The Tropics was a pre-tiki bar located on the ground level of the Hotel Chicagoan in Chicago, Illinois.
The 21-story Hotel Chicagoan opened in 1937 with a 450 room unit that had previously been part of the Morrison Hotel complex.
The Hotel Chicagoan was sold in 1953 to the First National Bank of Chicago. They re-connected it to the old Morrison Hotel and it became re-absorbed into the original complex.
The Morrison Hotel building was razed in 1965 to make way for the 60-story One First National Plaza which was built in 1969-- now known as the Chase Tower.
It is uncertain if The Tropics opened and closed on the same dates as the Hotel Chicagoan, but according to newspaper ads it was open from at least 1940-1950.
