Despite Navy Pier Closings, Offshore Bar Will Remain Open

We wrote two weeks ago regarding the staggering news that Navy Pier would be closing down for the remainder of 2020 on September 8th. One establishment on the pier will remain open, however, as Offshore, the world’s largest rooftop deck and the hottest spot on Navy Pier will keep their doors open.

“We are excited to announce we will continue to operate as normal amid the Navy Pier closure on September 8,” said Stephen Stoll, COO of  Maverick Restaurants. “With safety for our patrons at the utmost importance, we hope to continue to welcome in locals looking for a fun way to socially distance while also enjoying all that Offshore has to offer, with events lined up throughout the month that has something for everyone.”

Offshore rooftop bar at Navy Pier will be open from noon until 9 PM on weekdays, 11 AM until 10:30PM on Saturday, and 11 AM until 9 PM on Sunday. You can make reservations on OpenTable and parties will be limited to six or fewer to ensure the safety and comfortability of patrons and staff. On top of that, the operating group of Offshore in Chicago will be scheduling special event evenings such as sunset paint and sips and morning fitness classes to give patrons something to look forward to. Already on the calendar for September:

Offshore at Navy Pier in Chicago is dedicated to all safety protocols for guests. Everyone is required to wear a mask upon entry and exit and tables will be spaced at least seven feet apart and indoor tables within eight feet of a window, so as you can see, they are going above and beyond to make sure everyone involved with keeping Offshore open is safe.
