About

Esquire is our tribute to the World of Wine! Our iconic interior spaces, our wine tasting experiences, our exquisite food and wine pairings, and even our cocktails express our view that wine should be discovered, celebrated, and enjoyed together.

The Space

This three-story dazzler keeps guests in a state of excitement and anticipation as they arrive at street level and ascend up a grand escalator. Upon landing on the second floor, guests are treated to a stunning view of an all-glass 50-foot wine tower right in the center of everything, showing off the restaurant’s 1600 +bottles of wine in extraordinary style.

The Food

Our passion for flavor, presentation, and innovation come together as our chefs create dishes that pair perfectly with our exclusive wine flights to deliver outstanding culinary moments. Soon we will introduce a Happy Hour celebrating the world of wine and anyone who likes to enjoy it in a casual and fun setting. Plus, we will be introducing the Ultimate Brunch Menu unlike Chicago has seen – the weekend never saw us coming.

The Wine

The largest wine bottle collection in the city with over 1,600 selections of Cooper’s Hawk, Classic & Famous, and Cult wines from around the world. Awarded the “Best of Award of Excellence” by Wine Spectator in 2020 & 2021, our collection is accessible for discovery and celebration!

History of Esquire

Esquire by Cooper’s Hawk is located in the stunning Art-Deco inspired Esquire building that was first erected to house the Esquire Theater in 1937. For almost 70 years, the Esquire Theater was an iconic landmark in the Gold Coast until it was converted to a restaurant. In 2019 Cooper's took over the space, evolving it to the spectacular 3 story experience it is today.
