Time Out says

The man behind White Palace Grill and Hollywood Grill is behind this affordable Loop diner stocked with a full bar and a menu of munchies, hot sandwiches and breakfast served all day. And since it’s not every day you come across a rooftop deck in the middle of the Loop, we recommend taking it upstairs if weather permits for an after-work drink.

I'm confused how I lived in Chicago an entire year before going to Plymouth. I don't go out in the Loop often just because it's fairly expensive, but Plymouth is a solid exception. I went after work with friends and it was great! They have a rooftop which is a main attraction. I went in the winter and the rooftop was shockingly still enjoyable. I'm really excited to hit it up in the summer time though. It had a fairly ordinary drink and dinner menu, but the perfect atmosphere.

Summers in Chicago means baseball, street festivals and rooftop bars. Although most rooftop bars are only open during the warm season, Plymouth is open all year round. Neatly tucked away on Plymouth Ct. (between Jackson and Van Buren street), the rooftop bar offers a different view of the city. It is a great place to enjoy a drink with friends after work or on the weekends to start the night out on the town. 

The menu options are typical of a bar and grill. Although, you can find healthy options such as the baked chicken wings; which I recommend. The wait staff and bartenders are friendly and helpful. This place is definitely not a tourist trap nor is it a hole in the wall. With the "L" only a block away, getting to the bar is convenient. Plymouth cannot compete with the many chic rooftop bars in the city, but then again, it doesn't have to. Places like Plymouth are what makes Chicago a great city.
