Your Galentine's Day Guide
Show your friends some love this February! Whether you decide to bundle up for a movie night, bake all day or adventure out into Chicago, keep reading for MODA's ultimate Galentine's Day guide.
WHAT TO DO
❤️ Vintage movie night at Music Box Theater. Do you and your friends love independent films? Old movies? Foreign flicks? This 1920s era theater offers an endless roster of alternative films (with the occasional blockbuster scattered here and there) and holds frequent midnight screenings and film festivals.
❤️ Book appointments at Cowshed spa at Soho House. With midterms in full swing, we could all use a little TLC. Cowshed's chic and laid-back atmosphere affords you and your friends the perfect opportunity to relax! Opt for a manicure, quick massage or their signature facial!
❤️ Take a cocktail making class together at the Koval Distillery. Slightly north of Wrigley Field, the Koval distillery specializes in delicious and one-of-a-kind drinks!
❤️ Impromptu photoshoot at the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Who doesn't love flowers and taking photos with friends? Step out of the cold and into Lincoln Park's lush and lively gardens.
❤️ A night out dancing at Green Mill Jazz Club. Great live music, affordable drinks and the perfect excuse to get dressed up, Green Mill is a local favorite dating back to the Prohibition era.
WHERE TO EAT
❤️ Mimosa brunch at 25 Degrees Restaurant. If the lemon ricotta pancakes, banana pecan French toast or a breakfast quesadilla on their menu aren't enough to convince you to go, check out their signature spiked shakes and sodas and fruity list of cocktails.
❤️ Split sushi over sake bombs at Enso Sushi & Bar. With great music and an endless drink list, Enso is the perfect spot for a girls night and just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Wicker Park.
❤️ Creative cocktails at The Aviary. If you're willing to splurge, The Aviary's a la carte dining options and out of this world cocktails are a great way to end a night out.
❤️ Snap a coveted "Rosé All Day" group photo at The Hampton Social. There's no better escape from the Chicago chill than a group brunch against the backdrop of The Hampton Social's beach themed digs. Perfect for lovers of seafood and rosé (and your Instagram-obsessed friend).
❤️ Dessert and drinks at RM Champagne. The perfect place for great conversation and catching up, RM Champagne is also located in the heart of the Fulton Market neighborhood, which is home to plenty of other amazing dining options.
