Restaurant Group

Part of Union Hospitality Group

Union Hospitality Group is a dynamic restaurant group creating fun and delicious restaurant concepts based in Chicago, IL. Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar was our first concept combining the tempered art of Japanese dining with a fresh, colorful and urban vibe. The Franklin Room followed as a proper city tavern serving inspired American fare & fine spirits that Chicago speakeasy's have celebrated for centuries. The Madison Bar * Kitchen, an urban-American restaurant with a variety of big city flavors, is our third concept scheduled to open in Fall 2016.
