Last week saw The Hoxton, Chicago opens its doors in the heart of the city’s Fulton Market District. This marks the seventh hotel from The Hoxton family and the Chicago site offers 182 rooms, three dining and drinking destinations including an open-air rooftop Peruvian restaurant and moody basement cocktail bar. Public spaces include a double-heigh lobby, rooftop pool and The Apartment providing a unique meeting and events space.
The guest rooms have been designed to reflect the industrial past of its surroundings wiht concrete ceilings and warehouse-style windows with complimentary two-toned walls in white and rose, mid-century furniture, brass bed lamps, custom-made rugs and walk-in showers with herringbone tilework.
The hotel’s restaurants and bars are ran in collaboration with Chicago’s Boka Restaurant Group (Girl & the Goat, Boka, Momotaro, Bellemore). On the rooftop, Cabra Cevicheria, an open-air Peruvian-inspired restaurant helmed by renowned chef, Stephanie Izard, offers seasonal ceviches and tiraditos. On the ground floor, Cira is an all-day is modern Mediterranean restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, dinner seven days a week, as well as weekend brunch. Those looking for something stronger should head downstairs to Lazy Bird, an intimate cocktail bar with a menu offering 52 classic cocktails. The bar will be a great late-night spot, with live jazz, rock and soul on select evenings.
Later this summer, The Hoxton’s co-working concept will roll out at the property. Set over two floors, the brand’s much-loved “lobby culture” will be morphed into dedicated work space, with desks, studios and meeting spaces available for freelancers, small businesses and travelers, welcoming members with plenty of perks when it opens this summer.
