All major cities worth their salt are a mix of the ancient and the modern, but few blend the two as well as Chicago. The original home of the skyscraper and the early base of Frank Lloyd Wright now holds some of America's most dazzling modern structures, from new waterfront buildings to the wildly popular Millennium Park.
Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know what's happening in the world's greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.
