Ian Schrager’s new hotel PUBLIC Chicago is an entirely new class of hotel that addresses the needs of today's sophisticated and savvy guest. Centrally located in the exclusive Gold Coast, steps from the shopping and nightlife of Michigan Avenue, The Magnificent Mile, Oak Street, Rush Street, Lincoln Park and the Lake Michigan Beaches, the hotels fundamental attributes are effortless and timeless purist design; spot-on, personalized service, lasting comfort with complete functionality, all at a tremendous value. The hotel features the re-imagined PUMP ROOM Restaurant, with a new food concept by world renowned and James Beard award winning Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The Restaurant offers re-invented PUMP ROOM classics and simple, delicious “farm to table” favorites in a relaxed, comfortable environment. Each evening the Restaurant’s bar transforms into a supper club that re-captures the glamour the 30’s and 40’s with a modern twist. The Living Room, Library & Coffee Bar and Screening Room, provide incredible spaces for socializing, dining, drinking, people watching, work and fun both day and night. PUBLIC Express is an exciting new concept that allows guests to enjoy specially designed “packaged” gourmet meals by Jean-Georges. These meals may be enjoyed in your room, or “on the go”. The 24 hour Lobby minibar offers snacks and beverages to customize your minibar, along with personal and PUBLIC branded items. The 285 spacious and over-sized guest rooms and suites are designed in a soothing "no-color" color palette.
