Real Estate is essentially 24/7/365 & sometimes a gal just needs a break. Sometimes you need to just take a moment & do what makes you HAPPY. So when I saw a giant smiley face being installed on the side of a vacant warehouse while driving to an appointment.. I had to investigate.
To my surprise, a multi-sensory, interactive pop-up experience was coming to town & I knew it was going to be something I had to do to – & I was right, it was amazing.
“HAPPY PLACE was created because we BELIEVE that our world today can use a lot more happiness. To make this DREAM come true, we set out on a journey to create a special place where anyone who walks in is surrounded by all things HAPPY. The first HAPPY PLACE in Los Angeles has been nothing short of a DREAM for us and now we are excited to take the Happiness on Tour and visit cities all around the world. Watching so many visitors of all ages from all around the world come through our doors and leave with a smile, made us WONDER, why not spread the HAPPY? So decision was MADE to take HAPPY PLACE on a worldwide tour with our second stop, the great city of CHICAGO!!!
Founded by Jared Paul and opened originally on November 20, 2017, this massive pop-up experience is filled with larger than life size installations, multi-sensory immersive rooms, and dozens of moments curated to Capture Your Happy. Visited by more than 100,000 guests during our SOLD-OUT run in Los Angeles, the highly anticipated HAPPY PLACE Chicago launch will bring smiles to thousands more. Highlights include: dancing in the middle of world’s largest indoor Confetti Dome, jumping off of a larger than life double rainbow into a pot of happiness, and posing inside HAPPY PLACE‘s signature rubber ducky bathtub of fun! and let’s not forget 7-foot stilettos made of a million candies and 6-foot-tall X and O letters made out of thousands of tiny mirrors, surrounded by a wall of one thousand red lips!!!” – Happy Place
Unexpectedly located along Elston Ave. in Noble Square, it’s impossible to not be HAPPY when visiting this exhibit & it’s 13 brightly-colored, highly interactive rooms.
Originally only here for a short time, HAPPY PLACE announced that they are extending their stay until September 3, 2018 – So grab some friends, charge your phone, & come “capture your happy” or at least some quality content for instagram.
