Nathan Michael


We connected with photographer and social media strategist Nathan Michael, and asked him to show us around his home city of Chicago. He said yes, grabbed a Wythe, and took to the streets to document his favorite spots in the area. Take a peek below to read about his trip.:


1. Low Res Studio

Brooklyn Bicycle Co. Wythe

Low Res Studio is an event space and agency that fosters Chicago creatives. Not a bad place for a photo op, this studio has its finger on the pulse of what's happening currently in Chicago and around the country.


2. The Allis

The Allis is an elegant restaurant and bar in the public area of Soho House (an exclusive member's only club). From brunch to late night Negronis, they have it all.


 3. Urban Belly

Nathan's favorites at this Thai restaurant: Lemongrass Chicken and the Pad Thai.

4. Lake Shore DriveBrooklyn Bicycle Co. Wythe

During the warmer months in Chicago, locals can be seen strolling and running this lakeside trail, sunbathing, picnicking, and taking in the views. 


5. Antique TacoAntique Taco Chicago

Nathan's picks: the Crispy Fish Tacos or the Pork Carnitas (and maybe a Horchata Milkshake too!).
