About this event

Please join Illinois Science Council in its annual toast to Chicago's extraordinary Science Sector! Our 11th Science Cocktail Party is a celebration of, by, and for, our science community.

There will be smart, interesting, clever, and beautiful people (often the same people), delicious food, beer, wine, and new, crafty science-y cocktails, plus raffle prizes, a wine-pull, and very fun hands-on science experiments. It's all in the name of science and fun!

And we haven't even mentioned the venue! Our 2022 venue is private, so this is a unique opportunity for you and your guests to enjoy STUNNING 360 degree City views of the river, lake, park, and skyline! So don't forget your camera.

Special THANKS our host sponsor, Conlon Public Strategies, our beer sponsor, Metropolitan Brewing, and our dessert sponsor, Blommer Chocolate. If your company is interested in sponsorship, contact Monica at


Attire - Cocktail attire encouraged. Science-themed garb is especially welcome.

Building Entrance - Come to the building doorway on the Wacker St. side, just east of State St. In the lobby you'll be directed to the correct elevator bank, and on the 39th floor you'll make one elevator transfer to get to the party on 41.

Getting There - Public Transit 1 block from Brown/Green/Pink/Orange line stop at State & Lake; 1.5 blocks from Red line Lake stop; CTA buses #134, 135, 136 stop at the corner of Wacker & State, and buses # 2, 6, 9, 36, 62 stop 1 block south at State & Lake. For other options, check TransitChicago. In other words, super accessible.

Dinner before? - We will have tasty apps and delicious chocolate bars from Blommer for you to chisel off (not kidding) a bite of dessert. If you want a special dinner before the party, there are lots of great restaurants in the Loop area and McCormick & Schmicks is right next door.  For options and reservations, try here

This is a 21+ event

Handicap accessible - Yes, the SkyLounge is accessible.

COVID policy - **Proof of full vaccination with ID is required for attendance and will be checked at the door. All current public health protocols will be followed at the event.**

No Printed Tickets - Don't print tickets; that wastes paper. We use efficient electrons instead and will have a complete guest list at the door. When you arrive at check-in, provide your name, ID, and proof of vaccination (an image on your phone is fine).

Bonus Quote - "Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it." - Albert Einstein
