Dress Code
Smart Casual
Select from a memorable Contemporary American menu featuring outstanding dishes in an environment that blends the classic understated elegance of The Lobby's décor with the ever-present live music.

Take a table by the soaring 20 ft high floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Terrace. Breakfast is a favourite with both early-rising Chicago residents and hotel guests alike, who swear by starting the day with one of the many breakfast options, while The Lobby's approachable, yet American contemporary inspired à la carte is ideal for power lunches and sophisticated dinners.

The Lobby is also where the celebrated Peninsula Afternoon Tea is served. On Friday and Saturday evenings, dessert lovers swoon over the Chocolate Bar, and come Sundays, a spectacular brunch is served from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Hailed among the best in Chicago, The Lobby certainly steps up to plate with all the sweet and savoury requisites.

Children's menus are available with a variety of offerings.
