About the magazine

Chicago magazine has been a part of the fabric of the city since 1970, chronicling the people, places and events that shape our world. The award-winning magazine and website is known for its sharp profiles, insightful reporting and useful guides such as “Top Doctors” and “Best New Restaurants.”

Chicago magazine is among the most highly honored city magazines in the nation, continuously winning awards from the City and Regional Magazine Association, the Society of Publication Design and the prestigious National Magazine Awards from the American Society of Magazine Editors, where the magazine was a finalist for General Excellence in 2017.

A part of Tribune Publishing, Chicago reaches more than 1 million readers a month.

Our reach extends through our unique partnerships with clients for events and promotions such as the highly-anticipated Secret Supper dining series, our annual Barrel Night event for whiskey aficionados, our annual restaurant event that celebrates the city’s vibrant food scene and our new virtual cooking show In The Kitchen, where our readers can cook along with an acclaimed local chef in their own kitchens.
