Inspired by the 'Main Stem' river district location, RAISED | An Urban Rooftop Bar delivers unparalleled service and breathtaking views of Chicago. The name RAISED, refers to many conceptual layers: the iconic bascule drawbridges that line the Chicago river, the river locks that raise the water for passing boats, and the elevation of the urban rooftop location. The name also draws inspiration from the urban gardener and the DIY hop grower, brew master, or wine maker with the notion of raised garden beds, hop plants and grape vines.

With an industrial aesthetic, eclectic style and raw finishes, raised welcomes locals and guests to enjoy the indoor/outdoor bar, open roof deck and private outdoor areas overlooking the scenic downtown Chicago River view.

We have raised the bar of service while encouraging you to enjoy the relaxed luxury atmosphere and to raise your glass in celebration to an unforgettable Chicago dining experience.

    Wonderful atmosphere and great ambience. You are only allowed to sit for 90minutes but once we ordered more drinks they didn’t bother as much! Great for an after work spot and would definitely come again. Tad bit pricey

    The comment on service isn’t about our Server- the customer service of the manager of the establishment and hostess are what is in question. We arrived and two tables that arrived after us were seated first- one of which was a friend of the manager- Emmanuel Hunter. Not only did he give his friends our table but he also was very rude to us. Our last visit for sure.

    We booked a reservation for outdoor patio seating. When we arrived they tried to seat us in a cramped greenhouse that didn’t even have enough tables to seat our party of five. When we said we had booked an outdoor patio table and not one of the greenhouses (that require a food and bev min), we were told it’s all the same. We asked to move to a different greenhouse with a bigger table but it was still stuffy and cramped - not at all the outdoor, open air dining experience we planned for. Eventually one of the few outdoor seating areas opened up and the manager offered to move us there. It was much more comfortable and had a nice view of the river. The only problem was it was sofa and fire table seating which would make dining a challenge. We decided to go ahead and take it. The atmosphere outdoors was nice and the drinks we ordered were good. But when we told our server that we intended to order dinner and just needed a couple more minutes, he never returned nor did we see him again. He finally came back to announce that our 90 minute reservation would soon be over and we needed to finish up. We explained that we never had a chance to actually order our dinner and without apology said he would talk to the manager. He returned and said the manager was giving him a “hard no” and said maybe we would have better luck if we tried talking to him. When the manager arrived, we explained the situation and were told that the best he could do was give us 30 more minutes. But he couldn’t promise that he would be able to get our food out in time for us to actually eat it. Then he said we could move indoors if we wanted to. We declined and asked for our bill, saying we would go dine somewhere else. He offered no apology, no complimentary anything. We spent nearly $200 and 2 hours and didn’t even have dinner. We were polite, not rowdy, a professional crowd. It was baffling. The manager insisted he had a bunch of reservations waiting. As we left there were 3 ppl at the host stand.

    We were seated at the most hidden table in the back they could give us, we were given water and dipped before the server could come get our order. Glad there was a chick-fil-a nearby

    Service was absolutely horrible the server Felipe ignored us and then rushed us through ordering the host who I think was the manager also was way nicer and helped us way more than our server and then the bill comes with an automatic 20% service charge so now I’m realizing why he was so brash he knew he was going to get his tip from us either way. The food would have been good but it was brought out between warm and cold temp. Wouldn’t recommend to friends definitely would not go back myself

    Rooftop sight is great. The host of the night was actually very helpful. He was able to accommodate us to a table inside, although we had it reserved for outdoors. I just would probably not come back. Server took long to attend our table, forgot our requests, had no sense of urgency to attend to our needs. Food was not all great and overpriced. Drinks were ok. They even gave themselves a service charge. Only go if you want to sip a beer while looking out at the city.

    Came here for our Valentine’s Day dinner and the man who was the general MANAGER was extremely rude to me and my boyfriend. We got sat down in this back area (no one else was there) We asked if we could switch over to another table (the place was half empty first of all) and he said no & our time would be cut in half if we sat there. He had a horrible attitude and semi ruined the night. The WAITER is the one who saved the night. He was so kind and professional. Brought us out some Champaign and had a wonderful attitude. Ricardo is his name.

    Keeping in mind this is during COVID....the food was terrible and it was $55 for a salad, hamburger pattie and fries. There was no wine available. I guess we were lucky to get food during COVID while we stayed at the hotel. We won’t be going back.
