October 29, 2019

At LEVEL in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood you’re just steps from many of the city’s best foodie destinations. Looking for a traditional midwestern steakhouse, an upscale sports bar, epic wine lists or a classic martini? Here are a few of our favorite places to eat and drink:


Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse

Classic fare comes with a side of people-watching at the original location of the chophouse chain. Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse has been a Chicago icon since opening its doors 30 years ago. Gibsons continues to be a must-visit Chicago dining destination for celebrities, tourists, and locals alike. The classic American steakhouse features Gibsons Prime Angus beef, fresh fish, classic cocktails, an extensive wine list and uncompromising service.

Maple & Ash

We always recommend this posh steakhouse & seafood eatery for their white-tablecloth service, impeccable wine list and James Bond worthy martini lounge. Originally founded in 2015 in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, Maple & Ash is an innovative take on the traditional steakhouse – mixing a modern aesthetic with authentic service to deliver classic wood-fired dishes. With a sumptuous menu crafted by two-Michelin-starred Chef Danny Grant and a wine list named “one of the most outstanding in the world” by Wine Spectator, Maple & Ash finds a way to celebrate every moment.



The VIG Chicago

The VIG is a hip, warehouse-style spot with gastropub eats, craft beer & cocktails, plus TVs & sports-themed art – a 1950’s themed sports parlor in the heart of Old Town with a refined kitchen and classic cocktails. The concept centers around the playful story line that “it’s good to be bad”, drawing on inspiration found in movies, sports and history. An amazing place for dinner and drinks, with an expansive menu of elevated classic American fare, it’s also known for it’s outstanding brunch.

This modern two-level pub with outdoor seating in the warmer months is known for its sliders, steaks & salads. The quintessential American bar, LUXBAR features seasonal and classic cocktails made from freshly pressed juices, premium ice, house made shrubs, and an extensive selection of spirits that runs especially deep in whiskey and bourbon. A “Build Your Own Manhattan” menu, thoughtful, approachable wine list, and beer menu with vintage and local options make the bar a go-to for casual, mid-week drinks and bites with friends, watching weekend sports and post-shopping. The all-day food menu and weekend brunch mirror the bar’s classic approach and emphasis on high-quality ingredients with made-from-scratch American favorites.
