Barneys New York, finally opened its new Chicago location in the Gold Coast neighborhood.

Complete with 6 sprawling floors of clothing, shoes, jewelry, a lounge, a green rooftop deck, and even a full restaurant. The space is a true work of art. The store was adequately stocked with the normal tourists and quite a few fellow Chicagoans, who were under dressed and over accessorized for the near 60 degree weather.

The Men’s section is masterfully stocked full of all the designer brands you have come to expect from Barneys. RRL, Public School, Rogan, Rag & Bone, A.P.C., Opening Ceremony, and the list goes on.

With quality clothing, a helpful and knowledgeable staff, and the new amenities, this store has set the bar very high for new luxury retail locations.
