The Berkshire Room is a craft cocktail lounge from beverage director Benjamin Schiller located directly inside the ACME Hotel Company lobby at 15 East Ohio Street in River North.
The Berkshire Room's name comes from The Berkshire Hotel which once occupied the original hotel space where ACME now sits from the 1920s thru the 1950s.
Schiller's innovative program features specialty cocktails; barrel-finished cocktails; and "dealer's choice" cocktails where the guests pick the spirit, flavor profile and glassware and our talented bartenders craft unique one-of-a-kind cocktails on the fly.
Rounding out Schiller's beverage program is a roubust list of 400+ spirits, an esoteric wine and champagne selection by the bottle and glass, 20 international craft beers, and six "blue collar lagers" for just $4 each.
Design-wise, The Berkshire Room marries the aesthetic of an old-world cocktail lounge with contemporary, urban touches. Enjoy The Berkshire Room's whiskey crate walls, a bar front made from overlapping leather belts, plush seating, and the original and rare terrazzo composite flooring from The Berkshire Hotel that was uncovered during demolition of the space. The Berkshire Room seats approximately 70.
Acme Hotel's cocktail lounge supplies specialty drinks & New American bar snacks in a snazzy space.
