People tend to check in during these times:
great lunch options here! an entire food court on the second level
Second-largest building in the world; it actually has its own zipcode! Wholesale furniture and furnishings store for buyers all over the world w/ 600 permanent showrooms, and a great bookstore.
On the second floor lobby, the Argo Tea and Starbucks compete in neighboring storefronts. Argo has better drinks but SBux has free WiFi. Sit in the lobby and enjoy both.
Some of the best people watching in the city
At one time this was the largest building in the world.
The stairwells here smell like one of those old battleships you toured as a kid. Inhale deeply.
Go to the Artisan Cellar on the first floor and get an Illy Espresso or an Americano. Awesome and the folks are nice.
Take unnecessary elevator trips during Neocon and give out bad directions "try the better coffee place on the 8th floor. No line!"
Friend me if you need help getting on the wi-fi network, I supply support for it as well am responsible for installing it over 4 years ago. Possibly the largest contiguous wifi hotspot in the US
If you enjoy drinking tea go to Argo Tea & try there hot Chai... I love it
Cheap parking at the corner of Hubbard and Wells via Spothero
I heart public transit.
get your shoes shined on the second floor near the food court
The tables outside Jamba Juice are a great place to watch all the pretty girls on their way to and from work. Trench coat optional.
The elevators here are way too damn slow.
Design + Fashion + Huge Metro Hub = Some of the most beautiful people in Chicago work or pass through here everyday. Throw me a thumbs up if you agree :-)
Don't get lost.
Ready to rock it out with Ellen Degeneres...
Love the free wifi...thanks again Starbucks!
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I am a decor nut and I really wished I could have worked with this building for @FIJIhunt but they close early on Saturday.
If you want a quiet space to relax, check out the lounge on the 14th floor.
Starbucks has a great location with a lounge for customers at the Merchandise Mart.
Sample sale on floors 6, 14 and 15.
The busts in front of the Merchandise Mart remind me of Game of Thrones.
Check out the Dream Home for cool home decorating ideas.
The food court bathrooms are disgusting
Masters of None in the Etsy Pavilion for The One of A Kind Show sells the best stuff!
Starbucks on the NE corner has one of the fastest serve times in the loop
On a rainy day, wander the showrooms of this gigantic "mart"
Stop by from 6am - 10 am December 15th for free hot cocoa. Say the word LAYER for a special gift
Polite ppl here... they speak to you even if they don't know you... Wi-fi is great too!!
There is no down escalator from the second floor, just take the stairs that are hidden by the ATMs
Just checked out the Antiques Fair. Really great things! Oct1-4. Check it out.
Wonder if @fijijudge15 does yoga here often? Great location if so! Very scenic! #fijihunt
Best baristas at the starbucks in the Mart
Plenty of really nice shops here! Also check the out the stautes!
Fabric, sofas, and vanities. Oh my!
If you smell something funky, it's probably Nake K.
This place is huge! A good food court on the second floor,
Come visit Foodstuffs' Pastry Cafe and grab a specialty cocktail
The best coffee in the building is from the shop in 1871 on the 12th floor.
Nick's Fishmarket Bar and Grill...the food there is amazing!
Pretty much a desert in Saturdays
Make sure you have a sound escape plan when visiting. Got a parking ticket because I couldn't figure out how to exit the building in time :( parking meter vultures
Don't bother trying to access the wifi...
The shows here has the best staff. I love the all black uniforms. They are extremely friendly and helpful.
