theWit will return this summer for the second year with its summer season that has redefined travel.

During three marquee weekend Friday and Saturday nights, ROOF on theWit will host an exclusive immersion event including cuisine, cocktails and entertainment.

“It doesn’t get much better than summer in Chicago, which is why our well-traveled team has enriched travel without having to leave this beautiful city,” says Ryan Kingston, general manager, theWit Hotel. “The JetSet events are designed to arouse all the senses of these seaside destinations through décor, music, food, libations and overall ambiance.”

The program will kick off Memorial Day weekend with a trip to Barcelona complete with food detail and cocktails.

On Friday, July 7, and Saturday, July 8, ROOF will take a trip to Costa del Sol, Spain, and the last trip will be to Lisbon on Labor Day weekend.
