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 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.

Perfection as always!! I’m a hardcore devotee of LB and will be forever!! Amazing food, service, people watching & ambiance (the outdoor sidewalk seating gets me every summer. Just like Europe!!) Extra points for all the COVID precautions too. You guys set the bar. Love love love!! Third time I’ve been in a week & consistently blows me away no matter the day or time. Best part about living in the Gold Coast is being a block away from LB, I always say!! Thanks so much to the entire LB team—you guys are amazing. Best, Amelia Boo

Continually I find host stand in need of better customer skills. Thursday I was tested negative for COViD. The guy took my temperature as I stood in 100 degree heat with a hat on and read I was hot found it offensive given I was tested but he was rude. The girl took it 30 sec later normal. If your going to put a thermometer up to someone’s head clean it every time and be polite. For that matter maybe your thermometer was hot from the heat. As I said at this place I find the front staff a challenge this is not the first time. Servers are the best accommodating , attentive and friendly.

It’s always good here, the service always impeccable and the food very good. It is on the pricey side, it it’s all about location and people wanting to be seen, which is not me, but it’s close to family, so we go there. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy it or wouldn’t go there if I didn’t live close by, just that I wouldn’t go out of my way to go here.

The calamari was great and I think the two friends that had the steak frites thought it was good. The salmon had by two of us, was overcooked, not seasoned and dry-the brussel sprouts blah. Lovely atmosphere and table.
I would recommend it for the nice vibe and the food has been better in the past.
I will try it again.

We made reservations a week ahead and indicated out door seating due to COVID
We arrived 20 minutes early and was told we would have to wait and offered in door dining
Which we did not feel comfortable.
Host then told us to wait outside and a table which we reserved will be available shortly
Because others were paying and leaving soon!
We waited another 30 minutes
Upon checking again was told, “first come, first served. The only place they could offer was in there balcony near a window, we took cause we were hungry,
Be aware that what you reserve is not what you get. If you have concerns about COVID don’t book Lux Bar!

I ordered a simple salad and the buttermilk chicken. The salad consisted mainly of huge pieces of iceberg lettuce and the chicken was sooooooo over cooked - dry and tough.
