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 books all surrounding one of the most beautiful bars in the city. The Library is open Sunday-Thursday from 6pm-10:30pm and Friday and Saturday from 6pm-11pm. Limited reservations for The Library are released every Wednesday for the next week, pending any private events. We always save room for walk-in guests. Beginning the week of April 15th, the Library at Gilt Bar will be open Thursday- Saturday evenings only and closed Sunday- Wednesday.
