Restoration Hardware at the Three Arts Cafe, Chicago.
One of my favorite and aesthetic places to spend a morning, afternoon or evening is Restoration Hardware in the Three Arts Club at 1300 N. Dearborn Chicago.
Set inside the atrium of RH is a coffee house, wine bar and American kitchen. This gorgeous setting features plush sofas with ample space, contemporary tables, candle lanterns and a central fountain, under the sparkle of a full-size chandelier. The atmosphere is a mix of couples, working lunches, families and individuals working on their laptop while sipping a perfectly pretty coffee.
I like to take a magazine get a coffee and read for a while and then walk the furniture store for inspiration. RH is anything but your run-of-the-mill furniture shop, the 70,000-square-foot store is located within the 3 Arts Club, a building dating back to 1914 where women once gathered to study the arts.
Whether you want to have lunch, a snack or relax with a glass of wine, the Three Arts Cafe is the place to go when you’re in town.
The food operations here are a collaboration between RH CEO Gary Friedman and Brendan Sodikoff, the Chicago restaurateur behind Doughnut Vault, Gilt Bar and Au Cheval.
The exterior and interior of the building is something you appreciate more when you visit. Having lived in London for a decade I have been spoiled with retail buildings that have the power to make you stay and absorb everything. For example, The Belstaff flagship store on Bond Street, Selfridges on Oxford Street, Liberty's off of Regent Street. RH at the Three Arts Cafe holds this same feeling. The entire space is evocative, entirely luxurious and manages to be 'the place to be seen at' without trying too hard.
