We stayed at the Acme Hotel and our room looked over this weird globe on the roof of Bloomie’s and we just had to check it out - an my what a piece of artwork that is! The store is great too with free coffee samples and friendly staff. Construction outside but warm and friendly once inside - worth a visit!

Though the restoration is well done, I've always found it a bit odd to buy kitchen, towels, bedding under what is a perfect acoustic dome where Sir Georg Solti conducted the astounding Grammy-winning recordings of the Chicago Symphony.

I was most impressed by the customer service I received at the Bloomingale's Medinah Home Store. Sales associate took their time with you and did not rush. (That was great, though could be unfortunate if there were lots of shoppers, and not enough associates, although when I was there in October 2017, that wasn't an issue.) The tabletop section had a wide variety of luxury brands: Juliska, Franz Porcelain, Baccarat, Christofle, Lalique, Villeroy and Boch, Rosenthal, Bernaurdaud, Michael Aram, and Nambé. The lower level had a nice selection of small kitchen appliances and various tools of the trade - plus when I was there Nespresso representatives were there, so free coffee!

Length of Visit: Less than an hour if just browsing; obviously several hours if you are doing serious shopping or setting up your registry

Bathrooms: Handicap accessible; 2nd Floor for sure

Elevators and Escaltors

Nice, clean store

The Bloomindale's store now occupies what was once the Medinah Shriner Temple, one of the coolest structures in downtown Chicago. It looks like something out of Aladdin, with distinctive Middle Eastern designs. Great windows and domed roof. Store staff are used to visitors entering just to gawk at the building. They even have a brochure outlining the history of the unique building; just ask one of the staff for a copy.

The building itself is really the highlight. Such a beautiful historic building. Totally worth a stop. There's also free wifi at the store.
