This place has some tasty drinks! The gals at the door and who serve you are so friendly, and helpful and cheerful! They make you feel welcome, they remember you. The food is delicious and there are lots of options!

The staff was great - but the atmosphere (we were the only ones there) and food were just okay. It might just be the food choice that I didn't like, more than anything.More

Not the best hotel bar but not the worst. Drinks are average priced and lounge caters to conference/meeting attendees. Service is mediocre but location is comfy.More

The take out was very good. The veggie burger was excellent! The crab cakes were okay but not as good as the veggie burger. I would eat here again and recommend to others.

Encore is a quick, casual place for lunch, and a relaxing lounge for drinks and small plates after work or before a show. Located in the heart of the Chicago's Loop, and just steps away from theaters and City Hall. Choose from a variety of hand-carved sandwiches and wraps before you head out for a day of sight-seeing, and sink into one of our luxurious booths, martini in hand, as you unwind from a busy day of shopping.
