Housed in a former belt factory in Chicago’s West Loop, the Soho House pays homage to the neighborhood’s industrial past.
The London-born hospitality chain Soho House, a members’ only club hot with the techie crowd, has pushed into Chicago as part of its strategic plans for a global takeover. If its Windy City digs are any indication, this is a modern hotel chain that’s not afraid to make itself at home in a new city. The Soho House Chicago, opened this summer, is a modern, chic hotel that elegantly honors the industrial roots of its building (and neighborhood) with a few light touches, like retaining wooden panels and fire-safety glass from the original early 20th-century belt factory that once occupied the site.
