Check In: Longman & Eagle Inn

Chicago, Illinois
12.03.2010 | by: Meghan

In Chicago’s Logan Square, this neighborhood inn sits on top of one of the city’s coolest, most unpretentiously delicious restaurants, Longman & Eagle, where everything in it was designed and built by the owners with help from their friends/family. The four owners, who are also behind the indie music venue Empty Bottle, opened a bar so they’d have a place to hang out in a neighborhood they love, but the place has far exceeded expectations, recently nabbing a Michelin star for a menu they call “kind of an afterthought.” The much-anticipated inn opens in a week or two. I was there on a photo shoot Monday for a story in CS Interiors, which will delve into the impeccable, clever design of the place. Like the all the local art (including screen-printed wallpaper by a local collective), pendant lights fashioned from lizard lamps, locally designed bedding by Unison, and all the glorious woodwork by owner Robert McAdams’s woodworking company, Mode Carpentry. Once the six rooms are ready, reservations won’t last long. It’s one of the only lodging options in Chicago that manages to capture the creative spirit of this city: hardworking and a little masculine, edgy but still down-to-earth, and fiercely local, local, local.
