We have rebuilt! The Chicago Firehouse Restaurant is now open in the South Loop. Join us for classic and inventive American steakhouse fare. Our historic building, originally designed as a firehouse for Engine Company 104, is a designated Chicago Landmark.
Renovations made to the restaurant reflect thoughtful attention to turn of the century design elements while maintaining the building’s beauty and heritage. Upon entering through the firehouse’s original doorway on 14th Street, guests will find a large bar area, hand-painted mural, 12 patterned tin ceiling, original Tiffany glazed brick, custom millwork and tufted banquettes. The now 15,000 square foot steakhouse offers a spacious solarium with floor to ceiling windows that flood the restaurant with natural light and a state-of-the-art kitchen visible from various vantage points. The first floor’s bar area, main dining room and solarium offer seating for 215 guests. The second floor, dedicated to private event space, can accommodate parties of up to 250 guests. This level’s renovation includes sun-filled spaces with walnut paneled walls, reclaimed wood floors and beautifully handcrafted doors. Two large parlor rooms (Palmer Parlor and Kimball Parlor) were aptly named for the first families of Chicago who resided on Prairie Avenue. The Mayor's Room is handsomely designed with a fireplace and 11-foot doors, perfect for meetings or small dinner parties. A stunning private veranda complete with outdoor fireplace and bar
