Considering that its last renovation took place in 1984, the Adolphus Hotel was long in need of a redo. Thanks to the newly-revamped City Hall Bistro, the hotel now has a brand new, somewhat laid-back dining destination.
For the revamp, it was a complete focus on “out with the old, in with the new.” Everything that wasn’t nailed down, was removed. And everything that was nailed, glued, or cemented down, was chipped, stripped, and cleaned down to a fresh, clean slate. In its place, City Hall Bistro boasts a clean, mid-century modern style with plenty of classic influence.
White subway tile lines the walls and pillars, while caramels and rustic mustard-hued leather lend balance to the restaurant’s furniture. Tables paired with French café chairs and plush booths offer plenty of seating, while reflective brass accents sprinkled throughout the space add a touch of old-school charm. The dining room is adjacent to City Hall Bistro’s open kitchen, giving diners a direct view of the hustle and bustle as their dishes are prepared.
