Frequently, an event is only as good as the ambiance and history surrounding it. At The Portage Theater in Chicago, they provide not only a fantastic show, but an amazing venue. The theater is sizable, but not too large. It originated as a 1920’s movie theater, and has flourished into a theater of all kinds. Primarily, the Portage puts on world class bands, artists, and musicians. However, the space is available to rent for movies, parties, and other events. This really is an unique venue with its yellow and cream-colored art-deco walls and ceiling, crystal chandeliers, and cushioned chairs. It’s surely an experience that you’ll never forget.

Occupying a building that sprang up at the turn of the 20th century, the Irish American Heritage Center (IAHC) somehow manages to cram Ireland into one of Chicago’s city blocks. Work from Irish artists hangs in the building’s art gallery, books from Irish authors fill its library, Irish plays light up its 658-seat theater, and Irish food and drinks delight the crowd on the main floor at the Fifth Province Pub. The IAHC also has a knowledgeable staff of instructors, who teach classes on everything from Irish dance and music to Irish language and genealogy.
