The Hamilton Hotel has opened Via Sophia, a southern Italian Osteria and cocktail bar perfect for everything from private dinners to events and parties. 

The restaurant comes as a part of the hotel’s recent multimillion-dollar renovation, designed with a distinct mix of styles in mind throughout the space, from authentic European cutting boards to pieces of modern photography and abstract art pieces, all of which are a part of the restaurant’s custom art collection.  

The space accommodates 96 guests inside, in addition to an outdoor patio with up to 30 additional seats. In addition to the restaurant and bar, the hotel also hosts the Society, an intimate setting with 14 seats. Nestled under dim lighting and an elegant interior, the Society is reminiscent of a parlor space, one that will bring about a more intimate feel than the restaurant and bar. 
 
While Via Sophia is located in a hotel, it aims to reach all people in Washington D.C. From guests of Hamilton to locals looking for a great meal to passersby noticing the restaurant’s separate street access, Via Sophia’s lively energy welcomes all guests. The restaurant’s 880-pound, handmade in Italy Acunto wood-burning oven makes delicious Neapolitan pizza that is sure to be enjoyed amidst Via Sophia’s sophisticated and hospitable atmosphere no matter the day you’ve had. 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Jumpstarting tourism in cities across the country will be more complicated than simply opening doors again – especially in cities with large populations like Chicago. However, working together proves more effective, and in Chicago, more than 250 businesses are banding together to join Choose Chicago’s new initiative, Tourism & Hospitality Forward. It bolsters a safe reopening that encourages tourism as well as meetings and events in
