Homestead on The Roof

An Urban Rooftop Garden Oasis in Chicago

1924 W. Chicago Ave.
Chicago, IL 60622


Homestead on The Roof has become a favored Chicago destination for hosting wedding rehearsals and ceremonies. For your special day, you will find the private indoor & outdoor space perfect for an elegant time. Nestled in between two natural brick buildings, our 100-seat patio features hanging and planted gardens where you’ll get to see the origins of many of the ingredients used in your dishes. You’ll also have access to our 80-seat interior, complemented by natural birch wallpaper and rustic handcrafted tables and intricate terrariums.

With lush overflowing gardens, warm Edison string lights, a brick fireplace, and a warm summer breeze, it is no wonder Homestead on the Roof was named a top 100 restaurant for outside dining in the US by Open Table. Wood tables were crafted by Waldon Bros wood works and our chef team works daily to make sure we are harvesting fresh produce and herbs from the garden in order to serve you the highest quality possible.

The interior of Homestead is open year-round for private dinners and happy hour and it is the perfect spot to enjoy a candlelit dinner when the weather doesn’t permit outdoor seating. With a fully stocked bar and easy access to the outdoor patio, the interior of Homestead is a versatile and warm space, perfect for cocktail hour.
