City Winery Returns to the Chicago Riverwalk

In the spring of 2015, the City of Chicago presented City Winery with the opportunity to open a location on the Chicago Riverwalk. This was a chance to offer our locally-made made wine in a unique beautiful setting on the Chicago River. Chicagoans and visitors alike responded very positively and we are thrilled to return to the Riverwalk in 2016.

City Winery Chicago at the Riverwalk re-opened on May 2nd on the south side of the Chicago River between State St and Dearborn St with additional space added this year to accommodate more tables and a standing Wine Garden for tastings and private events. Also new this year, City Winery at the Riverwalk will offer retail wine bottles produced at our West Loop location specifically for the Riverwalk. Beyond wine, the bar menu also includes beer, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages.

The Riverwalk serves an eclectic food menu featuring sandwiches, salads, light bites and desserts. Like our Randolph location, the food complements the wine and visitors can enjoy cheese and charcuterie with their favorite varietal.

We believe that music also pairs well with wine and adds to a unique and refined experience. We are excited to bring live music to the Riverwalk every Thursday through Sunday from 3pm to 6pm.

Whether you arrive on foot, by boat, on the train or in a taxi, we look forward to welcoming you to the City Winery at the Riverwalk. Come for a drink, a bite to eat, or bring a group for a private event in one of the most scenic settings that the city has to offer. Chicagoans have always done an exceptional job of taking advantage of good weather and we invite you to do just that at City Winery Chicago on the Riverwalk. Cheers!
