The Best Gastropubs in Chicago

““The Dawson has everything you can ask for in a gastropub—a convivial vibe, clever bites and great libations. Inside, globe lights shine like beacons through the façade’s lofty windows. And, a wraparound bar attracts spirited guests like moths to a flame.”

— Michelin Guide

Chicago Bars With Amazing Outdoor Patios

“Enjoy one of The Dawson’s wild, shareable drinks in their incredibly picturesque outdoor space this year. Seriously – it’s like Instagram came to life out there.”

Where to Eat Brunch Outside in Chicago

“It's all too easy to spend the afternoon sipping frozen cocktails on this sprawling, sun-drenched patio. But first: Coat your belly with brunch favorites like the chorizo hash, which is covered in chihuahua cheese, pickled jalapeños and a sunny-side up egg. Sweet seekers will love the bread pudding French toast with coffee mascarpone, candied walnuts and brûléed banana.”
