Meet the Valentijn raincoat. We designed it exclusively in collaboration with custom clothiers Sene just for you. It’s part modern mac, part fishtail parka and entirely ready to shelter you from any lingering showers in style. And because each is custom-tailored, yours will be the only one like it.
Things to do for May 24, 2017
Shake Shake and Kuma’s Corner Enter the Ultimate Burger Neighborhood
There’s a Late-Night Noodle Window in Here, TooBy Sarah Freeman
Two Very Important Burgers Move Into the West Loop
It’s a debate as old as time: smashed or un-smashed burgers? In one corner, Shake Shack’s lovingly compressed Shackburger. In the other, Kuma’s Corner’s thick patty. Related: both burger shops just opened West Loop locations. How convenient.
The Chicago-Themed Hotel Lincoln Park Deserves
Meet Hotel Versey, where World’s Fair posters, vintage vinyl and lava lamps fill the lobby. Where the rooms are decorated in photos of Wrigley Field and other Chicago icons. Where they’ll open a restaurant and bar come fall. Where you get where they’re going with this.
Let’s Get You a Custom Summer Suit, Shall We...
The Tie Bar is doing things. More specifically, the Tie Bar has two new services in Lincoln Park. Its Made to Measure program will now customize full suits for you, and in-home closet style consultations are now a thing there. This bodes quite well for your body and its general surroundings.
Meet River North’s Late-Night Noodle Window
If you’re craving handmade, wok-fried noodles between the hours of 10pm and midnight, we hope you’re near Imperial Lamian. Its new walk-up window serves snack-sized noodles, dumplings and buns into the wee hours. Bonus: you don’t have to pay for any of it on Friday night. It’s less free after that.
Cocktails. Boozy Popsicles. Views.
Cindy’s, that rooftop restaurant on the 13th floor of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, is almost perfect. One thing it was lacking, though, was an al fresco bar specializing in large format cocktails and rosé. So they decided to change that, and also throw in some boozy popsicles, too. Good moves all around.
