Cherry Circle Room is the reinvention of the iconic restaurant of the same name that has serviced the Chicago Athletic Association and its members for generations. The intimate, James Beard award-winning space ('Outstanding Restaurant Design') has been fully reimagined and restored by Land and Sea Dept., melding the building's historic original features with modern design elements that root the experience firmly in the present.
Land and Sea Dept.’s beverage director Paul McGee offers a cocktail program with an emphasis on American and Scotch whiskey, featuring both seasonal house cocktails and a rotating menu of specialty drinks inspired by an historic bartender or cocktail book. The cocktail program also includes tableside drink service, offering preparations of Manhattans, Martinis, and Old Fashioneds.
We feature an approachable and classic wine program for the Cherry Circle Room, placing an emphasis on American and French wine, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir dominated blends
