Gold Coast Shops
48 East Oak Street Chicago, IL 60611
The windy city just got gooped: From October 25 to January 5, we’re back in town for a repeat performance (our first goop MRKT holiday pop-up landed in Chicago in 2015). This time around, Sasha Adler, of the eponymous Chicago design firm, transformed nearly 3,000 square feet on Oak Street into goop’s chic, light-filled home for the holidays—thoughtfully including a handsome, well-stocked wet bar for store events. Adler’s knack for incorporating vintage elements and local uniquities into cozy, minimalist worlds is the DNA of the goop MRKT experience: over here, blush cookware and a festive cake stand, plus the cookbooks that demand them. Over there, cashmere everything (the stay-warm/look-great brands we love most are all here, from Stella McCartney and cult-fave No.6 to G. Label and pieces from the goop x Sperry collab). And the growing crowd around the round wooden table in the middle of the store? They’re testing products from the goop Beauty line. Starting in November, goop MRKT will also serve as Chicago’s IRL experience of the annual goop gift guides—expect a personality-based curation of inspired, disappointment-defying, opposite-of-boring gifts for every type on your list.

RH Chicago, The Gallery at the Three Arts Club
1300 N. Dearborn St., Gold Coast
It's no secret that we're RH fans at goop HQ, but RH Chicago is really its own self-contained wonderland—you'll find a top-notch lunch spot, where you can choose to eat in the Grand Courtyard (a light-filled, extremely comfortable space that really lives up to its name), plus a more casual café with espresso and fresh-baked treats, and a glamorous wine vault and tasting room. Of course, there's also the stunning 70,000-square-foot display of RH furniture, which is art in itself. The best part: The gorgeous courtyard is shielded from the elements with a lofty glass and steel roof, which means you can revel in it even in the dead of winter—an experience that really can't be overstated.
15 E. Oak St., Gold Coast
Going to Barneys in Chicago is kind of a spiritual experience. To start, the buyers at this branch are incredible at finding pieces that you often won’t find anywhere else. A huge plus, because Chicago tends to be more conservative, is that you can actually find runway pieces, as they tend to disappear lightning fast in New York or Los Angeles.
