Celebrate Dad With Us

Raise a glass to dad with us at the hotel


JUNE 2018 – If you love your dad and much as we love our dads, you’ll want to join us here at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel for a variety of culinary feasts. Why bother firing up your own backyard grill when we can do it for you? We’re offering a couple different meat-centric ways you can show dad you’re his #1 fan.

Cherry Circle Room will have a Blue Plate Special dinner starting at 5 p.m. The dinner includes spare ribs, corn on the cob, BBQ beans, cornbread and hot links — plus a beer and shot special. The dinner will cost $35 and you can make reservations now via OpenTable.

Up on our roof, Cindy’s will also get meaty with a menu featuring smoked Snake River Farms wagyu beef cheeks served with Texas caviar, grilled sweet potato and a zesty poblano cream. Make the meal even more special by ordering our Bonfire cocktail. This unique libation features wagyu beef fat-washed Pikesville rye whiskey, Belgian biscuit malt, Benedictine and Dram Apothecary’s Palo Santo “Holy Wood” bitters, which add the perfect amount of smoky, woodsy qualities to bring about dad’s best campfire memories. Save your spot at the table by calling Cindy’s at 312-792-3502 or visiting the restaurant’s website to book a reservation.
