Upstairs at The Gwen invites guests to enjoy casual dining and cocktails while admiring picturesque views of downtown Chicago's Wrigley Building and Marina Towers from our open-air terrace.

Perched on the fifth floor, this exquisite rooftop dining spot is elevated by slate tile floors and vibrant greenery balancing a chic palette of gray, black, and fuchsia. The centerpiece of the space is a communal banquet fire table that seats up to 18. Large umbrellas provide ample shade from the Chicago summer sun while plush sofas and ottomans warmed by the flickering flames of a corner fire pit allow guests to take in the indelible city lights even when the temperatures drop. Plentiful tables and chairs offer the perfect rooftop perch for sharing a meal or enjoying a nightcap.

Our delectable lunch and dinner menus include blue-crab dip served on a crispy baguette, tuna poke with avocado and soy-sauce gelée, and Italian sausage and kale flat bread with whipped ricotta. Complementing the dining experience, our exclusive array of cocktails includes our signature Poptail—a Prosecco popsicle—available in ginger cucumber, gin or strawberry peach vodka flavors. Guests can share our Social Sips, large-format cocktails that serve four to six people; specialties include our Prohibition Punch—a refreshing concoction of Pama Pomegranate Liqueur, EFFEN Dutch Raspberry Vodka, triple sec, and lime juice—and our Bubble Bucket of four miniature bottles of La Marca Prosecco.
