Standout Dining in a World-Class Culinary City

There’s service; then there’s hospitality — a long-held value at the heart of everything we do. Experience a genuinely warm welcome at Upstairs at The Gwen, our Art Deco-inspired rooftop retreat, offering seemingly endless skyline vistas, sunrise to sundown dining, and masterful mixology in a laid-back, twinkle-lit atmosphere. 

Or, embark on a culinary journey to Kostali by Naha, where James Beard Award-winning chef Carrie Nahabedian guides the kitchen, creating casually elegant Mediterranean fare and a transportive coastal experience in the heart of Chicago. The only thing to rival The Gwen’s dining options? The gorgeous spaces that house them.
