While you are staying at The Commons Hotel we toured yesterday, you can enjoy upscale dining at Beacon Public House restaurant. Situated just off the lobby, Beacon Public House, features regionally-inspired gastropub fare. But we are not here today to discuss the food. Nope...I want to show you the amazing decor and atmosphere inside. Walkway to Beacon Beacon Public House is situated off to one end of the u-shaped hotel on the first floor. The designers did an impeccable job of making an inviting and interesting walk way and waiting area leading to the restaurant. You are greeted first with a beautiful reclaimed wood wall. The reclaimed wood was all locally sourced in the upper mid-west. This transition to the reclaimed wood transports your from the more formal hotel lobby areas, to a more rustic chic dining experience. Just outside the entrance is a large custom banquette. The fabric features names of local streets. The same fabric was used on wing chairs in the hotel lobby.
