The University Club of Chicago is a private city club residing in a gorgeous 13 floor gothic skyscraper located at the corner of Monroe and Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago. Phil recorded this episode onsite with its general manager, John Spidalette, head chef and restaurant manager, Mark Baker, and chief engineer, Marty Keane, to discuss the opening of $13.5 million expansion on the 7th and 8th floor. This is a unique development as it involves combining two buildings, dealing with landmark building issues, and raising funds to deliver a beautiful new restaurant (The Parliament), private dining space, two outdoor spaces including a balcony overlooking Millennium Park, and a more casual sports bar area called The Living Room. The project includes design and architecture by Antunovich Associates, general construction services rendered by Bulley and Andrews, and owners representative JLL. We release this episode just one day before its formal opening to membership. In full disclosure, Phil is a longtime member of the University Club, involved in club governance, and this is his home away from home.
