A word from LuxBar
Inspired by the work of Adolf Loos whose "American Bar" was designed & built in early twentieth century Vienna. The bar captured an elegance in simplicity; a style that greatly influenced the work of Frank Lloyd Wright & other American architects in the "prairie school". Stone, glass, brass & wood bathed in natural light, presence in the neighborhood is welcomed & profound.
LUXBAR as a neighborhood saloon is designed to convey that same simple elegance. The food is feel-good fresh, natural & easily understood. Artisanal in style, the menu reflects what the partnership views as an accessible cornucopia of what you might eat on just any occasion. The specialty cocktails are from natural, fresh ingredients: simple elegance.
The staff at LUXBAR is trained in the customer care philosophy that has made Gibson’s Steakhouse & Hugo's Frog Bar famous for legendary service.
Reservation requests for patio seating are not accepted. Patio seating is first come, first serve.

  • "I was very lucky to be able to get in to the restaurant as it is almost always crowded. They have a party room upstairs and a very nice dining area. I had whitefish and my husband has salmon, both of which were excellent. We have been there several times, including opening night, and will also be dining there again. The waiter was extremely nice and brought the food and drinks quickly."

  • "We arrived in Chicago late and just wanted a bite to eat. Turned out the food was very good and the outdoor seating was lively. We enjoyed both the atmosphere and the food more than we expected. A great first experience in this city in the heart of all the action."

  • "Luxbar is great for a light meal -wonderful choices that don't require an entire full course meal. A fun plcae, ezpecially if you can get a table outside."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "I saw a picture of the lobster and filet mignon sliders and had to try them! Very good but needs more flavor. I put some truffle aioli from the fries we ordered on the sliders and they tasted way better!"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Great place song the area and nice outdoor setup. We had a party of 6 so were unable to sit outside though. The food was great, big portions so may want to skip the appetizers. The fried chicken, skirt steak and sliders are all great to try. We were there on a Saturday, so the noise level inside can be on the loud side."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Although we had a reservation, we were not able to sit at the table we wanted. The food & service was great. Only down side, the noise level was a little bit high for my taste"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Excellent Service . The food is not sophisticated but fresh and tasty. The outdoor dining is fantastic for people watching"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Lux Bar is a hip, vibrant restaurant-bar that also has a throwback element to it. The food is varied, the quality is very good to excellent, and the service tops. It's a fun area and seating in or out works!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Very well done, Luxbar. Don't miss the spicy, sweet calamari!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Our waitress, Stephanie, was great! We love our neighborhood gem."

  • "Consistently good food. Been coming here for many years. Best fried chicken and truffle fries!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We say we are going to try new places, but LuxBar makes it easy to forget what we said... The greeting by the hostesses was genuinely friendly, really appreciate that. The seasonal summer cocktail I tried was refreshing and better than I anticipated. Our waiter was friendly and super attentive to my companion's outrageous thirst for refills, big deal in my book. I know it's casual comfort food, but I wish the dinner menu offered a bit more variety. Or maybe that's a sign I dine here too often; I still miss the Asian tuna salad the took off the menu. Oddly, the restaurant seemed to visibly go from not too busy to absolutely slammed around 8pm on the Friday we were there. Just mentioning so you can plan according to your table's dynamics."

  • "although they were busy, they did not rush us as we enjoyed our wine while sitting outside. great people watching. Order the crab cake-enough to split and such good quality crab."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We love the menu and the warm and friendly feeling that everyone receives here. It's truly a gem. The BEST Turkey Club anywhere and the truffle fries are to DIE FOR! IF you haven't been here.....You Gotta GO!"

  • "Great outdoor spot. Especially for watching people. Food is good. Mostly an upscale bar menu. Nothing over the top great!"

  • "I usually deal with gibsons group restaurants very well and this time I was very unsatisfied. Beings associated with gibsons I expect the meat to be at least good. I knew that for 25$ the prime rib on Saturday night would not be Amazing but for one, my boyfriend and I both wanted it and they only had one left. That ruined his evening because being a gentleman he gave it to me. I ended up giving it to him, though, because he's less experienced in fine dining and didn't realize how bad it was. It was chewy and stringy. Disappointed. The yellowfin tuna app I usually order is amazing but this time was warm and subpar and without the cold Asian noodles. Experience was 2.5 stars."

  • "Visiting Chicago on my own and booked a table for one early evening Saturday. Got the worst table right behind the backs of the headwaiter or waiters as they a couple of people standing there. Order Lake Superior whitefish which was way to salty and the green beans not being cocked or grilled at all. No bread offered. The wine was good although I had to ask for a second glass as there was a fly in the first one, yes true. The waiter was very nice an quickly got my a new glass. I felt like they wanted me out of the place as soon as possible. I was tired and jetlagged from the flight from Europe and wasn't planning to stay very long at the restaurant, but at least I expected a nice meal. Very disappointed."

  • "I'd been to LuxBar twice before for lunch and enjoyed it very much. Dinner, however, was another story. The restaurant was incredibly loud, almost like a sports bar. The food was OK, but leaned to the bland side, especially the sides. Service was fine, but nothing special."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We have been here several times and the service and food are really good! The noise level is typically energetic which is fine, but this past time it was super loud, making it difficult to hear ourselves. Would still go again though as we love the location, food and service."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Luxbar was good the service was excellent and I enjoyed my experience. I do think they should have there on valet. I will return to try other menu options I want to try the brunch."

  • "Luxbar is always a sure fire hit, no matter what time of day or evening you get there......."

  • "5 star service at 3 star prices. Great food and a great value with a neighborhood vibe."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "As a neighborhood local- I cannot say enough good things about how awesome it is to walk in and have the staff go out of their way to say hello. This is our go to spot for me and my friends in the neighborhood for a casual night out. the bar staff at Lux is awesome"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This place was fine - decent food, fine service, nice urban atmosphere, and jam packed on a Friday night. But be warned: this place is really loud, and you'll be shouting at the person across the table from you if you're in the main dining room. We left for desert so that we could find someplace where it was easier to talk. Other than that it was fine, and not outrageously expensive either."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I go to LuxBar all the time. The food is excellent and consistent. Staff is super friendly. Sitting outside on a sunny day cant be beat. The best that Gold Coast has to offer."

  • "Told OpenTable that we did not honour our reservation when we abolutely did. They even had our credit card bill as proof."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "There are enough good places in Chicago why settle for just ok. Service was a little slow and the food wasn't anything special. It was good but not great. I wouldn't choose Luxbar but I wouldn't say no if friends picked it."

  • "We are never disappointed and always have geat food and a wonderful time at Lux!"

  • "The outside dining area was nice but the inside was not so nice. It smelled of stale beer and looked pretty run down. The drinks/food were overpriced for what was offered. We left and ended up going next door to the Tavern on the Rush, which was awesome. Great atmosphere, food and drinks. Next time we will be headed directly to the Tavern on the Rush."
