Inspired by the fire pit council rings at Promontory Point, this Hyde Park destination restaurant & bar is designed around a brick hearth that reflects simple traditions in a modern context. Just as the restaurant pays tribute to the neighborhood, the private event venue honors Hyde Park’s musical legaciy. The Promontory is dedicated to celebrating the eras when spacious ballrooms and jumping jazz clubs made Chicago’s South Side the capital of American music.
