The Absolut bus stops

An ordinary walk to the office from the bus stop is suddenly filled with little surprises as commuters walk down State Street in the River North area of downtown Chicago. Bus stops are dressed up to match different flavors of Absolut vodka and really set the stage, transforming your wait for the bus into a huge desire for a cocktail. The Absolut Citron stop has 70s retro-style seats and is loaded down with a lemon tree on top. The Absolut Wild Tea stop is an English tea garden oasis in the midst of the urban jungle with English thronelike chairs and a lush garden overhead.
