Publishing House Bed & Breakfast

Our new neighbors are hosting strangers and we're O.K. with it. The Publishing House is in the heart of the West Loop and the hosts, Shawn and Kimberly, are living up to the neighborhood's standard when it comes to tasteful vintage design and repurposed historic architecture. Nika and I had a chance to staycation over 4th of July weekend and explore most of the 18,000 square-foot property. The best part was being the first guests to enjoy the media room, where the four of us (six if you include their two pugs) watched Gone in 60 Seconds over a bottle of wine and pizza. Look out for news about the Press Room - a wine bar on the lower level opening soon.
