This is excellent news. We just got word that Soho House Chicago will open in August. Last time we dished on this exclusive, London-based chain we expounded on the coolness of West Loop location. Here are some more details about the property:

There will be a scant 40 guest rooms (told you it was exclusive) on the building's third and fourth floors. The rooms, a press release tell us, will be "comfortable" and "airy," and they'll have rainforest showers and products from Cowshed. Rates start at $160, and bookings will be available this spring.

As for eats? Though guests will be squarely in the middle of restaurant row, they won't have to venture far to grab a bite. There will be restaurants on the ground level, Pizza East and Chicken Shop (you can guess what they serve.) There's also a lounge, Allis Bar, on the first floor. It will sling craft beers, wines, and cocktails, and like the restaurants, it's open to the public (we clarify, you see, because some of this hotel is a private member's club.)

The Cowshed Spa and Salon will also be on the ground level and also open to the public. The spot will offer mani-pedi stations, a men's grooming area, and a blow-dry bar, and—of course—all treatments incorporate those Cowshed products.

The upper levels are where things get a little more for-members-and-guests only. There's a fitness center on the second floor, a 40-seat screening room on the fourth floor, a club floor on the fifth level, and, the icing on top? A glass-enclosed rooftop bar, with an 80-foot swimming pool that overlooks the downtown architecture.

We expect it'll be like Chicago's version of the Standard Downtown LA, but maybe with fewer celebs and more foodies. Stay tuned for updates as they come.
