The Loop “open for business” this St. Paddy’s weekend
By Dan Patton, Staff Writer | March 12, 2020
About Last Knife, the Taureaux Tavern, and ROOF on theWit are among dozens of downtown venues planning to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this weekend. Offering a variety of food, drink, and activities, the neighborhood tastemakers intend to enliven the city throughout the beloved Irish-American tradition.
Residents and businesses can choose from a variety of holiday options including live music and customized Guinness pint glass engravings at The Dearborn, corned beef and cabbage at Remington’s, and Beef & Guinness Stew at State and Lake Chicago.
For those who seek a less bar-centric experience, the 360 Chicago Observation Deck, Absolutely Chicago Segway Tours, and the Gene Siskel Film Center are each hosting programs that are a little more temperate but no less fun.

To ensure that everyone stays happy and healthy, the Chicago Loop Alliance will track the latest developments about the COVID-19 situation and post necessary updates on social media.
“The Loop is open for business,” says President and CEO Michael Edwards. “We’re monitoring information from the City of Chicago, Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization to stay up-to-date on recommendations surrounding COVID-19. At this time, the Loop is still going to be the most vibrant place in the city to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.”
As always, be sure to confirm the events’ status when making your plans.
