The Cultural Center has so much to do: free art exhibits, classical music concerts, theatre, and family events. It’s located right across from Millennium Park and right off the Washington/Wabash Brown Line stop. I love looking at all the different art galleries from new, interesting artists. Some people find art museums boring, but I find them interesting. They’re a great way to expand your knowledge and appreciate different cultures. The art exhibits are always changing, so you can see something new each time you go there. If you’re someone who is interested in doing art or working in the field, they also offer lectures and workshops by gallery curators and artists.
The building is absolutely beautiful, especially on the very top floor. The Cultural Center is known for its stunning architecture, and they even offer guided architecture tours to learn about it more in depth. Overall, it’s a great place to go to learn more about Chicago and broaden your horizons. And you can take a great Instagram pic too!
If you have classes mainly in the Loop campus, Dollop is great because it is located a block away from campus right off the Harold Washington Brown Line. I love the quiet and comfy environment, it's a perfect way to chill out after classes and get some homework done.
2) Hero Coffee
Another Loop campus staple for most students, located right on campus in an alley across from the DePaul Center, this is the perfect place to go when you're running late to class and need to grab some coffee because it's so close by.
3) Goddess and the Baker
Goddess and the Baker is a really cute cafe that doesn’t just serve coffee but really cute desserts too! They're known for their rainbow cake and gelato. I love their cozy environment and homey feel, it’s a great place to go when you feel homesick!
If you're looking for the most Instagramable coffee, Limitless has you covered with their glitter lattes! They're regular lattes with a glitter design on top. Located in the west loop, they have a really cool atmosphere that’s great for getting work done.
