Time Out says

The Shops at North Bridge, previously Westfield North Bridge, is a favorite for young and old shoppers alike as it houses a wide breadth of stores. Classic houses of chic attire such as Nordstrom sit near newer fashion stores, such as ZipFit Denim. The food choices are exception to the standard of excellence of the shops, including the impossibly decadent Candyality and the delicious restaurant, The Purple Pig.

What’s on

“Prince: The Immersive Experience”

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to say that a purple-hued world has opened up on Michigan Avenue, thanks to the arrival of a new Prince-themed immersive exhibition inside the sprawling Shops at North Bridge complex. Step inside to experience everything from a lilac-scented imitation of the bathroom in the “When Doves Cry” music video to a realistic version of Prince’s Paisley Park studio, painstakingly recreated with details like a shelf stocked with the 5-Hour Energy shots Prince kept on hand for recording sessions. And because this is an immersive experience, many of the rooms are equipped with some kind of interactive element, whether you prefer to experiment with sound mixing “Let’s Go Crazy” in the studio, take a personality quiz to get a custom playlist of Prince’s deep cuts or pose for photos atop a replica of the famous “Purple Rain” motorcycle.
