The epicenter for high design and luxury goods, The Merchandise Mart is located in the heart of a city that is home to prestigious fine art institutions, world-class museums, award-winning architecture, professional entertainment venues and diverse restaurant offerings. The Mart spans two entire city blocks on the bank of the Chicago River, where the Loop meets the River North gallery district—the city’s largest concentration of public and private galleries. The historic building welcomes three million visitors annually to 30 major shows and more than 300 conferences, seminars and special events.
Just blocks from The Merchandise Mart, it is a leisurely walk to the famous Magnificent Mile where exclusive shops and four-star hotels bustle with activity from the Tribune tower to North Avenue Beach. Equally close is Millennium Park, Chicago’s newest architectural landmark which features celebrated public art works and boasts breathtaking views of both the lakefront and the skyline.
