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).

  • Recently attended a concert at the City Winery in Chicago. It was my first visit to this venue so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the drink selection, not just wine btw. Th...  read more »
  • Incredible acoustics, great music, small venue so every seat in the house is excellent. Usually order an appetizer and glass of wine to eat/drink during the concert. Not a huge fan of the wine they ma...  read more »
  • Great place to sit and have a decent glass of wine and enjoy the lovely view!!! Snacks are ok, but I would stick to a drink! 
  • Nice Music venue, but not the place for food or good dining experience. Started with house brand Cab & Char to disappointing measures, flat, forced aged and unremarkable. Paired with starters risotto balls and crispy chorizo, that were good, but shrimp slightly salty and risotto needed some. Shared a dinner plate of Fried Monk fish, that was dry and void of flavor. Monk Fish is called poor mans lobster, not a fatty fish, so over cooking is easy, as they did. Service was OK, Waiter had no recommendation, not communicative, never introduce himself, initials LD. Missed side of greek potatoes with dinner, came later cold and undercooked. We had to ask repeatedly to clear our table, and all this was before the performance that was scheduled at 7 pm, but stated @ 8:30pm....... I would return for the music, but will eat before I come.....
  • I love this venue. Saw Kurt Elling at the City Winery Chicago recently. Had a glass of Red Zinfindel while listening to fabulous jazz music.💋
  • Can be a good venue but be aware that although it s a pretty small space, due to design flaws there are really bad seats for sale, as in very poor view of stage, diminished acoustics. Had one of those tonight for Al Di Meola. Good concert but not for us.
  • 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.
  • Spacious would be an understatement, the Randolph City Winery is much more than its name suggests. They have an excellent (and not busy) patio that enjoys the sun for a large part of the day. Inside there's a full bar and from our limited assessment (mushroom flat bread) a capable kitchen to complement the winery itself, which offers 15 wines on tap, of which the sauvignon blanc was quite pleasant.
