Michigan Avenue

Now open

Chicago’s creative roots run deep. It’s where house music and rock and roll first took the stage. Where world-famous architecture lives. And where contemporary art thrives. Along the Chicago riverfront where the city was founded, we’re opening Apple Michigan Avenue. A space for the next generation of creative pioneers to come together, connect, and share their talent.

Where ideas sing

To celebrate the grand opening, we partnered with two renowned Chicago artists to create “Where Ideas Sing.” This city anthem was written and performed by hip-hop artist Saba, and his lyrics were brought to life by artist Matthew Hoffman. The spirit of this collaboration, like Apple Michigan Avenue itself, was inspired by the creativity and energy of Chicago.
