Rebar, the sophisticated lounge at Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago, has announced its reopening on Friday, August 30. Amplifying the luxurious experience for which it has been lauded since 2008, the destination – which features show-stopping views of famed Chicago landmarks – reveals a glamorous reimagined design, expanded menu and a new tasting room experience.

“We are thrilled to reintroduce Rebar to our residents and guests,” said Gabriel Constantin, General Manger, Trump Chicago Hotel. “The location, views and menu offerings are truly distinctive to our property, and the beautiful new look matches the vibrant energy that our guests bring to the experience. The space, coupled with our team’s versatility and unparalleled hospitality, lends itself to all occasions in a fresh, exciting new way.”

Vintage Inspired Accents Backed by an Unequivocally Modern Ethos

Reminiscent of lounges from Hollywood’s golden age while maintaining an impeccably modern feel, guests will enter through a lively room accented by touches creamy white, slate grey and dark blue. Carefully curated with a conscience, the design team used ethically sourced bar stools and chairs from ITALSED, a company that prides itself on its ongoing commitment to using sustainable raw materials. This means that the bar stools and chairs were made with timber sourced from FSC accredited forests, not wood that has been illegally traded, is in violation of human rights in forestry relations, or involved with destruction of high conservation values in forestry operations.

While the lounge is punctuated with Art Deco-inspired elements like geometric wall sconces, glittering mirrors, and pin-tucked seating, it is the show-stopping views of the Chicago River that provide the ultimate backdrop. Locals and travelers alike can now sip innovative cocktails in style while appreciating the bustling action of the city by day – and its shimmering lights by night.

Dine, Share + Toast to the Good Life

A destination for those who appreciate sophisticated social mix, Rebar presents a range of music, people and events along with a modern approach to dining. An expanded food menu – inspired by the vibrant flavors of Asia – introduces an even wider array of options in the new space and lend beautifully to sharing.

An extensive wine, beer and small-batch spirits list – thoughtfully curated to spotlight leading trends – along with an impressive craft cocktail program, will appeal to those seeking comfort in familiarly or those craving an adventure. Also, newly introduced is an exclusive tasting room, an intimate lounge-within-the-lounge. The private nook, available for groups up to 10, brings experiential flair to Rebar where guests can reserve a personally guided tour of the world’s rarest fine wine and spirits as they are paired with custom menu selections.

During the day, Rebar’s bright, airy space functions as an ideal destination for business meetings, a gathering point for in-house event attendees. By night, the atmosphere exudes a spirited vibe as colleagues convene after work, and even more so as friends and couples congregate for a night of revelry. On Saturday nights, the bar pulses with contagious energy at Rebar ReMixed, which features a DJ, live entertainment, dancing and more.
