Recently opened in the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, Madison Hall is not your typical hotel gift shop. Space519 owners Lance Lawson and Jim Wetzel designed the shop to capture the feel of a 1930s newsstand. But, this is no simple cart on the side of the street; it is a full-blown store separated into men’s and women’s sections. On the side geared toward women, gifts and fresh flowers are on display. The men’s side has its own barber chair. Stop into Madison Hall to find unique gifts that no one would guess were purchased in a hotel.
