On a little "girls getaway", we stayed at a near by hotel that recommended Rudy's for some late night cocktails. Our bartender was great, the martini's were delicious and well worth the money. And well worth the "two martini maximum" policy! We ended up chatting with the manager, Angel for a very long time who made us feel like we... More

In the city for a wedding and bellhop recommended this place. Bar food at its finest. Great waitress by the name of Destiny. First day by herself and she was excellent. All four of us had something different and it was all great. You will not go away hungry. Will definitely return.

This is a nice little place to get not only a burger but some phenomenal broasted chicken. Prices are good for the area and the staff gives excellent service.

There were 5 of us eating and I will say that all 5 of us order a different burger and we were all very pleased. Good service.

We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel. Great food and drink. I had the BLT and my friend had sliders. Wanted to go back for BLT again but we didn't have time - it was that good. Reasonable prices - Lemon-drop martinis - Yum!

We're from a small town in Michigan, so when we go to Chicago, we usually try to find a place that doesn't charge the usual "Chicago" prices. For us, this place had food in a decent price range, but $7.50 for a glass of house white wine was steep. However, this was our last night in the big city, so... More

Nice atmosphere for a late dinner or burger. Definitely a sports bat vibe with tv's and casual atmosphere. I got a swiss mushroom burger on a pretzel roll and it defintely hit the spot for what I was needing.

We were hesitant when we saw the restaurant, but so glad we went inside and ate. Our burgers were amazing!

The service was excellent and the menu the here was typical of a US bar. Americans love their burgers (everyone has the best!) but they are nowhere as good as an Aussie take-away burger, though the meat tends to be more flavoursome. A friendly place to eat with a good bar selection.

On January 25th we wanted to try a new restaurant while visiting Chicago on business and found out about this restaurant from a brochure in our hotel room. What caught my eye was the description of menu favorite Chocolate Milkshake Martini, so we thought lunch would be the best time to check it out. We went to lunch early because... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood 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.
