If you’re looking for a great place to spend an afternoon or evening in the heart of Chicago, look no further than Plymouth Restaurant and Bar. This establishment is located near the loop, and offers some of the best views of the cityscape that you’ll find anywhere.
The rooftop bar is definitely worth a visit, especially on a nice day. And if you’re lucky enough to catch live music here, don’t miss it!
How We Found the Plymouth Restaurant and Bar
At least once a year, a few of my girlfriends and I plan a getaway. We’ve done them in Florida, Ocean City, Chicago, and other great places. This particular trip was to Chicago. We had flown, drove, or bussed for hours to get there around the same time.
Once we arrived at our hotel, we quickly realized that our room would not be ready for a few hours. So we found a secure place to store our luggage and grabbed our backpacks with our valuables, and happened upon the Plymouth Restaurant and Bar.
What We Loved
The Food – We each tried something different. I had the fish and chips with criss-cut fries, which was amazing! In my party, we also tried a burger and a salad. Everyone loved their food.
The Drinks – We just traveled for hours and had no kids or real adult responsibilities. We needed drinks… the bartender was great, giving us some fresh fruit options and making everyone something different. They were all delicious!
What We Didn’t Love
The Bathrooms – While there was nothing wrong with the functionality of the restrooms, the fact that you had to take an elevator to a different floor in the building seemed a little odd.
If you’re looking for a great place to grab a drink with friends or relax after a busy day in the city, Plymouth Restaurant and Bar should definitely be on your list. The food and drinks are great, the views are unbeatable, and the atmosphere is perfect for unwinding. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in town!
