About The Dive:
The Chicago Athletic Association hotel is ecstatic to announce the latest installment of its “Mini-Bar” series – a recurring hotel take-over of themed pop-up bars – The Dive

This neighborhood-inspired watering hole will live inside the hotel’s former pool, welcoming respectable folk and well-meaning ruffians alike to experience a sense of familiarity, grit, and mischievousness akin to their favorite local haunt, typically unseen on Michigan Ave. After celebrating opening weekend on Saturday, August 5 – Sunday, August 6, the bar will re-open its doors each Friday and Saturday night from 5pm-10pm through August 26, always cover-free. Learn More
