Located in the Fulton Market neighborhood, this 30,000 square foot space is dispersed between two levels. The smaller ground floor at 3,000 square feet, is tribute to a speakeasy and is completely different than the rest of the restaurant. Designed as a vintage style Laundromat, complete with a wall of colorful washing machine fronts, materials often seen in these spaces, such as classic wood paneling, pastel vinyl tile, colorful plastics and metal detailing were used.

The larger upper floor of the building takes cues from 1930s Chicago jazz and the glam fashion of that era. Tailored, menswear inspired plaids, tweeds and leather detailing are used throughout. Heavy use of brass accents are a nod to jazz instruments, as well as a vintage, polished aesthetic.
