Historical Charm Meets Modern Sophistication
Since 1869, The Chicago Club has been the city’s premier club, offering members and guests the finest, most personalized service. Historically, the gracious atmosphere of the Clubhouse has provided the ideal setting for dining, business meetings, family celebrations, and social functions—and thus, to ensure this degree of excellence remains true today and in the future, the Club engaged Chambers to conceptualize an Interior Enhancement Plan to further elevate the member experience and interior atmosphere of various spaces.
Chambers proposed various interior enhancements to the Club including upgrades to the First Floor, Mezzanine, Business Center, and Rooftop Terrace. To further strengthen the Club’s position as the “venue of choice” for members, Chambers’ plan promotes spontaneity through the implementation of a newly renovated Lounge & Café, as well as updated casual areas to foster connectivity and leisure. Warm tones are peppered throughout this renovation—including hues of blue, cream, gold and wooden accents—to help create a warm welcome the moment members step through the front door.
Every design element has been thoughtfully selected to infuse modern sophistication into this historic city club. And while the design is modernized for tomorrow’s member, Chambers worked diligently to complement the Club’s preexisting architecture rather than take away from the handsome structure members know and love.
Chambers’ plan was approved by the Club and Phase One is underway. Construction for the First Floor Mezzanine and Main Floor are scheduled to be complete in spring 2020. Rooftop enhancements will begin in the fall of 2020 and will be completed in time for spring 2021.
