The Chicago Board of Trade Building, which was designed and built in 1930, has a more atmospheric appearance, with only a small area on the first floor for viewing. Look at the design and find that the design is not bad, and the details are very design. Old Hei at the door would like to recommend us to visit, pay a visit, no time.
The board of trade is secretly home to my favorite bar- Ceres. But be warned though, the drinks are cheap, strong, and they close at 8ish (b/c everyone is done by then). Only open during the week, this is where the traders hang. Drinks don't come mixed, ie. if you order a jack and coke, you get a glass of whiskey and a coke on the side for about $5.
Great tour, but must see the floor in action; impressive.

Inside the Board of Trade are the agricultural trading floors that date back to the early 20th century. The floors are still used today for day traders trading future derivatives and options. The building itself is a Chicago landmark from the Art Deco period. Go inside for more detail if you love Chicago architecture and art deco details!
One of Chicago's iconic buildings. The trading floor makes for an interesting spectacle.
