The Bar Method opens in the Gold Coast later this month.
Following closely on the heels of Lincoln Park’s recently opened Dailey Method is a new outpost of another barre-based studio, The Bar Method. Set to open January 26 in the Gold Coast, this is the gym’s fifth studio in town—fitting since The Bar Method is celebrating its five-year anniversary in Chicago this year.
So what is all the hype about? The newly-popular exercise technique is a combination of dance conditioning, physical therapy techniques, interval training, and long, lean muscle sculpting. And while the method is getting major buzz nationwide, The Bar Method’s latest opening will make Chicago its largest franchise. The Gold Coast studio aligns with the neighborhood’s overall vibe, promising to be an upscale urban oasis with a spa-like atmosphere. Visit the Lakeview, Wicker Park, The Loop, and Highland Park locations until the opening later this month.
Bar Method Chicago co-owners Lis Settimi and Catherine James aver that the studio’s exercises don’t just change your body, but also your mind. To help your New Year’s resolutions and celebrate its five-year anniversary, The Bar Method is running an exclusively priced five-week unlimited class special for new guests or guests who haven't been to a class since 2011 ($100, through February 10).
