“Old fashioned elegance, great food!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Enjoyed dinner here while staying at the Hilton the night before our flight. Friendly staff, great cocktails and food, beautiful waitresses dressed like the Gaslight Club of 50' and 60's. A little pricey but all in all, not bad.

“Charming old piano bar”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We sat in the piano bar when some folks from the club's past were singing at the piano bar and while they were a bit off key, it was still fun watching them have a great time. There were a lot of patrons sitting around us who'd made the place a part of their lives for so many years, all of which added to the charm. There is a lot of history in this place and I hope it remains forever. We were just there for drinks but really found it to be a unique gem in the hotel.

“Tradition in Chicago”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Having been many years since I lived in Chicago, it was nice to see this past month while there that the Gaslight Club is still alive and well. While it was more of a bar night than meal, the people I was with said the food is still great there even if the prices are a bit high. I don't think the atmosphere has changed at all in 20 years...which speaks well for the staying power of old fashioned "gentlemens club" atmosphere where men are men, women are sufficiently sexy and everyone appreciates the difference.

The traditional pianobar was live and well on this Monday night we were there. The pianoplayer allowed people to "sit in" and sing with her...and Sami Scot the entertainer is one of Chicagos finest traditions of this nature. Shes the main reason we went there. But then the gorgeous and talented cocktail waitress got up and did a GREAT job on a couple tough broadway style numbers.

The whole night was a treat...though it does remind one of the cost of having a good time in Chicago. But...we will pay for traditional values...won't we? And no other airport I know of has this kind of entertainment onsite such as Ohare has.

“The piano bar is worth it”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I loved on Saturday night having a piano bar. It is an establishment that has been there for a long time and if feels that way. In some ways that is great and others not. The drinks and food are a little expensive but in the mood I was in it was a great place and all the staff wqas very friendly.

I had French onion soup which was great and rack of lamb which was good and had a very generous portion. Presentation was not great but the food was good. I liked it.

“A Chicago Style Resturant”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Fine wine, great steaks---what's not to like? An expensive dinner but always a great meal with outstanding attention to detail and service. Great for a leisurely dinner or a business meeting/meal.
