We had stayed at a nearby hotel in the past and had wanted to visit but hadn't. This visit we did and were very disappointed. Upon entering the hostess didn't say anything except hello. We looked down and she was off to seat us even though we were going to sit at the bar. When she finally turned around to... More

It was such a treat to find a piece of England on our visit to Chicago! Being British we had high expectations but it did not disappoint, it was so good we visited twice! The food was fantastic, Yorkshire puddings were spot on, it even had the classic English pub carpets. Highly recommend this place, the staff I met were... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch with family and decided to try Elephant Castle. Ordered fish tacos and turkey sandwich, both were cold and with no flavor. Didn't like the place at all.

Great British pub with a very interesting menu, it used the butter chicken sauce intelligently in its menu. Don't miss Slum dog, the butter chicken poutinerie And curried chicken flat bread. The Pimms cocktail is amazing too. Worth your visit , piece of London in Chicago! My family loved it!

My husband, son and I lunched here today after visiting the Merchandise Mart. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and an even friendlier waiter all dressed in a holiday sweater. We had a large selection of adult beverages to choose from and found the perfect one to pair with our lunch. We had sandwiches and bangers and mash.. all... More

This is absolutely the best Bloody Mary I have ever had or should I say bloody Mary's . I consider myself a bloody expert and this is without a doubt the best! I cannot believe the bar isn't packed with people partaking in this wonderful breakfast salad! My day is so much better because I started with this! So good... More

We ate here before seeing a show at the Goodman Theatre. It's also close to the Chicago Theatre. The service was spot on even though it was busy and we didn't wait for a table on a Friday night. We enjoyed a bacon cheeseburger and two orders of the fish tacos. Everything was very good. They also had an extensive... More

Came in for a light lunch before our flight home. It was very nice to have an English cider. Food was great and was good value for money.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
