It's been awhile since news originally broke on Soho House Chicago. But today the project is getting more real, as word is coming down that the London-based private club and hotel is set to open this summer following ongoing construction in the old Chicago Belting Factory.
The hotel will still have three restaurants and bars available to the public on the ground floor: Two street-facing restaurant concepts imported from London and one bar and lounge. Pizza East will bake "ciabatta-style" pies in wood-burning ovens in an open kitchen, Chicken Shop focuses on rotisserie chickens, and Allis Bar, named for the family that owned the factory, will feature "a well-edited selection of wine, craft beers, and finely made cocktails."
There are two other areas only for Soho House members and hotel guests: A "club floor" with a drawing room, pantry bar, club bar and house kitchen and grill; and a rooftop bar and kitchen with an 80-foot swimming pool. Apparently it pays to be a member.
This is all coming this summer within feet of Randolph Row and across the street from Brendan Sodikoff's Green Street Smoked Meats.
