There are many places for great networking in Chicago. One of my favorites though is Biggs Mansion. It’s a cigar bar, one of the best ones in the world. But, even more so, it’s a social connection place. This is a great place to meet clients or prospects because it’s quiet, inviting and very conducive to creating the kind of friendships that can last a lifetime.
Another great place for connecting is The Metropolitan Club located in the Willis Tower. Here, I am on the board and have been a member fo a number of years now. I have also found this club to be an exceptional place for networking and hosting events. The staff is wonderful and I find the club to be another oasis to build the kind of social connections that make the difference in one’s professional life.
