Dylan's Candy Bar, the New York-based confectionery, is headed our way. The Chicago Tribune reports that the store—which was founded by Dylan Lauren, daughter of Ralph—will take over a former museum space at 445 North Michigan Avenue.
This will be no small thing: spanning two floors and 13,000 square feet, the gigantic sweet spot will sling candies from around the world and will house a whimsical lollipop tree, along with a a cafe and a bar suited for private parties. It will all happen soon, but not too soon: locals will get their first taste of the store at a pop-up that will take place in November.
