This Industrial Tavern concept was derived from the two owners (Mark Hemmer and Ryan See), with an eye towards a comfort.  We wanted to offer a place for Chicagoans to come downtown and enjoy sitting at the bar with friends, or having a memorable dinner at an iconic outdoor venue.  There’s simply no other place in downtown Chicago that allows you the feel of Bridge House Tavern.  We’re open for lunch, brunch and dinner 7 days a week, and focused on creating an experience for every patron.

Chicago has a long history with its bridges, so you can look down the row of bridge lights above the bar and truly feel like you’re going back in time.  And as you can tell by the wood panels and the flagstone walls, everything about the interior says ‘Industrial Tavern’.  We took the same approach with our menu by offering exciting ingredient pairings that will give diners a memorable experience.

We look forward to having you visit!
