Stopped in for late night food. Had the poutine which served it’s purpose but overall felt very touristy and was like being in a UK Wetherspoons. Waiter was polite. Wouldn’t go again.

Went there with 9 others after the Chicago Marathon. I was 5 minutes behind the group on arrival so I have no idea why we were in 3 separate booths. They were a little busy so maybe that was the best available for immediate seating. I think the group was trying to go with the English Pub concept and ordered... More

Food was disappointing and service slow even though it was not busy during our visit. Main benefit is the proximity to the Central Loop hotel, making it a convenient location for hotel residents. If it's trying to emulate a British pub, it's failed miserably.

ordered the food via the room service from the Club quarters hotel, it was a turkey wrap with salad. Nothing special, not sure if the main restaurant is better but i did not find it nice at all.

This bar is attached to the Club Quarters Hotel. The staff are not attentive at all and if they can stop talking to each other long enough to be bothered to serve you are inefficient and clumsy. I made the mistake of eating here one evening. The food was waiting in the kitchen while the staff chattered to each other.... More

Breakfast and menu selection just so so. Pretty bad service. Waitress not very attentive even though the place was not very busy. Table of six adults. Took a long time for orders to arrive. All hot food was cold. Not sure where she dissapeared to.

This restaurant bar is attached to the club quarters hotel. Good place to grab a drink at night or breakfast in the morning. Both were good and prices are reasonable for downtown.

this restaurant was connected to our hotel although no discount offered. It is English pub food. It was ok, although I found it very salty. I had poutines and beef and mushroom pie.

Met for quick dinner and cocktail. We ordered spinach dip, salads, calamari and chicken pot pie. All was good.

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.
