Inspired by the fire pit council rings at Promontory Point, this neighborhood destination’s restaurant & bar are designed around a brick hearth that reflects simple traditions in a modern context. Drawing inspiration from the open hearth, the cocktail program focuses on modern twists on classic cocktails; and the wine program highlights historically significant wine regions and forgotten grape varieties, giving the list a uniquely curated character. Just as the restaurant pays tribute to the neighborhood, the upstairs venue honors Hyde Park’s musical legacy. With its modern design, crisp acoustics, and exciting music programming, The Promontory is dedicated to celebrating the eras when spacious ballrooms and jumping jazz clubs made Chicago’s South Side the capital of American music. It’s the perfect space to host weddings, corporate events, and birthday celebrations.
