of the city, Lincoln Park is a six-mile-long oasis of calm along Lake Michigan’s shoreline. As Chicago’s largest park it is home to a zoo, a museum, a conservatory, and much more.
