Once this building in the Windy City was known as The Hub and as a theater. Now it is a popular address for foodies and beer lovers.

Yet this is far more than a brewery pub with adjacent restaurant. And that is due to the interior. The concept is oriented towards the industrial foundation.

Raw brick walls and striking steel structures are compelling. The sensible compilation of soft upholstered benches in the style of Chesterfield sofas underline a contemporary comfort.
