American Tavern Classics — On The Riverfront Steps From The Magnificent Mile


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

Guests are drawn to Beacon Tavern’s custom tile, upholstery and lighting, touches of whimsy, and décor with both rustic and vintage touches. And, with many years of experience executing events at its partner restaurants Acanto, Coda di Volpe, The Dawson and The Gage, Beacon Tavern’s seasoned staff is committed to providing the superior level of hospitality expected from a team led by restaurateur Billy Lawless.
