Lakeshore East Chicago Happy Hour.
Due to Covid many Happy Hours were canceled. Now many are coming back. I’ll mark all the ones that have returned as Confirmed. Thanks! Cheers!
I love Happy Hour
Dining out can be expensive. A great way to get a cheap meal and adult beverage(s) is to go to Happy Hour. Most restaurants these days offer one otherwise people will just go elsewhere. Thankfully most Happy Hour menus are on websites now. They are usually listed under menus, events or specials on websites.
All happy hours are in the bar only. All prices are valid at the time of this post and can change without notice. Always check the website and/or call to confirm that happy hour deals are still available before heading over. Prices don’t include tax and tip. Cheers!

Where is LakeShore East
Lakeshore East Chicago Happy Hour. Looking for good quality, reasonably priced happy hour options in the Lakeshore East area? Looking for the Lakeshore East area? What is it? Where is it? It’s a 28 acre mixed use development started in 2003 and located within the area officially known as the New East Side. The New East Side is bounded by the Chicago River on the north, Grant Park and Millennium Park on the south. Michigan Avenue on the west and the Lake on the east.
For those of you somewhat familiar with the Loop the Lakeshore East development was previously a nine-hole golf course and before that an abandoned rail yard. Several condo and apartment buildings built between 1963 and 1991 preceded the Lakeshore East development.
Now it’s a growing neighborhood with high-rise condos, apartments, and hotels as well as low-rise townhouses and retail. All of this surrounds a lovely park located right in the middle of the development. The street encircling the park inexplicably has four different names making it difficult sometimes to find things if you’re not familiar with the area. 2017: The Riverwalk can only be accessed through the Lakefront Trail on the east side of the park.
