The Hoxton, Chicago has opened its doors in the city’s Fulton Market District, marking the brand’s seventh hotel to launch.
The 182-bedroom property, situated on the site of a former meatpacker, is the third opening in North America for the Hoxton, following the success of The Hoxton, Williamsburg (September 2018) and The Hoxton, Portland (November 2018).
The property comprises three dining areas and drinking destinations, lively public spaces and The Apartment, a events and meeting space.
The Hoxton Chicago marks a number of ‘firsts’ for the brand, including the first rooftop pool, first foray into wellness with a studio, a ground-level retail unit and the first location of the Hoxton’s new coworking concept.
Bedrooms are designed by Ennismore Design Studio and come in three categories: Snug,
Roomy and Cosy and draw inspiration from the area’s industrial past with unfinished concrete ceilings and warehouse-style windows complemented by two-toned walls of white and rose.
All rooms have mid-century furniture, artwork curated by local gallerists Johalla Projects, beds with custom bedding created by artist Cody Hudson, dark green or brown leather headboards, brass bed lamps, bespoke rugs, Marshall radios, and walk-in showers with herringbone tilework.
Ennismore has partnered with Boka Restaurant Group for the hotel’s bars and restaurants, with each one designed by AvroKO in collaboration with Ennismore Design Studio.
On the rooftop, Cabra Cevicheria, an open-air Peruvian-inspired restaurant is helmed by chef, Stephanie Izard.
On the ground floor, Cira is an all-day is modern Mediterranean restaurant by chef Chris Pandel serving breakfast, lunch, dinner seven days a week, as well as weekend brunch.
Lazy Bird is an intimate cocktail bar with a menu of 52 classic cocktails.

The Hoxton, Amsterdam launched in 2015, and The Hoxton, Paris in summer 2017.
