Lounges in the Gold Coast Overview

McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon - Irish Pub | Irish Restaurant | Sports Bar in Gold Coast, Chicago

The swanky Gold Coast naturally has many swanky lounges. More than in nearby brash and clubby River North, lounges in the Gold Coast tend to be intimate, exclusive spots. Hotel lounges are the new spots for the see-and-be-seen crowd, and almost all of the upscale hotels in this area have plush lounges full of stylish and good-looking people.

At the ultramodern Sofitel Hotel, Le Bar offers wine and cheese flights by its fireplace or at its stainless steel bar. Vibrant purple chairs and low-backed loungers take up most of the space inside, while a sofa-lined terrace draws the dapper crowd out to enjoy organic small bites and Chicago’s brief but warm summers. Floor-to-ceiling windows promise cheery natural light and great views of nearby Connors Park during the day, but the biggest crowd shows up after sunset, as passionate foodies stop in for salmon baguettes and absinthe-infused cocktails and groups of friends get together for a relaxed round before dinner at the hotel’s Café des Architectes, or before venturing out for rowdier pursuits.

At the nearby Park Hyatt, NoMi Lounge, attached to upscale restaurant NoMi, lets loungers gaze upon the masses on Michigan Avenue while enjoying their cocktails. In good weather, it bestows even more privilege when its gorgeous outdoor sanctuary opens for late-night cocktails.

Away from the hotels, lounges like Proof have a clubbier feel but keep things exclusive with strict door policies and guest lists. Once past the discerning doormen, visitors to these Gold Coast lounges enjoy bottle service and other perks of the VIP life. Purveyors of the high life who want a break from high-octane clubbing can sit back and relax at these spots.
