One of six locations across the country, TSNY Chicago educates participants of all levels in the art of flying through group trapeze sessions. The aerial academy also dapples its schedule with lyra, static trapeze, tightwire, trampoline, conditioning, and acrobatics classes, allowing students to have fun and eat unlimited servings of cloud while getting in shape.

Though the artsy, industrial vibe stays the same all day long at Artango South American Bistro, the morning and evening crowds could not be more different. During the day, diners lounge in the naturally-lit dining room to make a feast of their BYOB drinks paired with South American bistro fare. These can include traditional bistro dishes remade with South American ingredients such as quinoa, mango, and yams. Brunch dishes include chorizo eggs benedict made with Peruvian yellow pepper hollandaise or lunch dishes such as the Argentinian skirt-steak served with chimichurri sauce on a baguette. Additionally, dinner is served Thursday through Sunday and is like experiencing Buenos Aires in Chicago. Dinner includes starters such as ceviche and empanadas, ahead of entrees such as filet mignon, grilled salmon, roasted chicken, and rocoto relleno, a dish of quinoa and vegetables with a smoked provolone.
