Chicago is one of the most exciting and buzzing destinations in the United States. The Windy City is known for its diverse cultural landscape, as well as for its incredibly active night life. In particular, the Gold Coast area is well known for it’s history of luxury. The neighborhood used to be a former haven for the city’s richest. The wealthy and the powerful of the 50s had their homes there, but eventually the area turned into a night life district, with bars, clubs, restaurants and other attractions coming to the light.

In recent years, the area has acquired the rather funny nickname of “The Viagra Triangle”.

The district owes its names to the fact that many older, wealthier gentlemen use to scour the bars, restaurants and clubs around the triangle in order to look for young ladies to accompany them. Most people poke fun at the age difference, implying that these older gentlemen wouldn't be able to “seal the deal” without a little help from a certain little blue pill!

Hooking up aside, there are many exciting things to do in the Viagra Triangle, including experiencing some of the best wine and food in the City!

Luxury within your reach: Discover the Gold Coast!

If you thought this was an article about Australia, forget down under! This article is all about Chicago’s very own Gold Coast. Although the waves of the Pacific Ocean are quite far away, there is definitely a lot to look forward if you are visiting Chicago. The Illinois city is famous throughout the world for its arts, culture, beauty and entertainment, and the Gold Coast area is most definitely one of the city’s most pulsating heartbeats. The Gold Coast started out as a wealthy residential neighborhood and eventually evolved into a true mecca for local foodies (as well as visitors). Locals love to party deep into the night: this is the reason why it is so easy to actually find restaurants and bar that are open until very late, such as The Lodge, an establishment that closes its doors at 4am, the last stop for those who really want to make the most out of their nights and refuse to leave without yet another glass! You don't have to stay up until the early hours in the morning to enjoy yourself: the Viagra Triangle is perfect for lovers of fine dining, and fine wine!
