After its glorious success in New York city, the City Winery has extended its purview and opened an outlet in Chicago. This winery is more than just a place to sample wines, it is an entertainment hub of the city. Food and wine tastings, concert series, special lunches, fund-raising brunches and much more is hosted here. So while you sip and enjoy every bit of the fine wine, renowned artists/bands will entertain you. For upcoming events and other information, check its website.... less

We had an excellent view and the show was outstanding.Our server worked very hard and was very friendly. He and Jean-Luc are the reasons that this is a 4 star and not a 3.Seating at the tables is shoulder to shoulder crowded. I had the very end seat and felt blessed (I think we had some man-spreaders at our table).We ordered Ancho-rubbed Octopus ($15) and Mushroom Flatbread ($16). The octopus was charred and good, the flatbread was merely ok. During the evening we had a bottle of CW 2015 West Loop Red ($33) and later a bottle of CW West Loop White ($24). The separate charges for Food Excise Tax ($3.57) and Alcohol Excise Tax ($6.56) were high. I also felt the portion sizes on the food were small for the price and that the quality of the wine did not stand up to the price. Overall, food and beverage for 2 people including tip was $114. I'm not sure what the tickets were as they were a gift from my husband to me.This is the kind of venue that attracts many baby-boomers that want to show off. We were seated across from a couple that when we started discussing Jean-Luc's catalog, launched into a litany of all the "great" musicians they had seen. As the woman drank and drank, she started regaling us with stories of the musicians she had slept with including two from major '80's bands, and that she couldn't even remember the guys' names. Hmmmmmm....I wonder if she is still married to that second husband of hers that she was with that night?This venue is way out of the main part of the City. We took the train and thought it would be a short walk. It wasn't. Inconvenient if you are staying on The Magnificent Mile. It would have to be an amazing musician performing there for me to go back. Great music but everything else was pretty mediocre.... less

A big thank you again! We came from Montréal, Canada and totally appreciated this very nice friendly gesture.... less

Was so excited and experience matched my excitement. Starting with the adorable greeter who walked us to our seats at the bar we thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening. Bartenders were fabulous, and, had to get the duck tacos again. Favorite there. Bartender, Chris, we really patient with me (pretty picky drinker), thanks, Chris! Concert was amazing, just love you Keb Mo! Seats were great. Have been here 6+ times and still trying to find my favorite seats.... but all are good! Will be back in July to see the Bacon Brothers.... less

    If you can afford it, a good venue for music, food, and wine. Not cheap--but reasonable value. We had pan seared chicken, braised short ribs, and a creamy swiss chard dish...along with CW-made malbec,... moreIf you can afford it, a good venue for music, food, and wine. Not cheap--but reasonable value. We had pan seared chicken, braised short ribs, and a creamy swiss chard dish...along with CW-made malbec, which was quite good. For 3 of us drinking/dining, tab was $155 before tip (no dessert). That didn't include concert tix. I can't say I'd spend that much just for the food, but it was worth it as an accompaniment to a wonderful concert (Funkadesi).... less
