The Northman Beer & Cider Garden brings the feel of a traditional European beer garden to Chicago’s stunning Riverwalk. Featuring draft beer & cider with local and international options available on 16 taps. Make sure to try The Northman’s own Rose & Pub Ciders, both are offered on draft and perfect for sipping on that lazy hazy Chicago afternoon or evening. Serving over 50 canned and bottled local and global options, offerings include beer, cider, hard seltzer, Kombucha, wine and premium cocktails. Grab a drink and a bite from the Food & Beverage Hut, grab a spot by the river, sit back and enjoy the Riverwalk in this relaxing dog and kid-friendly environment.

Free live music plays DAILY from the Pergola Stage from Memorial Weekend through Labor Day. And we are excited to introduce a NEW MONTHLY DJ Series, featuring a live DJ spinning on the 1st Thursday of each month (June – Sept). Check our website for full listings. No reservations necessary! Just come on down and grab yourself a spot!

The Northman also caters for outdoor events large and small in a casual and stunning downtown environment, please email for more information.
