Preshow cocktails at Balena
Balena offers hand-made Italian food and delicious cocktails in a prime location right next to the Royal George and the Steppenwolf theatres. Recently voted one of the top 21 Italian restaurants in the US by Thrillist, all of Balena’s pasta is made in-house and their cocktails are ranked by levels of bitterness. The Balena space has a rustic feel with a leather topped bar, wooden floors and brick walls and they're perfectly situated to serve theatre goers dinner and cocktails before their shows. They’re open 7 days a week for dinner.
