Join us in the lobby on Saturday evenings  from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. for live musical performances by Columbia College Chicago students. Event is free and open to the public.

The Blackstone Beats music program is a nod to the hotel’s history. The Blackstone was famously home to the swank Mayfair Room and lively Jazz Showcase back in the day.

Visit neighboring restaurant Mercat a la Planxa during your visit. Visitors and locals are all welcome to purchase a beverage from the restaurant and kick back with a refreshing cocktail in The Blackstone’s lobby.
