The Peninsula Chicago Moments Campaign

An amazing perspective of the "Windy City", The Peninsula Chicago's film reveals the vitality of the city on the edge of Lake Michigan and known as the home of the skyscraper. The tour takes viewers from the world-class Millennium Park, the theater district and shopping along the "Magnificent Mile" to an elegant dinner party on The Peninsula Suite Terrace, the anticipation and preparation for a child's arrival and finally a Shanghai-themed soirée on The Terrace.

    Chicago has long been known for its jazz and blues music. Originally, “Chicago blues” was street corner-based music before gaining popularity and spreading throughout the city and today, the city has become known for great live music. The Peninsula Chicago is the only hotel in Chicago that features live music daily. The musicians perform from a Minstrel Gallery, located high atop The Lobby. Guests often hear live music but can’t figure out where it’s coming from until they discover the Gallery.
