Restaurant Tabs


At this haute Chicago hangout, everything is casual - except for the care and craftsmanship poured into every cocktail.  A sophisticated yet cozy, 34-seat neighborhood boite, Bernard's Bar features a simple menu of both classic and modern cocktails; artisanal wines and spirits; craft beers, and seasonal beverages, all paired with a signature light fare menu. Reminiscent of a plush, private club in shades of rich brown with suede covered walls, velvet banquettes and charcoal drawings by local artist, Francine Turk, the experience is refined and attentive yet comfortable and relaxed.

The perfect place to meet business associates for a uniquely crafted cocktail or for an intimate after-dinner drink with your partner, Bernard's is a jewel, tucked away on the second floor of the Waldorf Astoria Chicago Hotel.
