Once a refrigerated food distribution warehouse, City Winery has transformed this 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 small plates dining. A patio is open during the summer months. City Winery Chicago was recently 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.
The cuisine borrows from Mediterranean history, including Italian, French, Spanish and Middle Eastern cultures in small plates meant for sharing and wine pairing
City Winery’s award-winning wine list has more than 400 unique producers from around the world, in addition to the more than 20 in-house produced wines sourced from vineyards in California, Oregon, Washington, Argentina and Chile (and, next year, Riesling from Michigan)
