The Library

Hidden in the basement through the anonymous side door, The Library nods to Chicago's speakeasy history by distilling Gilt Bar to its essence, a wine-toned jewel box with velvet booths, vintage art, fringed chandeliers and, of course, books, all surrounding one of the most beautiful bars in the city. The Library is open Thursday from 6pm-10:30pm and Friday-Saturday from 6pm-11pm. Limited reservations for the Library are released every Wednesday for that week, pending any private events. We always save room for walk-in guests.
