Once only a place for conventioneers and those looking for a cheaper cup of joe than offered at the airport, the city of Rosemont has evolved into an entertainment and shopping magnet for locals, tourists and conventioneers. Located next to O'Hare International Airport, and along major expressways, it has become a possible place to eat, play and shop in the nearby 'burb.
In addition to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center and the Allstate Arena, which hosts concerts and shows, Rosemont has a buzzing entertainment complex called Parkway Bank Park. The large outdoor venue is surrounded by several restaurants, huge movie theater and bowling alley. There's a football field-sized grass area in the center where they host many free outdoor events, ranging from ice skating to concerts and summer is especially full of events.
It's a popular place to party, especially for groups, because of the many large, loud restaurants. Teens and twenty somethings pack Sugar Factory for its over-the-top desserts and the drinking crowd likes to raise a pint at the German bar, Hofbrauhaus.
Fashionistas will love the new Fashion Outlets of Chicago with high-end design shopping at spots like Burberry, Neiman Marcus, Nike and Prada and its helpful amenities including airline baggage check-in and boarding pass issuance for those traveling through O’Hare International Airport. There's complimentary round trip Casino Shuttle service to and from Fashion Outlets of Chicago and Rosemont's first boutique hotel, The Rose Hotel, opens in fall, 2018.
