The Warwick Allerton Hotel – downtown Chicago 2015

 

While waiting for my doctor the other day,  I made this image of the Warwick Allerton Hotel through the waiting room window.

The flare on the right is a reflection of the lamps in the waiting room. I thought the flare looked cool and it reminded me of the hotel’s glory days.

By all accounts, The Allerton Hotel  was a happening place in Chicago from the twenties on, and apparently the Tip Top Tap was

the coolest lounge around in 40’s & 50’s Chicago.

 

 

“Chicago’s one of the rare places where architecture is more visible.”
