Blending Work and Play in a Fun and Relaxed Setting
At the heart of Virgin Hotels Chicago is the 569 m2 Commons Club on the first floor, a dynamic gathering place that integrates the Commons Bar, the Shag Room, the Funny Library, and the Kitchen. Guests can use the library as a temporary office, meet in the lounge areas, and enjoy a meal from the open kitchen. The continuous space blurs the lines between work and play, defying the single-use concept of space that is the norm in more traditional hotels. There is an interesting variety of seating options and custom drapery systems allow for changing spatial configurations and sightlines. The Commons Club is open and transparent during the day and closes into a more intimate experience as dusk approaches.
