Intimate lower level wine bar in the West Loop, Chicago Illinois

The Press Room

A small restaurant with an outsize heart in Chicago’s West Loop.



When the neighborhood feels too big, when you crave closeness and a satisfying dinner, we’re here.

Our food is ingredient-driven American, sophisticated but always familiar, and welcome on any occasion. Our wines are wide-ranging and picked with purpose. Our cocktails are classic. (Is there any other kind?) Our service is true.

Our home is in a century-old building that once was a holography museum, a casket factory and the Free Methodist Publishing House—not all at once.

Every plate achieves that elusive balance of salty, savory and sweet—even dessert.

It beats staying in for the night.
