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'm a big fan of the original in NYC. I've been the Chicago one multiple times to dine and for charity events. I love the space - very cool atmosphere. A great place to take out of town guests. A lot ...  more »
  • Went there to see the band The Church on July 3. The place is great to see a show and the staff was friendly and knew their wines.  more »
  • This is a great place to take a break and enjoy a glass of wine. Get a counter stool if possible versus a table to really enjoy the parade on the sidewalk and water way. The wines are very good albeit...  more »

  • Was there for the Christopher Cross show and some supper. Our waiter Vinny was great! He was kind, personable and enjoys what he does. The food looked and tasted great. Nice atmosphere and the facility was clean. We were from out of town, but it was easy to get there and parking was plentiful. We will be back for another show, hopefully soon.
  • Super five stars for which you consume and the atmosphere! It was like as if all of the other pork chops I have ever in my life weren't really pork chops , and that here, I was trying it for the first time. It just melted in my mouth. That's just an idea of what you can expect from the food here. If you have have the opportunity to try the chef's creations, consider part of your life complete! The Three Amigos red blend will blow you away, just like the food, and others in their wine selection. Also, not only is this a heavenly selection for food (the menu changes bi-annually for variety and freshness of what's in season), but this is an entertainment venue as well! Yes, check out their calander for musical acts and enjoy your dining with a live performance (they have some pretty impressive artists that come through here)!
  • City Winery is the best date spot in Chicago. They have a great atmosphere and quality music on a nightly basis. I highly recommend!!!
  • Great vibe here. Food is hit or miss for me. I have had amazing things and had more not so amazing things. The entertainment is usually really good if you see someone you like. I saw griffin house and he rocked it!
  • Great place for large groups or an nice date night. Families would be welcome here too. It's a good music venue but I've been here for just dinners and I like that they have a courtyard when the weather is nice. The food was good and the service was friendly. The West Loop has a ton of options for going out but this has always been a good choice, especially if you have a larger group and want something nice yet feels casual!

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
