Wicker Park finally has its game-changing and long-awaited boutique hotel. And for fans of eating and drinking on one of the most visible corners in Chicago, that means a sparkling new French-inspired ground-floor restaurant, and 12th-floor rooftop lounge, and much more.
The Robey and The Hollander opened for business this week, and with them Cafe Robey, its second-floor lounge, Up & Up rooftop lounge, and The Hollander’s casual hot dog eatery/drinking cafe/bike repair shop. Cabana Club, the indoor/outdoor bar with a swimming pool located on The Hollander’s sixth-floor rooftop, is slated for a spring 2017 opening.

Then proceed below to read the dinner, brunch, drink and dessert menus for Cafe Robey and The Hollander’s cafe, which serves hot dogs, bottled cocktails, craft and cheap beer, and boilermakers. Rooms at both hotels are open for booking now too, but the general public is free to eat and drink at all the restaurants and bars, although Up & Up prioritizes hotel guests first.
