Brought to life by Parker Hospitality, the Chicago-based brand known for seamlessly merging innovative dining concepts with engaging social experiences, The Hampton Social – Skokie (4999 Old Orchard Center C29) adds a rooftop dining and bar space to the existing coastal-inspired retreat, just in time for the summer outdoor-dining season.
The Hampton Social’s rooftop, known as The Hampton Rooftop, features 7,500 square feet and can accommodate 172 seated guests, making it also an ideal location for private and semi-private events. While each area of the restaurant evokes the feeling of dining seaside, the rooftop adds the additional benefit of letting the sun shine on diners as they enjoy the open-air concept. Those who prefer the shade can make their way to the partially-covered 20-seat bar with a pergola, topped with marquee lighting spelling out “Hampton Rooftop.” The space also features one of the brand’s signature “Rosé All Day” neon signs hung on a wall of ivy, adding to the feeling of escape.
Guests can take an elevator or staircase to the second floor, where they can look forward to a condensed menu of the brand’s dishes like the Manhattan- or Maine-style Lobster Rolls and shareable items including Baja Fish Tacos and the Shelter Island Chicken Sandwich. Guests can also enjoy cocktail creations like the I Like it a Yacht (vodka, aperol, lavender, lemon) and Hampton Water rosé. The rooftop menu will feature a new “order at the table” system, which allows guests to pilot their own dining experiences.
“The summer season in Chicago is synonymous with outdoor dining, so we are thrilled to bring our ‘rose all day’ vibe to our North Shore location,” says Parker Hospitality Founder and CEO Brad Parker in a statement. “The Hampton Rooftop is an exciting addition to our Skokie location where guests can gather to soak up the sun in a coastal setting that is a trademark of The Hampton Social experience.”
The Hampton Rooftop is located at 4999 Old Orchard Center C29, around the corner entrance to the restaurant itself, and will be open for dinner Wednesday through Sunday, with brunch service launching this summer.
