Beatnik On The River – Restaurant in Chicago, IL | The Vendry

At the Loop location, the globetrotting dishes and cocktails, and boho-chic interior are further enhanced with breathtaking views of Wacker Drive, Merchandise Mart and the Chicago River. In July 2018, BOTR debuted its 80-seat riverfront patio filled with Indonesian daybeds, Moroccan lanterns and lush greenery. A year later, the interior area was unveiled transforming the previous sign store into an otherworldly space by means of the 1913 jewelry shop installed inside it.

Mirroring the restaurant’s design aesthetic, Executive Chef Marcos Campos’ cuisine takes a global approach, melding ingredients from around the world. Bold flavors, original combinations and creative presentations are hallmarks of Campos’ culinary style. Cocktails are inventive and colorful, often finding inspiration in ingredients from the kitchen, creating a harmonious relationship between what’s being served on the plates and in the glasses.

Beatnik On The River offers a wide variety of settings for both private and semi-private events, including the lush Riverfront Terrace, the intimate Jewelry Store and cozy indoor River Mezzanine, which offers the same spectacular rivers views as the outdoor space downstairs.
