Beacon Tavern is Chicago’s riverside destination for elevated interpretations of tavern classics seafood-forward dishes, and a host of thoughtfully curated cocktails, wines and beers.

Described as “a hidden gem” by Chicago Tribune’s Phil Vettel, Beacon Tavern offers dining in a casually-upscale setting steps from the Chicago riverfront and the Magnificent Mile. Guests at Beacon Tavern enjoy spectacular city views through floor-to-ceiling windows, and an expansive outdoor patio offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle on Michigan Avenue and throughout River North.
