Hugging the corner of Goethe and Dearborn streets in Chicago’s mainly residential Gold Coast Historic District, “3 Arts Club Café” is a stunningly beautiful oasis inside an over a century old establishment. Designed by architects Holabird & Roche, the building initially housed the club of women in the “three arts” of drama, music, and painting, while nowadays hosts “Restoration Hardware” (RH), one of the fanciest furniture stores in the USA.

Arranged in separate rooms set up to look like an actual residence, “Restoration Hardware” furniture store is known for displaying elegant furniture and other home-decor pieces in both interior and exterior spaces of about 70,000 square feet spreading in six different floors.

At the “Rooftop Park & Conservatory” located at the top of the gallery, guests can enjoy panoramic views of Old Chicago.

On the first-floor atrium, except for the crown jewel of the building, which is no other than the “3 Arts Club Café,” visitors can find the “3 Arts Club Wine Vault” and the “3 Arts Club Pantry & Barista Bar.”

The “3 Arts Club Café” menu is mainly inspired by Mediterranean and Northern California cuisine. Guests can enjoy delicious meals in the courtyard surrounded by Heritage olive trees and appreciate the elegant restored historic fountain, overlooked by a beautiful chandelier.

Heading to the “3 Arts Club Pantry & Barista Bar,” you can order tea, handcrafted coffee, cold-press juices, as well as beers and sodas, or simply freshly-baked pastries like donuts.

We suggest that you ask for the “3 Arts Club Wine Vault’s” signature drink, however, if you are a wine lover, anything you randomly choose from the curated wine list will help you unwind while gazing at the iridescent gold vaulted ceilings of the room.
