about us


A diamond in the rough … er, north, The Redhead Piano Bar is a favorite with locals, tourists and anyone from the ages of 21 – 81.  More and more, fans of a cocktail and group sing-a-long’s are discovering this local landmark.

A Chicago Treasure

Tucked into a basement-level space off bustling Ontario Street, The Redhead feels like a walk down memory lane with the dimly lit room, walls lined with sheet music and famous movie stars of yesteryear and a diverse crowd enjoying cocktails.

During busy times, a crowd gathers to stand and even dance a little next to the piano. A great seat, if you can get it, is around the rectangular bar that dominates the room, or at the intimate tables for two. The rear of the bar offers tables where groups who are more interested in conversation than a sing-along can sit.

The Ambiance for a Memorable Evening Out

The Redhead Piano Bar gives guests a true old Chicago experience. Our lively piano music, delicious cocktails, and cozy lounge venue are just the beginning of your night out. We are incredibly proud to offer our outdoor covered smoking area, an extension of our venue. Enjoy a cigar (that you brought along or that you picked up from our in-house humidor) at any time outside. Don’t let our chilly winter weather deter you, either. Our smoking area is heated, cozy, and ready for you.

If you are planning for a special anniversary or if you want to celebrate something special, join us at the Redhead Piano Bar. You’ll have a night to remember and find yourself planning a return trip sooner than later. Come on over and paint the town red with us.
