British design icon Tara Bernerd turns her worldly, eclectic sensibility to eleven, with the loft-like, urban industrial bones of the lobby and lounge accented with warm American woods and clean, mid-century lines throughout this unique downtown Chicago hotel on the Gold Coast.
Imagine your own luxe studio in the skies overlooking the hip Gold Coast neighborhood’s leafy streets, with sweeping floor-to-ceiling vistas of the Chicago skyline and Great Lake waterscape daring you to look away.
Nico Osteria has become a bona fide hit with the Gold Coast neighbors, thanks to Chef Wu-Bower’s simple, high quality ingredients. And the Italian air carries through to the Mediterranean wines and aperitifs that underscore Salone Nico’s dramatic surroundings. Salone Nico is a welcoming gathering space, celebrating the European tradition of afternoon apertifs and low-proof cocktails. The approachable wine list features wines from Italy and Greece, as well as grower champagne, with an emphasis on small producers and older vintages.
