Just like this chain's locations in New York City, Napa and Nashville, the West Loop's City Winery serves up plenty of food, beverages and live music. The booking leans heavily on adult contemporary artists (Bilal, Bob Mould) and legacy acts (Dr. John, Lucinda Williams), attracting an older crowd that enjoys dinner and a show. If you're looking for a music venue with a wine list that goes deeper than "red or white," stop by City Winery for a glass or two.

I went to City Winery during restaurant week and loved being able to try a bunch of different things. I am obsessed with their burrata and have been back a couple times just for that and a glass of wine. I really want to go for dinner and a show sometime, and that is on my to-do list!

The acoustics of City Winery is great; the acoustics of people eating, drinking, and walking around interrupts my enjoyment of the music. The variety of the acts they book is surprising, since the venue isn’t suited for all genres. The food and drink are priced higher than I like to spend, and there isn’t much I’d eat here. The sitting area is crowded, the seats aren’t that comfortable, and you will likely strain your neck to watch the stage. Parking is decent nearby, and they also have valet.
