Public Chicago
Luxury for everyone. That was the mantra of hotel guru Ian Schrager when opening the first of his Public Hotels in Chicago. And he kept his word: the venerable 1926 building was upgraded through a careful facelift. Airy and timeless are the signature qualities of the puristic design. Dazzling white, vintage chandeliers, antique as well as new mirrors and an old train station clock above the reception that runs backwards are the features of the lobby which is named the living room. Elegant white also brings comfort into the rooms, supplemented by Thonet chairs, ironic black and white photos of cows with hats and marble walls in the bathroom. One institution remained: the Pump Room, former hot spot frequented by Marilyn Monroe or Humphrey Bogart. Jean-Georges Vongerichten was invited to create the menus: shrimp toast with lemon aioli or crisp Viennese schnitzel. Delicious treats by super head chef - just as we know them from him. Double rooms from 140 euros.

Naval Museum
They are quite nice to look at, the smart uniforms of the US Navy. Depending on situation and rank the officers and soldiers march in service, full or dinner dress over the vessel. At the Great Lakes Naval Museum in Chicago you might not see them live in action, maybe individuals, but Navy fans will learn everything about the US Navy and their history.   The museum in the Northern party of the city is not big, yet, it is an official department of the Navy museum in Washington DC. In this way curations and new collections depend on what sponsors and patrons will donate. With this money the experts interpret the past of the largest naval unit in the world. Special emphasis is put on the only training camp of the Navy at this very space. In order to bond with the up-and-coming they will explain how to turn civilians into seamen. Furthermore the museum offers courses for children, for example on the history of fingerprints. Of course kids will also be able to put their own thumbs on ink and paper.

Alinea
The rooms of this temple of creativity are dipped in a mystic half-dark, elegant dark wooden tables are the stage for a 24-course menu full of surprises. Mastermind Grant Achatz expends all efforts so as to carry gusto to a pleasurable extreme. More than half of the dishes is served on newly invented service elements. That is swinging spits, stands or plate landscapes designed by artists Martin Kastner specially for Alinea. Antenna, anti-plate or 2D-3D is what he calls his designs. The presentation of the dishes is therefore quite unusual: you will suck tapioca pearls out of glass cylinders, hibiscus and crème fraîche or a piece of bacon is hanging on a wire just like a trapeze artist. The dishes are ingenious creations that have already become classics, for example the pheasant in tempura dough with apple and shallot, skewered on an oak breach with smouldering leaves that smell of forest and barbecue.

Robin Richman
Robin Richman and her eponymous store are firmly established in Chicago's fashion scene. Her story began in 1997 with a line of hand-knitted jumpers and the opening of her store in order to display them. Summer was coming and Robing realised that the demand for knitwear during the warm months is rather weak. Therefore she needed to expand her range of goods. She contacted friends such as fashion icon Marc Le Bihan and the girls from the label Antipast and from then on also sold designs by other designers. In contrast to other boutiques Robin Richman does not want to chase fast moving trends but represent a selection of continuous styles. Her shoes, dresses, jewellery and accessories are offbeat and sometimes eccentric, they testify to a great extent of imagination and sometimes have a bit of patina. Today Richman sells fashion by more than 70 brands in her store - unfortunately that doesn't leave much time for her own knitwear line.
