Bar & café opens at Merchandise Mart

24-Jun-17 – Merchandise Mart has a new bar and café. Marshall’s Landing, named for Marshall Field, founder of the department store, is located on the second floor, accessed from the new “grand stair” leading from the building’s main lobby.

J.C. Anderson, Inc. The 12,000-square-foot space includes a walnut and brass bar with 118 overhead light fixtures, a 50-foot-long tilted glass mirror surrounded by brass, leather and velvet banquet seating along the north side (left), and a private dining facility.

“The vision was years in the making,” said Anthony Douglas, project executive for J.C. Anderson, Inc., the Illinois firm that constructed the space, “and we’re proud to have been selected to execute a finished product which not only reflects the history of the building and Chicago, but also showcases a welcoming atmosphere of rich woods and brass.”

The space was designed by Valerio Dewalt Train Associates of Chicago and A+I of New York. Operated by DMK Restaurants, Marshall’s Landing will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Today
Fosco Lucarelli, Italian architect and educator based in Paris and Douglas A. Garofalo Fellow from UIC School of Architecture, discusses Dysfunctional Plans, a theoretical inquiry based on seven design exercises made in collaboration with a group of Lucarelli’s students. More an experiment than a manifesto, this talk and accompanying exhibition at UIC questions whether architecture might be a discipline autonomous enough to create its own narrative, content, function, purpose, and imagination – and therefore, meaning – stemming solely from its bare form. 6:00 p.m., Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, Madlener House, 4 West Burton Place. Map. More info.

Saturday
The Iraqi Mutual Aid Society returns for its sixth annual Middle Eastern Poetry Festival. Enjoy the rich tradition of multilingual poems in Arabic and other languages from the Middle East by refugees and immigrants from the cradle of civilization. English translations will be provided. Cosponsored with the Iraqi Mutual Aid Society. A reception follows the program. 2:00 p.m., Poetry Foundation, 61 West Superior Street. Free admission. Map. More info.

Saturday
Canadian composer Sarah Davachi returns to Chicago and presents new work for reed organ, violin, viola da gamba and electronics. Based upon variously displaced melodic movements that were originally developed through a series of improvisations for pipe organ, this piece attempts to balance instances of consonance and dissonance, both in frequency content and physical gesture between its three players. 8:00 p.m., Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, Madlener House, 4 West Burton Place. Map. More info.
