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.

Diner Reviews
  • "Love everything about Luxbar. Fun, energetic environment, great service and everyone in our group of 9 had nothing but great things to say about their meal. Some of the items our crew raved about included the always delicious crab cake, the flat iron steak, fried chicken and perch plate....simple things done perfectly. Calvin's margaritas were excellent!"

  • "Food is always good and very well priced. Lots of good choices. Prefer eating outside when weather warms up as it is not as noisy and more fun with good people watching. They have great fried chicken but I try to be good and have the salmon. They changed the vegetable accompaniment for the salmon which I don't like as much."

  • "We were seated near the host stand (UGH) and a family of four waited to be seated with their backs literally touching our table. Standing in front of our table, they also blocked the television so we couldn't watch the basketball game. The table behind us was so close that there wasn't even room for the server to get between us. The server had to pass my drinks/plates down the table to get them to me. Food was great. In addition, the bus boys kept trying to take out plates from us before we were finished (my pet peeve) and the server brought our check to us when we had planned to order more drinks. OH well...we ended up leaving. I had the Gourmet Burger cooked medium rare with fries and a grapefruit cocktail. I really enjoyed the food."

  • "Went to LuxBar with some friends from out of town on 3/29. Though the restaurant and bar were both incredibly busy, we didn't wait long for our reservation and service was amazing. We never felt rushed, the food came out at good pace, and recommendations were on point. Even though there are a TON of choices for places to go in the city, we would come back in a heartbeat."

  • "I took me daughter and a group of friends here for a birthday dinner. LuxBar gave them the dinner in the city they wanted with menu they would actually eat. We had a reservation at 7 and were seated at 7 even with a crowd of people waiting for tables. great food and great service!"

  • "Delivered first totally disappointing experience! Service was annoying - too fast, hovering over us to prevent a few extra minutes to visit. (Total time at the table was less than 1 1/2 hours. Suspect treatment would have been better if guests were not two women.) P.S. If with another female, I always over tip! Food came cold; regularly-listed fried chicken had tasteless new coating and was presented on a lunch plate so pieces we're falling onto the table."

  • "We've been going to Lux Bar for years. Our server was very sweet and helpful. Unfortunately the food quality wasn't up to par. Small serving of tuna tartare invisible underneath a mess of chip and over cooked be dry fried chicken. I would give it one more chance but maybe do lunch rather than dinner."

  • "The lux bar is a real nice restaurant and the food was! But I did not like the seating arrangement the tables were to closes together and you had to squeeze pass people to get too your table."

  • "Just wanted to thank Luxbar for a great night on Friday! When we got in a little late for our reservation, even on a crowded night they went above and beyond to make sure we got a table in a timely manner. The bagpipes and irish festivity added to the great food and ambience. Well done!"

  • "Came for a work lunch. Not crowded at all. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was good. Would like to try it again during the dinner timeframe."

  • "it was my friends going away party (she decided to move to Barcelona...poor her! :)) Anyway, our waiter and Nick were amazing! we love our Moscow mules! I always enjoy my experience here. the staff was engaged, respectful and served our needs to its fullest. we all had mixed emotions about our friend leaving us but Luxbar added Chicago love and a smile on my friends face. Way to represent and make our brunch memorable. xoxo :)"

  • "Out of the four restaurants we dined at, this one had the best/friendliest service. Our waitress was very attentive. The meal was very tasty. Very nice experience."

  • "I was here yesterday with a friend for lunch. We both ordered the tomato soup which was a delicious and substantial lunch. My complaint was with the server. He showed no interest in us, never told us his name and frankly turned his back on Us when my friend had a hard time deciding. It seems that seniors are not worth the bother. The manager checked with other tables to see if things were good, but never even gave us a second glance. Wish I had not given the server any gratuity. I will go back, but will make sure I get a different server."

    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Food was great, had the pretzels appetizers and the veggie burger for dinner; very good veggie burger; better than most that we've had. The best, however, was the apple-pie flavored bourbon. It was a winter special drink, but if you get a chance, you have to try it."

  • "We can always count on Lux Bar for great food and service. It has never disappointed us in the many times we have eaten there. I would definitely recommend it for any occasion."

    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "We have eaten at Lux Bar several times and the food has always been exceptional. The service is great and all waiters have been very attentive. If something you like is not on the menu, they will always make it available - all you have to do is ask. We've never had a bad meal or experience there."

  • "I enjoyed going here for brunch. Service was good and the food was excellent- but it is brunch :-) I highly recommend it to anybody in the hood not looking for pancakes or anything super fancy."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "As always, love the crab cakes and everything else we have tried here - this time we ordered turkey club and turkey sandwich - neither were remarkable. I had the turkey sandwich and the fries saved it. I would not order that again, but that won't stop me from trying something else next."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We knew from reviews that the noise level is high (which it was) and we were fine although it is difficult to have a conversation. Our server was very good and so was the calamari but we were really looking forward to the sliders. We thought they'd be the same as Gibson's (which we love) and they were not good at all...tough and no flavor. Maybe we just hit a bad night but we are unlikely to return due to so many excellent options when we are in Chicago."

  • "Service a little slow: waitress never introduced herself."

  • "We recently had lunch at the LuxBar and it has now become a "new" favorite! Loved the ambience, the food was excellent, our server was helpful and friendly! It wasn't too busy when were there for lunch at about 1 PM...not sure if it was the day of the week or our timing, but we were really able to relax and enjoy it. Would highly recommend this place for the food, service and charm!"

  • "If you're looking for a late night meal Luxbar is the spot. Went there on a Sunday night, the kitchen was open until 1:00AM and the bar until 2:00. I used to work in the restaurant industry the last thing I like doing is going to a restaurant right before they close but when we arrived at midnight everyone was happy to see us. Had a nice booth in a corner, drinks and food were delicious. We had dinner which I thought was Fantastic, that is until dessert came. OH WOW the dessert is just to DIE for, HUGE portions so only order one hersheys pie for your group to share. Please don't miss out on the Hershey pie. That is all"

  • "We love Lux Bar and it's always great food but it's 50/50 service will be slow and there kitchen seems to be always backed up. The Mont Carlo Chicken Club is A+ when it finally arrives,"
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "We love coming here for breakfast/brunch! We were here with two other couples and we had a wonderful brunch. We like to order a variety of things to share. We especially love the French Toast, it's outstanding, as are the omelets. We also enjoy the bloody mary's. No matter what you order, you will not be disappointed. We usually start with some apple fritters and guac and chips. It sounds a little odd for brunch, but coupled with a bloody mary or a mimosa, and it really hits the spot. The staff is great, too! Very friendly and helpful. I'm looking forward to coming back very soon!!"

  • "My sister and I needed something to do on NYE. We didn't want to do the overpriced club scene, but yet we still wanted to be out and about. By the grace of Opentable I found us a reservation at LuxBar for 11:15pm on NYE. This was perfect! We got there a little before our reservation and we had a chance to take everything in. At 11:15pm on the dot we received a text saying that our table was ready! We ordered drinks and ordered some finger food. Around 11:40pm waiters were passing out hats, champagne gasses, noise makers, and other cool NYE stuff. Of course we did a countdown and had a blast. Spending NYE at LuxBar with my sister is our new tradition."

  • "They packed people in like sardines. Very uncomfortable. The servers and waiters could barely get around. They took Way too many reservations and it made for an Unpleasant dinner. The food good but we waited a long time for our Meals. Something was spilled on my coat and purse. Would not go back. Way too many other great places To go in that area of the city."
