Park Hyatt
The Park Hyatt could also pass as a stylish museum of modern art. Evidence is given already by the lobby of the 67 level building. Black columns frame an original piece by Gerhard Richter. At the restaurant you can get inspired by a glass art work by Dale Chihuly. Even in the rooms the furniture in the style of legendary designer Charles Eames radiate a contemporary chic. You might want to stay a bit longer in the bathrooms: extra-size bath tubs, candles and window seats with cinemascope views on Chicago are part of the standard. Almost every room additionally offers a free view on the famous Water Tower and Lake Michigan. Another exquisite feature is the NoMI restaurant with its starred cuisine. Advice for guests suffering from allergies: the hotel offers special rooms where all materials are anti-allergy tested and the air is cleaned through a filter system. Rooms from 270 euros.

Optimo Hats
Hats. A whole store full of hats. Panama hats, straw hats, felt hats. Hats that would have been worn by Humphrey Bogart, and hats that Justin Timberlake would make trendy again. If you have never thought about purchasing an elegant piece of headgear, you'll give in to this temptation now. Behind the counter you can see the tools made of wood and steel that tell a story of craftsmanship that runs through many generations. If you're particularly lucky you might even be able to watch the master working on the felt of a hat in order to give it the right shine, ironing the brim to give the right shape, or trimming it with a brush for display. If you won't decide to buy anything despite the exhilarating atmosphere, you can catch up on that later. Tailored products can also be delivered all over the world after a consultation and head measurement.

The Publican
Three reasons why guests queue up for one of the sought-for seats: the extraordinarily long beer menu with an interesting selection of American, German and Belgian breweries. Number two: the sausages and oysters are extraordinarily tasty. And third: the Public offers the arguably best brunch in Chicago. The home-made ricotta or the excellent prosciutto are already worth a visit. The program suits the interior which almost seems monumental with its extra-long tables where all the fans are seated. The place is lighted by dozens of train station lamps that hover over the scenery like little white planets. And the menu suits the interior. Straightforward with many classics, from oysters, fish and shrimps to meat in all kind of forms including ham and specialities like pigling, wagyu beef and steak.

Modern Home Tours
Let's be honest: a luxurious mansion in Chicago including the brightly lit living room, ambitiously hidden behind a curtain - it has a ring to it. And you want to see more: what do these people sit on while watching TV? How have they painted their walls and which sculptures and art works have they put into their houses? These questions must also have occupied Matt Swinney and James Leasure - so they founded Modern Home Tours to find answers. Matt and James love everything contemporary in all forms imaginable - modern design, modern architecture, modern living. That's also their approach when selecting houses for their tour: new ways of building and materials, new methods to address the common challenges of daily domestic life. It's also important to them that the visited properties are inhabited by locals and built by local architectures. With their Modern Home Tour the two travel through the whole of North America.
