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.
