beloved...but not by chance

about 6 months ago i learnt of this restored establishment in downtown Chicago, and its only now i'm trawling through old emails that i came across it...

the Palmer House prides its history on 138 years and countless stories...a place that didn't become a beloved downtown Chicago hotel by chance...It did so by design...

the new 'Potters' bar has been refurbished as a homage to the modern icons who fequent the place...opened mid 2008 it has an ArtDeco men's club feel, with oversize photo's of past patrons and local heroes including Hugh Hefner to name one! i love these cheeky touches...

the ceiling tiles, the colour on the wall finishing, the furniture, the floor...to me it all exudes pure class and sophistication...i'm looking forward to another visit to chicago sometime - that leather sofa has my name on it! i wonder if they pour a good guinness...
