Highlighting the rich diversity of American cuisine, Upstairs at The Gwen serves three meals a day in an elegant space that gives a wink to Chicago’s storied past. Located on the 5th floor, Upstairs offers a variety of seating options — from cozy banquettes to communal tables — allowing guests to tailor their dining experience. For groups, Upstairs at The Gwen also offers private dining rooms, which can be reserved for intimate affairs, special occasions, and events.

Perched on the fifth floor of the landmark McGraw-Hill building, Upstairs at The Gwen focuses on the art of craft cocktails paired with shareable small plate fare, and boasts cityscape views from among the Art Deco-infused architecture of The Gwen.
