In addition to cocktails, guests can order food on Fridays and Saturdays. The popup is open upon prior reservation, with no reservation required.
During the pop-up, the Grand Hall is decorated with scenes from the Jazz Age for photo opportunities, and Union Station’s award-winning light shows are played on the Grand Hall ceiling every hour.
