Summertime in Chicago buzzes with energy and excitement! And the North American Bridge Championships (NABC) will only enhance that feeling. The NABC offers the opportunity to enjoy bridge at all skill levels, from newcomer to advanced, daily.

The Summer NABC will be held at the Chicago Hilton located at 720 S. Michigan Avenue. The Hilton is located within walking distance to many Chicago attractions, so before or after you play; enjoy some sights and sounds of Chicago. Step outside the front door and walk through Grant Park to Chicago’s Lakefront, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium or Soldier Field.

One thing bridge players enjoy is lots of dining options!  In Chicago, dining is an activity in itself, with more than 5,500 restaurants that line the culinary landscape and boast star chefs and endless accolades.  The Hilton Chicago boasts its own wonderful dining experiences with 720 South Bar and Grill, Kitty O’Sheas (authentic Irish pub) and Snax, a gourmet market.

Make sure to stop by the lobby bar after the evening session to meet and get to know bridge players from all over the world. You may see the players you read about in The Bulletin!
