Upstairs at The Gwen

Located on the fifth floor of The Gwen Hotel, Upstairs at The Gwen has design flourishes reminiscent of the Art Deco age, while retaining a modern sensibility that offers a bit of respite from the chaotic bustle of nearby Rush Street locales. It’s just a short elevator ride up to this new Chicago rooftop. Here’s a brief guide to what you might find when you stop by for a drink or for a more elaborate dining experience.

What if I told you it was possible to have perfectly prepared blueberry pancakes, creatively prepared chilaquiles and much more while taking in stellar views of Millennium Park and beyond? And oh yes: there’s downtempo soul music carefully curated as well. It’s all possible and it happens every Sunday from 10am-3pm at Cindy’s on the 13th floor of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel in the Loop.
