Taking its inspiration from Villa Nellcôte, the notorious Côte d’Azur mansion where the Rolling Stones dined and partied with a rotating cast of 1970s bohemians, socialites, style icons and creative rabble-rousers during the recording of “Exile on Main Street,” Nellcôte is a stunningly elegant playground for anyone looking to indulge their deviant streak.Located in Chicago’s Randolph Street Corridor, this high-energy nightspot takes your breath away with its opulence: Art Nouveau wrought-iron gates, a white Italian marble grand staircase, Parisian herringbone wood floors, crystal chandeliers, Gran Dossier Tolix bar chairs in Hermes orange. But what’s most striking is its utter lack of pretense: Decadent but infinitely approachable, Nellcôte marks a defiant return to classic luxury—but without the velvet rope exclusivity.Nellcôte specializes in kitchen-crafted cocktails and European-inspired small plates made with Midwestern ingredients, including pizzas and pastas that showcase house-milled Midwestern wheat. Prices are affordable, the dishes shareable, and—just like the Stones’ unforgettable summer in the South of France—everyone is welcome to contribute to the grit and glamour of the new cultural zeitgeist.
