Went to the iconic Oriental Theater to see Gloria & Emilio Estefan- Bio/Musical- "Get on Your Feet". The evening didn't start too well, (as we) started with Dinner at Carson's- 'MEH' (I tackle-in another review) and the show. *Reminder* Downtown Parking is Costly folks & a hassle. Either be prepared to pay through the nose or research discounted parking. (we... More

Yesterday we saw On Your Feet and got tickets with the VIP option. This was so much fun! The theatre is do iconic! With VIP you have access to open bar and light snacks, you also have access to VIP bathrooms and then they put out another spread at intermission. Staff were very friendly!

The Oriental is a wonderful theatre venue. As soon as you walk in the doors, you are blown away by the beautiful architecture. The ornate décor seems to take you back to another place and time. The seats are arranged so that there is not one bad seat in the house. I have had the pleasure of viewing several Broadway... More

The theater was built in 1926 - and everywhere you look there is so much to see. Lots of ornate decoration - but best of all is that the venue is relatively small and wonderful site lines, so there isn't a bad seat. On Your Feet was great to see here. I'm sure it will be a great success when... More

My first visit to the Oriental Theatre was to see "On Your Feet", the story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan. There is not a bad seat in the theater and the architecture is exquisite! The theater was smaller than I expected but I loved the more intimate atmosphere. The performance was amazing--beautiful costumes, terrific choreography, and a very strong cast.

We have seen many musicals in this theater and enjoy them every time. Most recently, we saw the pre Broadway of " On Your Feet" which was a fabulous new musical and a must see. We have had seats in many locations in this theater - we think the balcony seats in this theater are very good.

This is a beautiful theater, ornate and gilded to the max. We had a wonderful evening at the theater. Beverages and snacks are allowed in the theater, which was very nice. Prices for refreshments were reasonable. I took my granddaughter to her first theater production and picked a good one with "On Your Feet" the Floria and Emilio Estefan story.... More

First, this is a beautiful old world theater with gold plate everywhere and a beautiful design. Now, On Your Feet is the story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Even if you are not a fan of their music, I have no doubt that you will love this show. It mixes music, comedy, drama and heartbreak exceedingly well. Special kudos go... More

We had a fabulous night at the theater. On Your Feet! is the story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Great music, voices and lots of funny moments. A very energizing evening.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
