Fashion Plates: What To Wear To The Bedford

the bedford opens in chicago what to wear to the bedford
Let's travel back in time to days gone by when folks stashed their cash in big, soaring vaults with spinning dials and magic keys. Imagine gentlemen opening doors for women donning back-seamed stockings and pretty pincurls. Maybe you can even make out an old Chrysler's brassy horn from the street. Take that glorious, retro ambiance, install a kitchen, some posh interior details, and throw in a full bar manned by some of Chicago's finest bartenders, and you've got The Bedford. Brought to you by Salita Development, this new night-spot boasts upscale Midwestern fare, hand-crafted cocktails, and locally sourced beer and wine, plus a swanky lounge adorned with safety deposit boxes that once contained Chicago's fattest fortunes. Don't be intimidated: We've whipped up an elegant ensemble that's sure to hold up this bank in style. The Bedford, 1612 West Division Street (at the Division Blue Line Stop); 773-235-8800.
