The second Freehand outpost (the first is in Miami), brings a hybrid hotel-hostel to Chicago. The rooms are small but highly designed, with textiles and bunk beds in the hostel rooms. There's also a coffee shop, Cafe Integral, which gets all its coffee from Nicaragua, and the Broken Shaker, a cocktail bar that serves a mix of classics from the Miami bar and brand new drinks.

This has become my new #1 place to recommend anyone who is coming to visit Chicago. Just spending a few hours there, it feels like its own neighborhood within River North. the hotel/hostel offers many different options from the coffee shop to the amazing cocktail bar that holds regular events like Wine & Vinyl. An event where you bring the music and they'll have the wine...can't beat that. 

The staff loves this place and is proud to be a part of it. They will bend over backwards to help in anyway and give you the best recommendations for the area. Whether you're looking for a place to stay or just for a drink...this is a must in the city.
