Bronzeville Winery offers a well curated wine list and perfectly executed local menu fueled by in house vertical gardens and summertime Chicago community urban grow operations. This black owned woman owned space acts as an important incubator for young and eager minority hospitality hopefuls looking to dedicate their career to the world of food and beverage. With dedication to service top of mind, Bronzeville Winery celebrates the honorable traditions of taking care of the community through the craft of food and beverage.

The menu is a take on Modern American cuisine shaped by the amalgamation of cultures that make Chicago one of the most exciting cities in the world.

Bronzeville Winery is a celebration of Bronzeville, a storied history refined by modern revitalization that has put the neighborhood in the spotlight. The team developing Bronzeville Winery is led by

Eric Williams, the founder and owner of The Silver Room, an independent retail and community art space in Chicago and Cecilia Cuff a leader in the hospitality industry and founder of The Nascent Group.

Over the course of 20 years, the Silver Room has served two prominent Chicago neighborhoods, bridging community, culture, and commerce to support independent artists and generating opportunities for creatives to connect. For Bronzeville Winery, Williams is partnering with global hospitality design trailblazer, Cecilia Cuff of The Nascent Group. The Nascent Group is a hospitality and urban design & entrepreneurial equity incubator founded in Chicago in 2011 and after completing projects all over the globe, this was the perfect homecoming project.

Specializing in creating innovative and inclusive spaces through urban planning, art installation, concept renovation for hotels, restaurants and retail spaces, The Nascent Group advocates for the good of all by designing systems that weigh sustainability, diversity and art alongside revenue, reach, profitability and productivity to establish sustainable communities. This idea of reciprocity through business plays an important role in the operating philosophy of Bronzeville Winery

The team’s goal in the design of Bronzeville Winery is to encourage guests to spend time, to socialize and network in an inviting space that is both comfortable and engaging. The restaurant will act as a cultural incubator highlighting a revolving art collection curated by Cierra Mckissick, a state-of-the-art 360 sound system, live music and DJ residency commissioned by Ron Trent, architectural design by Future Firm, interior design by Norman Teague, lighting by Lucy Slivinski and wall art by Krista Franklin.

Guests of the Winery will enjoy a rotating wine list with selections from around the world highlighting Women, Minority and African American owned labels paired with an ever changing seasonal menu that features comfort foods, reimagined with house grown greens as well as locally grown and produced ingredients. The intention of Bronzeville Winery is to create a menu that is as eloquent, interesting and dynamic as the history that shaped the South side of Chicago.
