1000M Library Lounge
28 June 2018
Chicago has always been a literary city. With canonized authors like Ernest Hemingway, Nelson Algren, Richard Wright, Saul Bellow, Ben Hecht, Carl Sandberg, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sandra Cisneros and Aleksandar Hemon, it’s easy to understand what makes Chicago and its authors so important. As cultural connoisseurs and book lovers, we at 1000M value the contributions these great authors and more have provided to the City of Big Shoulders. That’s why the Library Lounge, part of the 40,000 square feet of amenities at 1000M, is near and dear to our hearts.
Step off the elevator at Level 11 and you’ll be greeted by the world-class full-service concierge, which allows you to book private spa treatments, Sun Deck cabanas and more. Grab a coffee and a newspaper before deciding which space to explore, whether it’s the Fitness Center, Beauty Bar, Spa, Gardens, Sun Deck and Pool, Conservatory, or Theater. But if you’re seeking the kind of tranquility that can only be achieved by curling up with a good book, then the Level 11 Library Lounge is where you’ll want to spend your time.
The Library Lounge is equipped with a centrally located 2-sided fireplace that divides the room. Take your pick of various sofa and armchair seating areas or settle in near the bookcases and the expansive windows that capture 1000M’s “forever views”. From the Level 11 Terrace, you can survey the natural beauty of Grant Park and Lake Michigan while you read. The whole Lounge has been superbly curated by Kara Mann while the generous selection of books will represent the literature of Chicago, guaranteeing you cannot make a bad choice. The chilly winters may not be for everyone, but the coziness of watching the rain or snow outside the full-length windows, sitting by a fire and getting lost in a great novel is beyond enticing.
