Pendry Hotels & Resorts continues its U.S. expansion with the launch of the Pendry Chicago. The 364-key hotel is housed within the Carbide & Carbon Building, an Art Deco landmark, newly revitalized by designer Alessandro Munge of Toronto-based Studio Munge to embody modern luxury.

Drawing inspiration from the vibrancy of its position in the Loop, Pendry Chicago welcomes both visitors and locals with public spaces that accentuate the architectural legacy of the 91-year-old structure. An extensive art collection infuses character across the property, which features a fitness center and 13,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Black and white tiles span the floors of the hotel’s public spaces for uniformity, while artwork by Dutch artist Arnout Meijer explores the interplay of light and perception in the lobby, accenting the juxtaposition of classic and new. On the ground floor, the contemporary, 4,000-square-foot brasserie Venteux evokes warmth and elegance with amenities like a Champagne and oyster bar. Bathed in soft amber light, circular banquettes populate the dining room, where 40-foot-tall floor-to-ceiling windows frame vistas of iconic Chicago architecture. An airy indoor-outdoor café is also attached. “We are bringing Chicago a flavor of France and Provence—going beyond clichés,” Munge says. “It is about creating an informal sense of familiarity and comfort with materials and design details that make the guests feel like the venue has been established forever.” Accessed through heavy drapery, the dark and moody Bar Pendry also showcases the art collection, anchored by a double-sided fireplace. Château Carbide sits atop the Pendry Chicago on the 24th floor to provide a convivial outdoor summer pop-up accented by striped loungers. Accommodations are restored and reinvigorated with a contemporary palette of warm minimal tones and soothing finishes as well.
