Our goal is simple, we're a Chicago-based hospitality group that strives to create authentic drinking & entertainment establishments that are memorable and focus on quality.
Marked by a high level of collaboration with an array of talented hospitality professionals, each concept is unique. In 2013, after 10 years of "one-off" projects, the partners formed Footman Hospitality. This was the natural evolution of the company, which now manage, brand, and have expanded its unique hospitality ventures under one cohesive operation and vision.
In the early 19th century, a footman was no ordinary man. Charged with running the most precious and precarious tasks in a household, a footman’s purpose was to apply relentless attention to detail to household affairs that often escaped other staff. The footman undertook every task, from greeting guests to serving dinners, with a refined sense of style and a gracious demeanor.
