The James Chicago Hotel is full of life. From the second we entered the sleek revolving doors of the hotel, we were emerged into a modern oasis nuzzled in the center of Chicago. The hotel is stylish, full of light and in an ideal location. With so much as turning the corner from The James, we arrived at the connected restaurant and bar, JIMMY. The JIMMY features divine signature cocktails, delicious food and great company. When we passed through the beaded entrance of the JIMMY and were emerged in the speak-easy space. It had a 70's look with a friendly atmosphere. The James Chicago and JIMMY are two of the most chic hospitality spots Chicago has to offer.
