-Three vibrant dining outlets from acclaimed local chefs
-A rooftop pool with epic skyline views
The April reveal of this Chicago hotel marked the third North American opening from this London-based hotel group, which also has stateside locations in Williamsburg and Portland (and another heading to Los Angeles this fall). Situated on the site of a former meatpacker in the city’s Fulton Market District, the hotel is footsteps away from some of the area’s best (and newest) restaurants, bars, and shops. Three categories—Snug, Roomy and Cosy—categorize the 182 rooms, which were designed by Ennismore Design Studio to exude vintage flair while reflecting the neighborhood’s industrial past. Experience that aesthetic through unfinished concrete ceilings and warehouse-style windows, along with mid-century furniture, brass bed lamps, and Marshall radios. Comfortable as they are, the rooms will likely serve as late night sanctuary only—guests will be spending most of their time at the many buzz-worthy dining outlets. Cabra is the latest from Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard, who pays homage to her recent South American travels through an array of seasonal ceviches and tiraditos. Try Cira for chef Chris Pandel’s takes on all-day Mediterranean fare (mixed grill of lamb, roasted whole turbot), and Lazy Bird for live music and a menu of 50 classic cocktails from beverage director Lee Zaremba.
