Challenge

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant is a Chicago-based dining getaway that emphasizes sophisticated food paired with exceptional wines. The design includes four distinct components: an upscale casual dining restaurant, full-service bar, private dining room, and Napa-style tasting room featuring their exclusive wine collection and retail accessories. Each Cooper’s Hawk location is distinctive in layout and décor, but carries the same warmth and elegance. Cooper’s Hawk was looking to work with an integrated design/build firm with broad geographic reach who could help them expand beyond the Illinois market. They hired WD Partners to assist with their expansion.
