A glowing brasserie anchors a space that is lit from within with cozy banquettes, indoor and outdoor café style seating, stunning 40-foot floor to ceiling windows and an intimate private dining room for special celebrations.

Honoring an Icon


The 1929 Carbon & Carbide building is a 37-story landmark structure located on Chicago’s famed Michigan Avenue. Designed by the Burnham Brothers (sons of renowned American architect Daniel Burnham) as the regional office of Union Carbide and Carbon Co., the Art Deco style building was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1996. Revered for its unique shape, reminiscent of a vintage green champagne bottle reportedly symbolizing a response to the Prohibition era, the structure’s high-reaching tower façade, made of dark green terra cotta with gold leaf accents, sits atop a street facing base of polished black granite, black marble and bronze trim. Pendry Chicago brings a modern-day allure to the building’s storied history with all-new interiors and luxury amenities that comingle carefully with an appreciation for its Art Deco style and heritage.
