On Randolph Street in the Fulton Market neighbourhood, surrounded by restaurants and galleries, Soho House Chicago occupies a six-storey former belt factory known as the Allis building. It combines a rooftop pool, screening room, gym and boxing ring with 40 bedrooms plus outposts of Chicken Shop and Pizza East, a Cowshed spa and Neville barber, and the Allis Bar. High ceilings provide uninterrupted views of the Chicago skyline, while subtle references to the building’s turn-of-the-century heritage come through in the furnishings and fixtures.

 

 

Design Director Vicky Charles explains "The design for Soho House Chicago was building-led. It’s an industrial warehouse building and we really started with the layers from that. It’s got beautiful finishes, big windows, and we started to build on that and then move it on – add all the softness in."

 

 

Vicky adds "We didn’t use a lot of pattern, it’s not frou-frou, there are lots of velvets and mohairs, jewel colours and rich finishes on this industrial background. Every building is different, but we always try to make that ‘home from home’ feeling, that eclectic-ness, there are some staples that we always use. There’s always vintage in every House."

 

 

 

A familiar sight in Soho House Chicago's Allis Bar is our distinctive black and white Burleigh china. Burleigh is produced at the Victorian Middleport factory in Stoke on Trent - the heart of Staffordshire pottery country - using 19th century tools and techniques. Each piece is decorated by hand so no two pieces are the same. Burleigh pottery is made from pure English Earthenware and is dishwasher proof and microwave safe.

 

 


The bedrooms and main spaces at Soho House Chicago are lit with lamps that have been inspired by vintage industrial lighting and are designed to sit comfortably anywhere in your home. Materials like brass, leather, wood and frosted glass create a soft, ambient light which makes for a cosy, relaxed atmosphere.
