Chicago may be 800 miles west of the Atlantic, but when you step into Hampton Social every care in the world will melt away – you will be transported on vacation to the beaches of Montauk where a coastal escape and journey await.

The Hampton Social is owned by the Parker Restaurant Group which also owns Bassment and Mahalo. The interiors are straight out of a luxury Cape Cod estate – white trims, and nautical props complete the ambiance.

During our visit, my friend and I got lost in conversation and stayed much longer than we had planned. This is the type of charming atmosphere that Parker created. You feel right at home in the cozy environment! When you visit, you must order the Pesto Pizza and Chicken & Waffles. You will be met with a unique tastes on classics.

Live acoustic performances take place on a stage throughout the week (schedule on their site). My friend commented how the performances take place at the “perfect volume” – not too overbearing!

With the mantra “Rosé all day” proudly displayed in the center of the bar, many of our readers will feel right at home. Be on the lookout for a new location opening in the Burr Ridge neighborhood this fall.
