Gene's Rooftop Beer and Wine Garden - rooftop bar in Chicago

  • Beer & wine garden
  • Friendly atmosphere

At Lincoln Square you find the lovely Gene's Sausage Shop & Delicatessen, a large market with smoked sausages, fresh meats and European imported specialties. And on top is Gene's Rooftop Beer and Wine Garden, where you can enjoy the sausages along with beers on tap and wine by the glass from around the world.

Not your fancy rooftop cocktail lounge, but instead a European-style rooftop beer and wine garden, with flowers, herbs and community benches to sit on. Apart from susages grilled fresh on the rooftop, there is also a couple of other German-influenced dishes like 'Shish Kebab' and 'Schnitzel Platter'.

A fun and easy-going choice among the rooftop restaurants Chicago has available.

Gene's rooftop is open seasonally during the warmer months, and it is a perfect destination for a sunny day, enjoying some beers and sausages in the very friendly, open picnic style atmosphere. And some nice views over the neighborhood rooftops.

Just remember to bring some cash, as Gene's rooftop does not accept credit cards.
