    Nicaraguan coffee and all-day breakfast (African shakshuka, Cardamom-Farro Porridge) are featured at the in-house restaurant, Café Integral. Just like its predecessor, the Freehand Miami, the Chicago outpost has The Broken Shaker, a celebrated and decidedly eclectic mixology bar.

    This hostel in Reykjavik is well-suited for all types of travelers, as the property boasts both dormitory-style hostel accomodations as well as a chic hotel. The third and fourth floors house the hostel rooms, with modern bed frames (designed to be noise free) and black-out curtains for those midnight sun months.
