Unique vendors, drag performances, and an urban garden can all be found over 2800 sq ft up in the air!
This Friday, October 30, 2020, COMPOP market will take place on the Prairie garden terrace of the Ace Hotel. The free pop-up market has persevered through Coronavirus obstacles and remains resolute in bringing together various Black and Latinx design vendors from all over the Windy City to offer Chicagoans an exclusive one-off outdoor shopping experience. Fashion apparel, home goods, hand-made jewelry, leafy plants, and many other artisanal products will be available on the open-air terrace at Ace Hotel Chicago.
The Prairie terrace boasts a giant blue geodesic dome, a terrific urban garden, and views of Chicago. As the sun sets across the terrace you can peruse the fabulous fashionwear and pretty paraphernalia while free drag performances take place around making the outdoor soirée a particularly unique night of fun to complete your Halloween weekend. Despite cancelations, the drag artists have agreed to go ahead and perform throughout the event and though admissions are completely free donations can be made at check-in for those who enjoy the show!
The event is being put on courtesy of a collaboration between Ace Hotel Chicago, Comercio Popular, and La Luna Mezcal. In honor of Halloween and Day of the Dead, La Luna Mezcal will be concocting specialty drinks whilst Chicago’s Drag Superstars provide the entertainment. The profits from one of La Luna Mezcal’s special cocktails will be donated to Black and Brown organizations working for causes that affect BIPOC, queer, transgender, and undocumented people.
