Boutique by day, event and gallery space by night, Ad Hoc offers a selection of hand-picked clothing, home goods, and accessories, as well as a gallery and event space for local artists.

Our Story

 

Ad Hoc is home to a carefully selected collection of women’s and men’s clothing, handmade jewelry pieces, and a blend of retro and contemporary home goods.

We believe style shouldn't be dictated by fleeting trends.  You won't find overpriced, too trendy items that you only get to wear once before it is over done, or just plain done.  Style is individual and purposeful and Ad Hoc is about purposeful shopping. Instead of a tedious shopping experience-  you are invited to take a seat on the couch, play a great record, and take your time browsing through the collection.

Ad Hoc is also committed to collaborating with local artists’ and the community by displaying a revolving array of work from many talented artists, and offering event space with a refurbished, made-by hand ambience complete with retro-modern furniture and fixtures and a full-kitchen. 

Whether you want to add to your closet, pick out a gift, browse the work of local artists or put together an event, Ad Hoc has one purpose in mind, your purpose.

Style & Quality

Each item in the shop- from basic tee to ornate jewelry- has been hand selected by the owner with the designers.  Whether handmade locally or produced on a large scale, we take pride in the quality and style of each piece available.  Our style statement is a unique urban blend items that lends to ones individuality without falling prey to over-done fleeting trends.  

 

Events

We have been working since day one to be more than just a shop.  Loving our great city and all the makers, creators, and designers, we have been working to create an intimate gallery space to showcase the awesome arts community in Chicago.  Our gallery space is ever evolving and has hosted a variety of events from Art shows to DIY classes.  For more info on the space or events check our facebook page or email chicagoadhoc@gmail.com

 


 

“Racks of affordable ($50 or less), trendy clothing and accessories fill this West Town shop;... Shoppers can score pieces from popular budget-friendly brands—Sanctuary, Level 99 Jeans, Chrlder—as well as smaller, American-made labels like Mono B, Line and Dot, and Timing. Local designer Caroline Borucki’s hand-sewn pieces using vintage fabric are particularly eye-catching. Heil only stocks a few sizes of each piece, so grab them while they’re hot. Handmade jewelry, books, candles and accessories are also for sale.
