A great place to relax and enjoy fine wines and satisfying brews.

Chicago has a well deserved reputation as a sports bar kind of town, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find appealing wine bars here. One of them is Rittergut, located between Madison and Monroe on Wacker Drive.

At this cozy bar and restaurant, you can enjoy a selection of fine wines by the glass, by the bottle, or even by the flight, accompanied by small plates or by a full meal. Rittergut’s location next to the Lyric Opera of Chicago make it an appealing spot for a pre- or post-performance drink, or just some quality people watching. The outdoor seating with scenic river views makes this one of the more appealing happy hour destinations in the neighborhood, particularly because you’ll find $8 food specials from 3-5:30 p.m. during weekdays. Other weekly specials offer impressive savings on wine (bottles of rose are 25% off on Mondays and Fridays), appetizers, and entrees.
