Welcome Home, Chicago

We are excited to join many other local Chicago businesses and institutions reopening for guests again. We’ve always been The People’s Pier, and it just hasn’t been the same here on the Pier without, well, people!

We also wouldn’t be The People’s Pier if we weren’t looking out for your safety. Rest assured, we’re taking that more seriously now more than ever. You can read more about all of our extra safety precautions, new procedures, Social Distance Ambassadors, and new methods of cleaning here.

With that in mind, read on to find out what’s in store for you over here on the lake.

Outdoor dining

Is there a better way to spend a warm afternoon than eating and drinking in the sun? 

Yes. Eating and drinking in the sun next to our beautiful lake.

And that’s just what you’ll find here at Navy Pier. All of our businesses with outdoor dining options are now open for you to enjoy, including Harry Caray's, Giordano's, Margaritaville and more.

Outdoor Fun

We’re blessed with some of the most majestic outdoor areas in Chicago. The beautiful view of our lake is accompanied by wonderful outdoor spaces to relax, take a stroll, or spend an afternoon in.

If you want to stretch your sea legs out on the lake, the lakefront cruises are open with new safety measures to ensure that your trip out on the water is as safe as can be.

The People's Pier Welcomes You

With our safety measures and new protocols in place, this all means one thing: we’re ready for your visit.

Come dine, relax, and take in the sunset on the Pier. Take a stroll through our parks or take a cruise on our lake. It's been a long year, now it’s time to stretch your legs and take a deep breath.

Let’s enjoy a little break together - you’ve earned it.
