Chicago whiskey fans, this is a must visit!

Are you wanting some Pappy Van Winkle in Chicago? Steadfast is coming to The Loop by the end of June with master chefs Chris Davies & Chris Texeira operating. Davies currently runs the kitchen at Homestead on The Roof which is anotehr Fifty/50 property.

Whiskey fans will be treated with Manhattans made with either Jim Beam from 1977 or Pappy Van Winkle 10-year bourbon. One of the highlights of Steadfast is its extensive spirits program focused on brown spirits, particularly antique and hard-to-find whiskeys. Among the twenty bottles on hand, all bottled between the 1930s and the 1970s, is an offering from Stitzel-Weller, known by bourbon connoisseurs as the first distillery owned and operated by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle himself. “We’re looking not just for different distillers, but different time periods,” says Schiller, who has been hitting up auctions with Sas to find interesting bottles. The prices are not set in stone at the moment and instead will be determined by demand.

Steadfast will be located in the new Kimpton Gray hotel located at 39 S. LaSalle St. Chicago, IL 60603
