SHAY, located in the heart of Chicago’s River North neighborhood, is the premier event venue. An upscale lounge with a modern, sleek, chic design and an inviting atmosphere. The concept was inspired by the luxury and transitory vibe of popular hotel bars and lounges. The ethereally-inspired interior utilizes many elements of the Earth with layered and lacy finishes to give SHAY a feminine feel. Classic geometries play on the use of light and the warm interior palette refine the space in a transitional way.
