Sergio Suarez Sr. was born in Jalisco, Mexico; where tequila originates from. His son David Suarez, lead the efforts in creating La Tequileria Premium Tequila Lounge and Mexican Tapas. David saw the need for a place that captured the essence of their Mexican heritage and its sophistication. In thinking through La Tequileria's concept, he realized that the Chicago drink scene and nightlife didn't offer a place that focused on tequila. Chicago needed a place where people can learn, taste, and experience tequila as if you were in Jalisco, Mexico yourself. Through that vision, La Tequileria was born and opened its doors in late April 2017. In November 2017, the services extended to serve modern twist on Mexican Tapas!
This place was great! I always like to try new places and this one makes the list of places to go again. A group of friends and family went to celebrate my birthday and we all had a great time. The band started setting up while we were their and they played very well. The music fit the environment. The drinks are unique and are full of flavor. I guarantee you wont taste these drinks anywhere else. I don't know how many different tequilas they have but it had to be about 200 different types on the list. Food portion is kinda small, but still good. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. (A+ for that). I definitely recommended going at least once if you want to try some good drinks and upbeat atmosphere.
As soon as we get there staff is really nice really good service!! The food is DELICIOUS!!
More Latin music, don’t offer to the people a expensive tequila shots without say it the prices first and maybe they need to put a security guard in the place just in case!
It was our first time here and we loved it from the food to drinks. Our server was awesome thank you Diana! We definitely will be coming back!
Drinks and dinner where amazing. I will be back very soon with my husband for dinner and drinks.
What an amazing find right in our back yard! Amazing tapas and selection of tequilas at all price points. Next time we'll come later in order to catch the live music 9:30pm Thurs to Sat. I'd love it if the music started earlier! Spacious yet cozy, great decor and service. Authentic.
We will be back!
Really good drinks, tacos are not the best, I’ll recommend to go just for drinks, the live music was nice
Always a great time when I go..drinks are always made fresh and taste so delicious ...duck carnitas and shrimp ceviche is my go to dishes
Great spot for getting together with friends or just enjoying some good drinks with your date plus good food and entertainment.
This was our 2nd visit & enjoyed it even more than the first time because we brought family with us. Can't say enough how much they provided a most pleasurable experience for us all. Will definitely return!
First timers and we love the place. A little bit pricey for small portions. Great people/servers/managers that they make you feel very welcome. Live music is an added value to the place.
Great high quality Mexican food with great drinks and Avery knowledgeable wait staff.
Amazing food and drinks!
Live music was a nice touch to the beautiful ambience
Drinks were okay, nothing special. They were little overpriced for what they taste and the location. For the same price I rather go to rosemont or downtown
The food was spectacular! I had the chilaquiles with an egg and the chorizo sliders. The micheladas are huge, tasty and beautifully presented. Sunday brunches with live music is a good time for a friends meet up or anything like that.
If was a great experience, I guess Tuesday evening are not to busy so we have a great time . 🍹🍹drinks and food so good 😊
Very nice interior, with a good variety of seating to meet any type of group or occasion. Well curated, if small, menu. Food was well executed and delicious. Cocktails were exceptional, and the variety of tequilas was huge. We were there too early to see the live entertainment so cannot comment on the noise level once that gets rolling.
Excellent experience and service
Everything was perfect. From the music to the food and the service. Had a great time and am excited to come back
If you're looking for signature drinks, this it the spot. I loooove the Jesus Maria. We always have a good time whenever we come here.
Drinks and food were great. Food portion and price are not on par.
The food was over priced. There is a taco place next door for %30 less. The drink prices are what you expect at a downtown place. This is Melrose Park. The band was nice. Great drink selections
The Jesus Maria cocktail was amazing!!!!!
Dope dope tequila dope dope dope dope dope dope dope dope dope
My favorite place for great drinks and food! Love the atmosphere and the service is outstanding!!!
I loved the decor and ambiance. Our server Emilio was outstanding!!! He knew it was our first time there and he took his time explaining everything and making suggestions. The drinks were absolutely delish! The food also tasted good. The portions are small so if you're really really hungry, this is not the spot! It's more of a lounge and a place to enjoy a cocktail.
Great service, drinks are fantastic! live music was great, we will be back!
The food was phenomenal, great unique flavors but pricey for the portion size you get.
Even though it is a tequila bar, the food is outstanding- as are the drinks!
I really enjoyed the cocktails and food. But the music was too loud for after work to have diner and we asked to have it turned down so we could talk but kept getting louder. We were the only people there early after work.
Such an great experience. Everything was beyond perfect from food to our waiter. Staff was very attentive and made conversation with us so they make you feel like you’re hanging out with friends. The live music was such a pleasant surprise. Highly recommend.
Awesome atmosphere, awesome drinks, awesome staff. Great experience
Excellent drinks, excellent tapas. Loud music however, hard to talk over it. Nice wait staff. Will do back!
It is a great place! they have so many brands of great tequila. Live music, because of the great variety of tequilas the shots are a little bit too expensive but it is a very nice and unique experience. Food menu has few items and also pricey but despite that you will have very good time. Highly recommend it.
Jennifer was amazing as our wait staff. She new the menus and gave us great recommendations. The atmosphere was electric. Had a great time.
Service was great! Emilio was very attentive ... The live music is amazing :)

Great food & especially great drinks!!! Will definitely go back.. fun place.
