Beacon Tavern is Chicago's newest riverside destination for American fare. 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.

Beacon Tavern is known for elevated interpretations of tavern classics, seafood-forward dishes, and a host of thoughtfully curated cocktails, wines and beers.

Accessible from Upper Wabash and Upper Michigan Avenue, Beacon Tavern is nestled in the walkway between the Wrigley Building and Trump Tower.


Beacon Tavern is a Gage Hospitality Group restaurant. Sister restaurants include: The Gage, Acanto, Coda di Volpe and The Dawson.
