WEST LOOP — The Wing will officially open its first Chicago location on April 11.
The woman-focused social club that started in New York will open its 8,500-square-foot coworking space at 811 W. Fulton Market St. It will feature conference rooms, phone booths, a restaurant, a mother’s room, showers and more. An art gallery will feature a rotating exhibition of art from female-identifying artists.
The Wing’s Chicago cafe will feature baked goods, beer, wine and products from local farms. Dishes will include nods to Chicago’s neighborhoods, according to a Wing news release.
The organization also partnered with Women and Children First, a beloved Andersonville book shop, to create a woman-focused lending library with more than 2,000 publications at the coworking space.
The location will give women a space to work while also providing them with networking opportunities and events. On Saturday, Valerie Jarrett, former advisor to President Obama, will be interviewed about her life and her new book in the space. There will also be panel discussions and workshops on things like salary negotiations to benefit members.
Membership is $185 per month for the Chicago location or $250 per month for access to all locations, including spots on the East and West coasts.
Hours are 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
