It's been a long road for Mercadito Hospitality Group's Tippling Hall, but after two years and a whole lot of anticipation, River North's hottest new restaurant-bar combo is finally open. Located in the former Hop Haus space at 646 N. Franklin, those behind the concept wanted to throw a little bit of everything into the restaurant, combining great food and drinks with a comfortable yet edgy feel. Along with that, Tippling Hall is open for late-lunch all the way through late-night service - catering to just about anyone and everyone who lives, works, or breathes in downtown Chicago's River North neighborhood.
As far as the menu goes, both the drinks and the food at Tippling Hall are globally-inspired. The cocktails all have unique and fun names, examples being "Fiery Balls" or "One Sour Samurai," and if you're in the mood for something good to eat, you'll have plenty of options to choose from, which range from seafood to fried chicken. In addition, there's also a pretty convenient sharing menu that's perfect for both large and small groups.
Tippling Hall is open from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. daily, but stays open until 5 a.m. on Saturdays. As of now, other Mercadito Hospitality restaurants in Chicago include Double A, Mercadito Fish, Mercadito Counter, and Mercadito.
