There’s nothing quite like having your signature spot in the city. That one bar or restaurant you can always count on for a good time. But what if your favorite spot could bring both your top dishes and consistent service, along with a new experience every time you came in? Fremont Chicago {15 West Illinois Street, Chicago; 312.874.7270} is doing just that. Fremont Chicago is switching everything up, changing the entire the restaurant based on a theme. Each month, guests can indulge in new cocktails, bites, and even new décor. Come in this week to experience Spring Break, but mark your calendars for April, as the restaurant will be showcasing ‘Raining Rosé’ to kick off the season. We chatted Four Corners’ Marketing Manager, Tonia Rudny, to discuss the rotating atmosphere.

DiningOut: How will the restaurant be transformed each month? 

Tonia Rudny: Boasting whimsical themes inspired by pop culture and timely happenings, the restaurant and bar will drastically change its décor, music, DJ attractions, and specialty food and drink items to provide guests with a continually rotating program. Fremont has enlisted production and design company, Ivan Carlson, to convert the space into ‘Spring Break’ for March, complete with Tiki huts, lifeguard stations, deck chairs, glow sticks, beach balls, and blow-up floaties.
