Palmer House Starbucks

This unique Starbucks is located in the lower level of the historic Palmer House Hilton which is designated as a Chicago landmark. Restored chandeliers, sconces and artwork recycled from the hotel's recent renovation fill the cafe with old world charm. Technical challenges included bringing adequate power supply, reconfiguring HVAC ductwork in tight spaces and preserving undamaged historic marble and travertine finishes. The success of this project hinged on coordination between multiple parties including Ryba's Fudge Shops (Owner), Thor Equities (Landlord), the City of Chicago Landmarks Commission and Starbucks Coffee Company - ensuring that all project requirements were met.
