Rooftop restaurant/bar captures Wicker Park energy, draws both guests and locals with views of Chicago skyline
Owners of Hyatt Place Chicago/Wicker Park wanted to set it apart from nearby select service hotels by establishing it as a community asset.
Kennedy Rooftop, named after Chicago’s Kennedy Expressway, not only offers some of the best views in Wicker Park, but it also creates a vibrant gathering place. Positioned next to the sky lobby, the seventh-floor restaurant/bar invites community members to engage with friends and connect with their neighborhood from a different perspective, while encouraging guests to interact with Wicker Park locals.
Sheedy/DeLaRosa Interiors served as our interior design partner on this project.
- Seventh-floor glass wall slices through the building’s square-shaped footprint to orient views toward downtown Chicago
- Circular sculpture called the “Interchange” is visible beyond the host desk and creates an anchor point on the west end of the terrace
- Designers drew inspiration from the neighborhood’s urban context and the Chicago flag
