Comfort Food
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 Gibsons Steakhouse & Hugo's Frog Bar famous for legendary service.
Reservation requests for patio seating are not accepted. Patio seating is first come, first serve.

    Food and drinks were good. Nothing that stood out that “wow that was incredible”. But nothing was soggy, under cooked, or poorly seasoned. Service was decent, we were lost for about 12-15 minutes and needed a refill, but she apologized and we understand things happen. Spent about $150 between the two of us, wish I could say, there was something that was awesome and couldn’t wait to come back.

    Went here to celebrate my engagement to my now fiancé, it was the spot where we had our first date. I let LixBar know ahead of time; they gave us an amazing table, sent over some champagne on the house, and just helped us celebrate overall. It’s long been a Chicago staple of mine but they really went above and beyond for us!

    we snagged a reservation online and was able to be sat thirty minutes early. I was very happy to be trying Lux because I am a huge fan of the Gibsons Group. The drinks were good. The overall experience was not. The steak was overcooked and tasted like it was under a heat lamp too long, not what I expect with a steak advertised as being "Gibsons". My dates fries, which I recommend to anyone getting a sandwich were limp and not the usual crispy fries you get at Gibsons. Atmosphere is fun which is helpful because there is not enough staffing for the volume of people. It's something you have to deal with under the current environment but there is no excuse for bad food.

    There was an emergency extremely long wait - our reservation was for 845pm but we were seated 1hr later. Since Tavern on Rush closed, the wait has been SO long despite having a reservation. That being said, once we were seated, the service and food was outstanding. The manager Mitsuru Nelson stopped by multiple times to apologize and ended up taking over $50 off our final bull. The calamari, luxe burger, aussie burger and guac & cchups were outstanding!!

    My family came to visit from Boston so I took them here to my favorite breakfast spot on Sunday morning! It did not disappoint! My son-in-law was hesitating to order an Irish coffee so early in the morning, but I convinced him to try what are usually do … and the Irish coffees I have come to love (with only half a shot of whiskey instead of the one and a half that is usually added) were made perfectly, and brought to the table with the coffee hot, the whipped cream cold, and the layers still separated perfectly when the drinks were placed before us. The food was terrific of course, as always, the classic eggs Benedict better than what is served at most restaurants, and the pancakes, bacon and eggs ordered by everyone else were cooked to perfection. We missed Ryan tho, the host we came to look forward to seeing, but the service by hosts and servers alike could not possibly be improved upon! Thank you!

    Tried new chorizo appetizer. Tasted very good but not much food for $15 compared to other appetizer options. Either lower price point ($10-12 at most) or increase portion. Very good item but value lacking with that item compared to others on menu

    We ate outside where it was much quieter than in the restaurant itself. The hostess was charming and patient, successfully accommodating a large crowd on a beautiful Fall weekend day. Our server had only been working for 3 weeks and she was excellent: she answered our questions and made recommendations based on knowledge of the products offered. She was friendly and professional, and checked on us without seeming overbearing or in a hurry to get us on our way so they could seat others who were waiting. We had the Aussie BBQ Burger and the Gibsons Gold Helles Lager. Everything was delicious. The burgers were cooked exactly to order and the fries were hot and crispy. William Murphy, a manager who is moving to Gibsons Italia, stopped by for a quick chat. Everyone made us feel like we were valued guests.

    My family (including a toddler) went to meet a friend for brunch. Luxbar was super accommodating and attentive. I first questioned if the atmosphere would be okay for a toddler but after dining there I would never hesitate to bring my toddler again. She loved their turkey sausage and watching all the employees in action. The staff worked so smooth you can tell they work as a team.

    Overall it was a fine experience, as LuxBar can be depended upon to offer a wonderful brunch experience. Not up to its usual high standards though, as the high point of my weekly brunch is always the Irish coffee. The cream was thin and deflated and the coffee cold when it arrived, and while the rest of the meal was wonderful, the cold Irish coffee stole a star from this review … usually always a five.
