    Came here to work with a coworker on a Tuesday morning. The noise level is significantly louder than “moderate”. If you have any client calls or calls in general, I would not recommend working from this location.

    A bit crowded before 10am due to the breakfast/outgoing hotel crowd, but then calms down a bit. Chill atmosphere. Main laptop seating at a community table, with the exception of a few bar seats that face the wall. Also couch seating available. Mix of people working, chatting, and eating.

    From the designers of the Chicago Athletic Club, this coffee shop / bar / hotel lobby is thick with dark wood, curvy couches, dim lighting, and a electric organ. Not so good for daylight window seekers, but perfect for those looking for a dark and stylish corner of trendy Chicago to get stuff done. This place also serves hotel guests, so some folks are socializing, but it’s plenty welcoming to laptop sitters. Not a lot of traditional small table / desk seating: group tables or couches are the game here.

    Plenty of seating at 11:45 AM on Tuesday, reliable internet at 7mb/sec down, 7mb/sec up with 3ms latency. Social login could be avoided by providing email address.
