With the completion of Phase 1 of The Metropolitan’s reinvention, our new bar concept is now open and ready to entertain members and guests. This anytime, all-occasion place to eat, drink, entertain and relax will feature live entertainment, a photo booth, lounge area and a robust cocktail menu. If you are eager to check out the elevated bar, here’s a teaser to satisfy your appetite.
Along with the exciting new bar comes a reimagined food, drink and menu program inspired by local, Chicago foods. As you eat your way through the menu, you’ll find familiar food items from across the city, such as veggie quinoa sliders; lemongrass potstickers; lamb sliders; poutine with pulled pork; fish tacos; energy bites. The menu also features a variety of local beers, wines, standard and signature cocktails, such as the 1871 Smoke Manhattan, which pays tribute to the rebuilding of the city after the Great Chicago Fire.
The reinvention is changing more than the bar experience at The Metropolitan. We also modernized the dining experiences with our new restaurant (Craftsman) and are creating state-of-the-art workspaces and amenities (Blueprint) with a Chicago-inspired mantra.
