The Motel Bar
With many amenities to the 600 West Chicago building, the Motel Bar stands out as one of the gems. Inspired by sixties roadside motels, the retro décor includes lampshades that resemble giant cigarettes, orange leather booths and aluminum bar stools. The walls are exposed brick, ceilings are vaulted and the location of the kitchen made running the black iron ductwork a challenge. All heating and ventilating systems had to be run through this 100 year old building from the first floor to the roof.
