Chicago Speakeasy & Tavern

The Franklin Room celebrates the sense of connection that neighborhood taverns in Chicago have cultivated in our city for centuries. Our menu features comforting and flavorful turn of the century inspired American tavern fare. Our beverage program showcases a creative cocktail program, thoughtful selection of fine spirits, wine and beer, and a strong focus on independent distillers and limited-edition rare releases.
