Great drinks and food, good vibe at Rebar. There were few people that had small children there, not the place. Its more of a bar/meeting place for adults.

Comfortable, upscale, in the Trump tower, over looking the river. Had a fun signature drink with complimentary peppered popcorn & allspice Fava beans! Unique with a great view.

As a part of a girls' weekend, we stopped by Rebar. Since we weren't guests of the Trump hotel, we didn't get the window seating. Instead we were seated in chairs with a very, very low table. It was comical. We both ordered the expensive cocktails and they were delicious! We only had one each before moving along.

This is definitely a place to visit when you're in Chicago. It's on one of the lower floors of the trump tower and the view of the river is beautiful. Drinks are pricey, but it's worth the visit!

Decent spot for a drink with nice views overlooking the rover. I'd definitely return but I would have preferred that: (1) they learned how to make a dark and stormy. I think they used white rum and ginger ale rather than dark rum and ginger beer - big difference on both -- and... (2) we could be sit at a... More

Great view, excellent drinks, in upscale atymosphere. Fortunatey, we arrived for an early weekend drink and had an excellent table overlooking the Chicago River. View was magnificant, service was low key and polite. No menu was provided but we asked for a cheese tray and it was very good. Probably the most expensive martini I have had, but the view... More

By far the best views right over the river sitting in a very comfy chair with pillows, good service, and loved the spiced corn nuts on the table. Nice wine selection. The sauvignon blanc from Austria yummy.
