We've heard that a new boutique 'hotel' has opened, Longman&Eagle, a tavern and inn tucked into the heart of Chicago.
Serving up fantastic fare amid seriously stripped-down style, the new property is a brainchild of four friends, Bruce Finkelman, Cody Hudson, Robert McAdams and Pete Toalson, who converted an old apartment building into a hip haven.
The first floor tavern features a rustic, rather monochromatic space serving up daily-inspired food sourced from local markets as well as more than 30 different kinds of whiskeys.
Featuring a wooden floor, a staggered, wood-scrap ceiling, brick walls and utilitarian pendant lighting, the industrial chic of the tavern is decidedly masculine yet undeniably cozy.
Nice Touch: The six bedrooms on the second floor all boast different design schemes but heavily feature original local art with intricate uses of wood as their mainstay. Kitsch and eclectic ephemera also find their way on the shelves, serving as a stylish surprise to guests.
