Escape to the Beach

Patio at Shore Club

Shore Club opens on Chicago's North Avenue Beach next month and promises to be the new 'it' place.

Leaving behind the hustle and bustle of Chicago will be a lot easier come August when Shore Club, a new multi-million-dollar seasonal restaurant, bar and hangout opens on North Avenue Beach. With floor to ceiling windows and sweeping panoramic views of Lake Michigan, Shore Club is expected to induce a vacation-like mindset.

Co-founders Robbie Schloss, Lisa Jaroscak, Nick Thayer and Bill La Macchia Jr. said the concept of Shore Club began with their desire to create an elevated hospitality experience on North Avenue Beach. “We are excited to be able to offer a new dining option, one that we think will become the new ‘it’ place for those looking to relax and enjoy on the beautiful Chicago beaches,” Schloss added.

Shore Club will consist of three unique spaces to attract guests looking for a high-end dining experience to those who want a more casual environment. Executive Chef Elizabeth Tokarczyk, in partnership with Inspired Catering, created Shore Club’s Mediterranean-inspired food menu, which will focus on seafood dishes.

The Patio at Shore Club will feature lunch and dinner service on a first-come first-serve basis and be accessible to beachgoers and those exercising on the Lakeshore Trails who want stop in for a quick bite. The open-air patio is described to be an informal and comfortable

atmosphere that will feature a rotating schedule of specialty workshops, cooking classes and local art exhibitions.

The Restaurant at Shore Club will offer an elevated food menu inspired by Mediterranean cuisine and beaches around the world. Guests will be seated in a covered, open-air environment with large glass windows. To really make Chicagoans feel like they are miles away from the city on a coastal beach, staff members will dress the part in beach-inspired crisp whites with splashes of teal.

Shore Club Brunch will also be offered every Sunday. Get your tickets here. Although an opening date has not yet been announced, tickets for brunch on Aug. 6 are on sale now.

For a semi-private VIP experience, The Oasis at Shore Club will offer guests the opportunity to relax and enjoy beach views from a sunbed, daybed or cabana. The Oasis offers tableside service and the menus include some of the world’s finest champagnes or signature Club cocktails, as well as an array of shared plates and large format options from the menu.

Shore Club will be celebrating the 59th annual Chicago Air & Water Show Aug. 18-20 and you can grab a beachside seat here. Visit to view all upcoming events.
