What’s WHIM?

Welcome to WHIM CHICAGO, where IMMERSIVE ART, UNIQUE COCKTAILS, and CAPTIVATING PERFORMANCE create unforgettable moments of discovery. WHIM embarks audiences across a path of dreamlike theatricals that immerse the individual into an eclectic range of perspectives.

First opening in July 2022, we completely reimagined our interior space with a philosophy that placing art on top of art will create a multimedia fusion unlike anything else in our community. Step into WHIM’s LOBBY OF SECOND CHANCES, where an artistic explosion of creations made out of found objects offers a lively space to lift a glass, celebrate the day, and connect with others.

Then wander into our ENCHANTED FOREST, where a giant enchanted tree towers over a stage for live performances and events. The main course? EXPERIENCE WHIM, worlds made of immersive art are waiting to be discovered.
Walking through our doors, you enter a space dedicated to creating unique moments, together. Start creating your moments.
