Pared-Down Sophistication at Schrager's Public Chicago

Ian Schrager unveiled the first location of his affordable, frills-free luxury hotel chain, Public, in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Previously the historic Ambassador East hotel—which housed the storied restaurant and celeb haunt, the Pump Room—Public epitomizes Schrager’s new brand of pared-down sophistication. A giant cluster of resin globe lights brightens the all-neutral restaurant (still called the Pump Room), and there’s no velvet rope in sight.
From $135. 1301 N. State Pkwy., (888) 506-3471.

Library Bar at the Public Hotel

Located in the Gold Coast area of Chicago, the Public Hotel is that perfect mix of eclectic, cool, approachable and fun. The rooms are minimal in design, and due to their smallish nature, prices to stay at this historic spot will not break your budget at all. The Pump Room restaurant, which channels the glitz and glam of the 30's and 40's, offers an outstanding menu of choice while the surroundings make your food taste that much better. And before or after dinner, you can visit the Library Bar (pictured above) to imbibe in the choice libations that are mixed, poured and swirled to your palette's delight.
