Our Affinity for the Affinia

January 28, 2010

 

In Mojuba’s endless pursuit to be a part of every “it” Chicago bridal event, we came across last night’s “In the Know” Bridal Show (we’re poets, too) at the Affinia Chicago and said, “Count us in.”  We donated a Groom Mojuba kit for the raffle (raffle proceeds went to Red Cross efforts in Haiti…go brides, you ladies rock the Haiti relief!) and decided-Heck, if we’re giving you a bag, Affinia Hotel, we’re definitely making an appearance at your event.  We went in only expecting some free Prosseco (which we would have been more than satisfied with), but left having fallen head over heels with the Affinia’s private event space.  Let’s start from the beginning: the event kicks off on the hotel’s second level.  The elevator opens into a beautiful room, filled with contemporary furnishings and a killer bar (obviously our first stop).  The room, while super chic, is fairly intimate, accommodating no more than 200 people.  Ready to sign a wedding contract already (being around so many brides makes you forget you’re not engaged), they tell us we still need to visit their rooftop.  For those of you who live in Chicago, it doesn’t get much better than C-view, the Affinia’s rooftop indoor/outdoor bar.  All we can say is that even as the snow fell, it was clear this rooftop was killer.  All in all, we left the Affinia a bit loosey-goosey thanks to the all-too-attentive wine servers but unwavering in that the Affinia Hotel may be the city’s hottest wedding spot.
