About Raised, An Urban Rooftop Bar
Following much anticipation and careful planning by a creative and culinary team, Raised opened to critical acclaim in May 2016. Under the direction of Executive Chef Daniel Perez, the regular menu at Raised features American bar food with a twist, highlighting sharable plates – ideal for mixing and mingling while soaking up the summer. Chef Perez focuses on all things local, sourcing his menu ingredients within 200 miles of Raised. The beverage program at Raised is curated by William Nykaza and features an array of wines on tap, an extensive offering of local craft beers on draft and by the bottle, and specialty cocktails served by the glass or in a shareable decanter. The creative libations with seasonal, fresh ingredients encourage guests to sample and share.
Raised was designed by The Gettys Group, fusing an industrial aesthetic with eclectic style and raw finishes. A glass wall lends to a stunning view of the skyline and Chicago River, while the outdoor area features fresh flowers, fire pits, cabanas, couches and an outdoor bar with a decidedly urban feel.
