The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.

A seven-piece jazz band that interprets classic styles of the 1920s and 1930s, The Fat Babies were founded in 2010 by string bass player Beau Sample. These young musicians dispatch the music of Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Jelly Roll Morton, and King Oliver with verve, style, and buoyant dance rhythms. For their Festival debut, Sample leads the ensemble in an evening of story and song featuring Chicago vocalist Amanda Wolff. We’re counting chickens for any number of Animal selections, from Oliver’s Snake Rag to Morton’s Wolverine Blues.
