City Winery, Chicago

(3.8/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
Once a refrigerated food distribution warehouse, City Winery Chicago has transformed a 1911 building into a haven for those who are passionate about wine, music and culinary arts.

Built with re-used material, such as the original wood beams, masonry and brick, this fully functional winery, restaurant and concert venue has become a focal point of West Loop nightlife.

City Winery hosts wine making classes, wine dinners and tastings, intimate music concerts, private events and offers shared plates dining. A patio is open during the summer months.

City Winery Chicago was honored with a 2013 vision award by the Urban Land Institute Chicago, attributed to a unique design and adaptive re-use of the 33,000 square foot, 100-year old building.

City Winery has locations in NYC, Chicago, Napa, Nashville, and Atlanta (coming soon).

  • I loved City Winery! Have been wanting to go for a while. I appreciate getting a wine tasting when I got seated. That's a nice touch. The food and service were all excellent. I love the low-lit romantic atmosphere. Still great for ladies' night or group dates. They have a FREE photo booth in the lobby!! We had a blast taking photos and emailing it. One thing I would like to see are more options of non-California wines on the tap list.
  • They have incredible ambiance. The service is top notch. The concerts are really good. The food is delicious. Fantastic wines. Really great spot for a date, concert, venue, etc. Highly recommend. I saw someone on here say the beer selection is bad. It's a city winery, not a brewery. And yet, the selection isn't that bad. They have only Chicago made beers, just not the same variety as a regular bar.
  • Patrizio is why I liked this place! I have ever been waiting a long while to see him. The drinks are overpriced and the food is not served hot..more tepid. $17 for a hamburger. I am glad however I was there and shared this amazing experience with my mother.
  • I purchased tix for seats 309/310 and paid a premium rate. The table only had two seats so I thought these would be Great seats! And worth the cost. But then the people came and the concert started and I felt like I had a table by the kitchen door. I was bombarded with a flurry of activity over my head constantly, and bumped in my chair nonstop. And that was just behind me. In front of me was a constant parade of people during the whole show. Horrible seats ...definitely not worth what I was charged. and for that reason: "I'm out." No membership for me.
  • Fantastic music venue with food. Doors open at 7 - shows at 8. We had Pork Belly which was excellent and the kale salad and a cheese platter, with a nice glass of red wine. Great staff and a well run place with globally known music acts!
