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.

LUXBAR Ratings and Reviews
Met my nephew and his girlfriend at the bar for a late dinner and drinks. The bar was full on a Tuesday night. The cocktails were very creative and delicious (even if they were a bit pricy). They had a Pumpkin Beer that I loved. The food was very good and our waitress was very accommodating as we took a long time to order. She made excellent suggestions and was fun.
Love this place and food is great. Today they were packed, which made me feel like a sardine as their tables are so close together. If you happen to be of a larger size, it would be near impossible to navigate this restaurant . I know the more seats the better for the restaurant, but you may want to rethink the current layout. Even your great wait staff was fiding it difficult to manuver.
Service was awful for lunchtime with virtually no one in the restaurant! Took forever to get 2 eggs. The food Is always great, the place is clean and the Maître D' was friendly, though the waitresses seemed annoyed at our presence. She practically refused to give me bacon with my eggs although there was bacon on the menu.
This was a nice little lunch spot - quiet, but it was right after New Year's Day. The food portions are very large and we ordered too much. The avocado with King Crab was delicious, but there wasn't much crab meat. Same story with the Tuna Poke; lots of mango, not as much tuna, but full of flavor. My husband had the club and it was huge, we could have split that easily. The Brussels sprouts were excellent. The service was ok. Lot's of food runners and bus boys doing a whole lot of nothing. I had to ask my waitress for a tea refill 3 times.
LuxBar is one of my favorite local options. I reside nearby and find this place a great option for 'comfort' food, outstanding service, and great drinks. Pending your timing and sitting location it can be very noisy. Something to keep in mind. I've had several of the menu options from a simple Kale and Chicken salad to a Cheeseburger. As mentioned a nice option for a great meal knowing that in the later evenings it can get more energetic.
I was looking for a nearby place for a brunch get together with friends. While this was not my first choice due to lack of table availability at other establishments, I ended up making a reservation at Luxbar. Coming in from the cold and rain we were all pleasantly greeted by an ambiance that is warm and welcoming.
We arrived on time and were seated almost immediately. Within minutes of being seated our waiter came by to see if we were interested in drinks. Upon returning with our beverages he took our food orders. In between our drink and food orders the place became very crowded.
Despite what appeared to be an endless flow of people coming and going, the service was impeccable. The food taste and quality was top notch. All this was delivered at prices that do not destroy your budget.
If you are looking for an all around enjoyable brunch experience, give Luxbar a shot. Just be sure to make a reservation.
As always LUX BAR was right on point - Owned and operated by the Gibson's group, everything is done right in this gold coast hot spot. The food, service, well thought craft cocktail and craft beer lists as well as a very nice wine list and a terrific atmosphere make LUX BAR a true home run!
Lux Bar is always a neighborhood staple in the Gold Coast. The food is consistently good, with fair portion sizes. They just introduced a happy hour menu featuring $5 glasses of (good) wine and their famous truffle fries. Great for a casual get-together or upscale event.
