Basically in downtown Chicago a few blocks from every place, this Rock Bottom is typically clean with wood and shiny brass like a hotel lobby. To the left of the entry it has a dozen or so stools at a bar with table seating that looks out to the street through large windows. An equally large bar area with tables and a big screen tv is to the right of the entrance.Upstairs is a roof top lounge with a great view of the city streets with all the people walking around.This Thursday night in July the roof was basically a meat market, with 20 somethings sucking down yellow beers and margaritas while trying not to look too self conscious.
Service was good and savvy to the beer offerings. We had the brewery beer and cheese taster which offers 3 beers along with some tasty cheese, sausage, and crackers.
The beers are pretty good all around, this visit they offered up a coffee porter and the American Dream IPA as the seasonals.
A good place to go if you're downtown on a trip or something , but the Chi town cabbies and expensive parking would keep me from driving here very often.
