Overview

Located on Chicago’s famed Michigan Avenue across from iconic Millennium Park in the Loop District, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel combines its storied legacy as one of the nation’s most revered social clubs with modern day sophistication. The historic building’s transformation into a 241-room boutique hotel, is the result of a visionary partnership between the former hotel management company, AJ Capital Partners, Geolo Capital, Agman Partners, Chicago-based Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, and award-winning design firm Roman and Williams Building and Interiors.

The hotel, now managed by Hyatt Hotels Corporation, offers sweeping views of Lake Michigan, elegantly-appointed guest rooms and uniquely-designed suites, with multiple innovative culinary experiences. The seven food and beverage outlets include Cindy's, a rooftop restaurant and bar, restaurant concepts by Chicago-based Land & Sea Dept., Shake Shack, and Fairground Coffee & Tea.

Old-school charm meets modern-day revelry at this urban playground, you in?

DINING

Cindy's

Cindy’s is our rooftop restaurant, bar and open-air terrace overlooking Millennium Park, the Art Institute of Chicago, Lake Michigan and beyond. Set within a vaulted glass and steel rooftop atrium recalling the train depot that once lived across Michigan Avenue, Cindy’s is the jewel in this Chicago landmark’s crown.

With seasonal freshness reflected in both food and drink, this downtown Chicago rooftop restaurant dons the relaxed ambiance of a Great Lakes beach house with one heckuva view. Executive Chef Christian Ragano, veteran of local favorite NoMi and creator of Glencoe’s much loved Guildhall, joins forces with renowned Spirit Guide Nandini Khaund to bring classic comfort and culinary invention together over cocktails and deceptively sinful punches. Private restaurant dining is available.

MONDAY – FRIDAY

Lunch 11:00 am – 2:30 pm
4:00 pm – 2:00 am

SATURDAY

Brunch 10:00 am – 2:30 pm
4:00 pm – 3:00 am

SUNDAY

Brunch 10:00 am – 2:30 pm

Cherry Circle Room

Amid surroundings that evoke visions of two (or three) martini deal closing lunches or post trial celebration feasts of Chicago’s mid-century power brokers, the swell curves and swank wood panels of Cherry Circle Room are being put to work - or make that play - in our own creative take on familiar regional fine dining classics, including table-side presentations of the finest cuts. Executive Chef Peter Coenen’s rustic yet refined menu gets creative with familiar regional classics at this fine dining restaurant, while one of Chicago’s star barmen, Paul McGee, elevates the cocktail program with classic recipes and table-side cocktail service. Both are in cahoots with the award-winning creative minds of Chicago’s own Land and Sea Dept., purveyors of Longman & Eagle, beloved for its distinctively American farm-to-table, nose-to-tail ethos.

HOURS

BRUNCH/LUNCH
7:00 am – 2:30 pm

DINNER
5:00 pm – Midnight
(until 1:00 am Thurs – Sat)

 

Milk Room

Once a speakeasy used by members during prohibition, Milk Room delves into the past with a cocktail menu featuring only the rarest vintage spirits and a wide variety of whiskies. A quick-service coffee and pastry café by day and a prohibition-era Chicago speakeasy bar by night, Milk Room will soon transform in the evening hours, becoming an exclusive, eight-seat bar serving Beverage Director Paul McGee’s menu of classic, spirit-forward cocktails crafted from only the rarest elixirs and ingredients. You’ll not only be “drinking a little bit of history,” as Paul says, but creating some epic stories of your own at our downtown Chicago whiskey bar.

DAILY CAFE SERVICE

7:00 am – 2:30 pm
5 pm – 12 midnight

Game Room

Originally the billiards room of CAA, Game Room is reborn as a casual playground and bar paying homage to our clubby past for a new era of competitive smackdowns. Sporting a fresh and multifarious downtown Chicago nightlife experience on the Association’s second floor, a deep cocktail culture paired with classic suds and grub plays exceptionally well with the gamesmanship you’ll find on the built-in bocce bay, billiard, shuffleboard, chess, and checkers tables.

HOURS

DAILY
11:00 am – 2:00 am

SATURDAY
11:00 am – 3:00 am

Shake Shack

Where else can you chow down on burgers, hot dogs, and frozen custard shakes surrounded by stained glass, soaring ceilings, and marble staircases? So bring your lunchtime, post-workout, and after-work appetites to downtown Chicago at this contemporary landmark on Michigan Avenue that’s famous for burgers and shakes done right, with hand-selected beers and wines, too.

HOURS DAILY
11:00 am – 11:00 pm
