Merchandise Mart Info & Parking


Merchandise Mart Building

Please note that the Merchandise Mart building maintains different hours than The Chopping Block. Therefore, it will sometimes be necessary for our guests to enter the building at a different location other than the Kinzie/Wells entrance which is closest to our store. 

  • If the doors at Kinzie/Wells are locked, please access the building through the River Drive entrance, which is the main entrance to the building. 
  • If your class is on a Sunday, please note you will need to enter the Merchandise Mart building at the main entrance along the Chicago River. Once you enter the building, turn right and walk to the end of the hall then turn left, go past Starbucks and you will see The Chopping Block's entrance on the left after Potbelly and before the stairs.
