I went to Jazzin at the Shedd last Thursday night and had an absolute blast. After walking around to see the various exhibits we spent the rest of our night listening to one of the multiple jazz bands playing on the terrace.
The view of Chicago's skyline was is one of the best in the city, and the added bonus of watching the sun is icing on the cake. There was a decent crowd when we went but it only took 5-10 minutes to find a table. The Shedd stays open an extra hour giving the experience a fun night at the museum feel.
