Happy Hours

The Chopping Block offers Happy Hours each week. These social events are a great opportunity to taste more of our food-friendly wines, enjoy a delicious appetizer and meet other food and wine lovers. 

Registered for a cooking class that evening?

Or attending a private cooking party that night?

Or just need a break on the way home from work?

Come in early for a sip and a snack!

You will have the option to buy wine by the glass at a discount before class, and we'll extend a 10% discount to any wine purchased that evening in class. More than that, you'll have a chance to meet the people you'll be taking class with and to be a part of The Chopping Block's food and wine loving community.

Our Lincoln Square Happy Hour is offered every Thursday from 5:45pm-6:45pm. Our Merchandise Mart Happy Hour is offered on select Tuesdays from 4:45pm-5:45pm. Be sure to check our class calendars for availability, and sign up for an upcoming Happy Hour to check out the new format.

Our Happy Hour is 5-star on Yelp


"For just $10/person, you get two wine tastings with a cheese/charcuterie platter. It's a nice way to relax and unwind after a stressful day at work. The Chopping Block has a comfortable atmosphere and happy hour is a great way to mingle with other wine lovers. You also get 10% off any wine bottles purchased that evening. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and engaging in conversations with mature adults." ~Maronda H. from Chicago
