4. Brunch at 3 Arts Club Cafe

  • When: Monday – Saturday 10:00AM-8:00PM, Sunday 11:00AM – 6:00PM.
  • Where: 3 Arts Club Cafe, Atrium at Restoration Hardware; 1300 N. Dearborn St., Chicago, IL 60610.

Why this is fun: You’ve seen one Restoration Hardware, you’ve seen ’em all, right? Not until you’ve caught a glimpse of these six floors of lifestyle aspirations. A visit here feels less like going shopping and more like an afternoon at Soho House: Tote a glass of wine as you step through room after room of Nancy Meyers–worthy furniture. Then recover with a green juice or a bacon club beneath the chandeliers of the 3 Arts Club Café (shopping is so…exhausting), operated by the same folks who run Au Cheval.
