This large, beautiful riverside tavern and grille in the heart of Chicago’s Loop is ideal for leisure visitors, travel and meeting professionals alike. Kitty-corner from Union Station and The Willis Tower, this urban oasis is centrally located among Chicago’s hottest attractions. The open-air bar that sits along the Chicago River is a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail in warmer months, and is a truly unique addition to Chicago’s Loop.

South Branch is closed to the public on the weekends, making it ideal for large-scale, private events. Envision lavish outdoor parties in the warm summer sun or holiday parties where the sprawling views of snow falling on the Chicago River accentuate the occasion. Big enough to host the largest affairs, but versatile enough to accommodate many smaller gatherings at once, South Branch can handle groups from 10-200 during the week, and 100-350 on weekends for private events. Be sure to impress your group by having this sought after venue in your portfolio.
