Conrad Chicago’s 21st-floor rooftop is home to Noyane, a contemporary Japanese restaurant that features a stylish aesthetic from modern Japanese design. Anchored by a large central bar and a sculptural fire fixture at the northeast corner, the Puccini Group designed the space to draw attention to awe-inspiring views of Michigan Avenue and across Chicago. A bar-height fire pit table and various seating options offer a tailored, state-of-the-art environment for guests looking to dine or enjoy a cocktail high above the Magnificent Mile.
When conceptualizing the space for Baptiste & Bottle, a contemporary twist on the American tavern, Puccini Group was influenced by Chicago’s former “Whiskey Row” and its masculine tones and textures. This contemporary dining venue, dark wood, aged metals, and bourbon and whiskey-inspired hues were selected. Custom millwork pieces showcase the restaurant’s extensive liquor collection. Seating around the periphery of the restaurant provides patrons with unmatched views of the city, with the bar perfectly positioned against the wall. The restaurant’s artwork includes a large, embossed panel featuring an abstract collage of whiskey ingredients and stills, the apparatus that supports a whiskey or bourbon barrel, as well as a series of seven illustrations detailing the whiskey making process.
Il Tavolino is inspired by an authentic Italian café and caters to more casual dining as an intimate street-side destination. Drawing on the Italian heritage of the River North neighborhood, once known as “Little Sicily,” a blend of modern and rustic design was brought to life through the selection of its materials: wire brushed wood, black and white tiling, and a chalkboard mural displaying menu options.
The concept for each of Conrad Chicago’s three restaurants is the brainchild of famed chef and restaurateur, Richard Sandoval. All three culinary venues display a level of sophistication that aligns with the modern design of the hotel while maintaining their own individual character and identity.
