At Time Out Chicago, we love to highlight the best of the city—that's why we write about exciting events and fill Time Out Market Chicago with the best restaurants in town. But we recognize that we can't spotlight everything our city has to offer, which is why at the end of each year, we turn to you.
Time Out recently asked our readers to nominate all of your favorite spots in Chicago. Predictably, you guys outdid yourselves. We were flooded with hundreds of nominations. Everything from stunning restaurants and local shops to beloved bars and exciting music venues.
It’s now time to vote in the Love Local Awards 2021. Don't be shy. See a few of your favorites places in there? Of course you do. Give them your backing. Vote now! Vote often!
Don’t forget, we’ll also offer your most-loved spots—the Time Out Love Local Award Winners of 2021—a free marketing and advertising package to help them thrive. It's the right thing to do, expecially after the past 19 months.
You have until December 17 to cast your votes. We're excited to see which businesses you choose! And if you have any questions, please refer to our FAQs.
