In honor of our upcoming website revamp and its interactive ticketing services, a few member of our office would like to share their favorite venues in the U.S.
AJ: Terminal 5 – Last September I was visiting some friends in NYC and we went to see M.I.A. at Terminal 5 in Midtown West/Hells Kitchen. I would have to say that was probably my favorite venue that I’ve been too. The space was fairly large, especially for New York, but definitely overcrowded. This, along with the light shows and the dance music, made it that much more memorable.
Kali: The Field Museum – My favorite venue that I have been to was at the Field Museum in Chicago. My highschool’s tradition was to hold Prom there. The beautiful architecture of the building alone enhanced that special feeling of the night. Also, it was great to take breaks from dancing by going outside and having a gorgeous view of the city and Lakeshore Drive.
Jordan: Continental Club – I recently went to Austin and stumbled upon this fantastic venue. Its “hole-in-the-wall” vibe mixed with blues and cold beer made for a fantastic evening of dancing with friends. Check out their history…from Glenn Miller Band to becoming a Burlesque club, this place is just plain interesting.
Chase: Garfield Park Conservatory – One of my favorite venues is Chicago’s historic Garfield Park Conservatory. Not only can you peruse hundreds of exotic plants, but the entire conservatory is housed in a beautiful Victorian greenhouse, transporting attendees to a turn-of-the-century elegance. Add dim lights and music, and Garfield is a truly romantic place to hold an event. Hopefully it can overcome recent storm damage, because it is one of Chicago’s hidden treasures.
Have you been to any of these fantastic places? What is your favorite venue?
