An Elevated Cocktail Bar Rooted in the Classics

Located in Kimpton The Gray ● (312) 604-9909

A Chicago Loop Cocktail Bar

On the second floor of The Kimpton Gray Hotel, Vol. 39 raises a glass to the timeless elegance of mid-century Chicago, while introducing a sense of contemporary inventiveness to its luxe cocktail bar atmosphere. From afternoon breaks to nightcaps, this upscale Loop favorite offers up a selection of bespoke cocktails with a nod to the classics, like seven variations on the signature Old Fashioned and a six-martini flight. If you thirst for the new, concoctions like the Spanish Armada and the Shinebox invite you to discover a fresh (and nuanced) favorite. An extensive collection of fine wines and spirits as well as a tempting menu of small plates, charcuterie and artisanal cheeses complement the impeccable cocktail list. And, for anyone with a taste for the finest things, silver-cart champagne & caviar table service is available.

Vol. 39 Private Events

Vol. 39 sets the scene for intimate private events that require a touch of timeless luxury. We offer semi-private space for small groups, or, opt for a full buy-out for a larger high-end celebration of up to 65 guests.

The Classics

The atmosphere at Vol. 39, from the handsome design of the space to the impeccably crafted cocktails with hand-cut orbs of ice and house-made bitters, is rooted in mid-century elegance. Modern updates to classic drinks, like The Tuxedo or an Old Fashioned made with mezcal, elevate them to something that’s both familiar and refreshingly new.
