EPIC Lounge

The lounge at EPIC is the perfect spot to grab a drink with friends and enjoy a casual meal. The 23 foot high ceilings and 40 foot long bar are a grand sight to behold. The warmth of the space make this a favorite spot for those getting off work or going out for fun in River North. A special lounge menu and happy hour food specials are sure to bring you back time and again.

The mixology program focuses on organic and seasonal drinks along with traditional favorites. On weekends after 10pm, the energy picks up as DJs add another dimension to EPIC’s ambience.
