Le Thrift at The Drake Hotel

Le Thrift Consignment Boutique is excited to showcase our designer pieces at the Drake HotelIt's truly an honor to have a window display in the Chicago landmark within the Magnificent Mile and all its glamorous luxury.

The Magnificent Mile (or Mag Mile as the locals often call it) is world famous for premier shopping, dining and entertainment. The Drake Hotel is located at 140 East Walton St. where the Magnificent Mile begins and has been a mainstay for over 80 years. 

The Drake has over 500 rooms, most with lakefront views, a six-room Presidential Suite, several restaurants, two large ballrooms and the "Palm Court" private lobby. The hotel also includes its own boutiques including a Chanel store.

Since opening on New Year's Eve 1920, the Drake was the place to see and be seen for many of Chicago's high-society. Royalty and heads-of-state often stay at The Drake while visiting Chicago. The Drake has accommodated Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip and Princess Diana of England, King Hussein of Jordan, Nehru of India and Winston Churchill and Presidents Herbert Hoover, Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. 

Many celebrities enjoyed The Drake's white glove service including Charles Lindbergh, Walt Disney and Elizabeth Taylor. The likes of Bing Crosby, George Gershwin, Walt Disney, and Charles Lindbergh were known to enjoy Herbie Kay in The Gold Coast Room. Newlyweds Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio would carve their iconic initials into the Cape Cod Room bar’s world famous wooden counter.(1)
