Howells and Hood: Massive new restaurant / bar opens in Tribune Tower

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

On tonight’s WGN News at Five, I’m taking you inside Howells and Hood – the new 17,000 square foot restaurant/bar concept in Tribune Tower. As you may have heard, the team over at Bottleneck Management (Sweetwater, South Branch, Old Town Pour House) spent $10 million building out the space that used to be home to WGN Radio. The Showcase Studio is still there, but all of the other WGN studios and offices are up on the seventh floor now.

Howells and Hood has enough space to seat about 700 people, both in their multiple dining rooms and outdoor patio. Through a partnership with the Tribune Company, Howells will also offer catering on the Tower’s 25th floor balcony, which is available to rent for private events.

My video tour will be featured here after it airs. Here is more information, including a link to a full menu with pricing…

Howells and Hood | 435 N. Michigan Ave in Tribune Tower, entrance at Pioneer Court | (312) 262-5310 | Sun-Wed 11am-12am, Thurs-Fri 11am-2am, Sat 11am-3am |
