Pendry Chicago - Luxury Hotel In An Art Deco Champagne Bottle-Shaped TowerPendry  

Carbide & Carbon Building is Chicago's 37-story, 503 feet (153 meters) tall landmark building. It was built in 1929 on the famous Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

Designed by the Burnham Brothers, the tower's iconic art deco-styling has made it an inseparable part of the city's skyline.

According to an urban myth of the era, the Burnham Brothers designed the building to resemble a dark green champagne bottle topped by a gold foil. Since 2007, the illuminated spire's introduction has made the story entirely believable.

Art Deco is short for Arts Décoratifs in French. The popular styling of the 1920s and 1930s era is built upon exceptional craftsmanship and rich materials.
