Drinks after dinner

English style pub with good choice of beers, wines and spirits. Did not eat here but had a few drinks after eating elsewhere. Good atmosphere on a Friday night

Uninteresting. Expensive. Stuffy. Boring. Expensive beer and cocktails. Boring unimaginative menu. Ok for bar food but not atthe prices they ask. Hot and muggy. Poor ventilation. Many more worthwhile and better value choices in the neighborhood.

I was amazed at the reasonable prices for this downtown hotel. We ate three breakfasts and one dinner in this beautifully decorated restaurant. Morning oatmeal was only $6.50. Dinner entrees, in the fashion of a British pub were equally reasonable as well as delicious! I had stuffed Yorkshire Pudding and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is right next door to... More

If you are trying to impress and influence your guests, this may not be the place for you. If you are just looking for a place for a decent dinner with friends, this is a great choice. The menue is ordinary but good. The prices will not cause you to flinch as long as you remember you are in Chicago.... More

Our hotel was close and we weren't ready to call it a night so we stopped here. It was very busy and we waited a bit for service. Our server was super friendly and apologized. They have an excellent drink selection. I liked the fun pub atmosphere. Many of the patrons used a separate entrance to the Club Quarters hotel.... More

This was a wonderful place for beer or drinks. Locals and tourists seem to frequent the place. Staff was super friendly. The menu offers bar food...personally, I did not think much of the food...but it was wonderful for sipping beverages. :-)

We were staying in the adjoining hotel so it was very convenient on a rainy day. The food was pretty good, service was great, and the atmosphere was fun. Most people seemed to be just drinking and socializing, but my food was good. Not a lot of choices, English pub fare mostly with a few oddities.

Wide selection of beers, ales and ciders on tap. Permit drinks from the bar to be brought up to rooms by guests of the Club Quarters in Central Loop.

My daughter and I had lunch at Elephant & Castle on a weekday and it was very enjoyable. The place is cozy and comfortable. It was a very nice environment in the middle of the busy city. Brian, our waiter, was attentive and courteous. He did a great job and made our lunch very pleasant.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
