columbus tap offers a quintessential
tap house experience, masterfully blending
sophisticated offerings with neighborhood charm. 

Columbus Tap is located inside the AAA Four-Diamond Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park and offers guests a modern gastropub experience in the heart of Chicago.

Columbus Tap's interior is designed by San-Francisco-based firm, Puccini Group, and reflects the hip sensibilities of the surrounding area while paying tribute to Chicago's rich and storied past. Large windows allow for an open and airy atmosphere with modern framework inspired by mid-19th century architectural elements.  Sofette lounge-style leather seating and a large communal table encourage a convivial and casual ambiance surrounded by distressed brick walls and modern saloon-style brass chandeliers.

Vibrant and inviting, the large central bar of cerused oak is complemented by custom ceramic floor tiling and a floor-to-ceiling wood beer keg display. Custom art is featured in the space including a branded wall graphic inspired by vintage, hand-painted advertisements.

Executive Sous Chef

Garant is a five-year veteran of the Fairmont brand and has conceptualized a menu focused around locality and seasonality, created to pair perfectly with the restaurant’s extensive beer selection. Originally from British Columbia, Garant discovered his passion for cooking in grade school and went on to graduate with honors from Vancouver Island University with a culinary degree. 

We hope to create an menu where both hotel guests and Chicagoans alike embrace
the restaurant as their own neighborhood gem.
— Atticus Garant, Chef


Drawing from Chicago’s rich beer history, Columbus Tap is proud to offer varieties from several Chicago and Midwestern breweries — featuring a selection of 16 drafts on tap, as well as a vast array of malts, yeasts, adjuncts and curiosities, hops, ciders and sours, and more. Come fill up your growler or try one of our unique flights.

We are also happy to partner with the Ronald McDonald House charities to donate the ‘pop top’ tabs from your
cans of beer.  Please consider leaving them with your server or our host at the end of your visit.  

*While we strive to keep our menus current, they are subject to change.
