Pendry Hotels & Resorts today announced the opening of Pendry Chicago. Located in the heart of the Loop neighborhood, Pendry Chicago is a reimagination of the iconic 1920s-era Carbide & Carbon Building, a true American Art Deco landmark. Pendry Chicago delivers 364 newly redesigned guestrooms and suites; completely renovated and reinvigorated public spaces including the hotel's signature modern French brasserie and cafe, Venteux; the intimate Bar Pendry; The Billiard Gallery, and a summer rooftop bar, set 24 stories above Michigan Avenue to debut June 25 as Château Carbide, a day-to-night experience delivering the lifestyle of the Côte d'Azur with a very Chicago spin. The hotel offers 13,000 square feet of diverse meetings and event space, a state-of- the-art fitness center, and a curated art collection featuring works from both world-renowned and local Chicago artists.
Located near a dynamic collection of cultural attractions, corporate headquarters, and alongside Chicago's famed River Walk and the Magnificent Mile, Pendry Chicago is the ideal home base to explore the city. The Burnham Brothers- designed Carbide & Carbon Building, famed for its unique Champagne bottle design is composed of luxurious polished black granite, green and gold Terracotta with bronze trim, topped off with an ornate cap of 24-karat gold leaf.
Steeped in history and anchored in style, the complete reimagination of the building's public spaces was led by Alessandro Munge and the award-winning design collective, Studio Munge. In a bold signature statement, a dynamic black-and-white striped floor leads arriving guests to the luminescent reception parlor, adorned with works by Amsterdam based artist, Arnout Meijer. The artwork features an ongoing exploration of perception and light, elegantly and playfully contrasting the classic details of the lobby that pays homage to both the past and present.
