Comfort Food
Perfect For:
  • Neighborhood Gem
  • Casual
  • Fun
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.

LuxBar Restaurant April 15, 2018
The game and food- food and the game with Roc on Sunday evening after a full and wonderful day of praise/worship at ACOG-chicago.org.


Drop Roc at the restaurant and found a parking meter near Rush and on Elm.

The our table was near the fire place. The fireplace has a big screen TV over top. Cleveland was playing Milwalkee....

This Rochelle favor turkey burger place.
She ordered the burgers with grilled onions, some type of cheese with lettuce and tomato. Yes your choice of cold slaw or french fries, and one of each with dijon mustard.

We ask for calamari as an appetizer. Please make sure it is hot. The waiter has good hearing. Nothing like a good listener.

LuxBar makes real lemonade with mint leafs for Roc.

The bun was toasted, the cheese was melted, and running down on the sides. The french fries was just a little heavy on the salt....
That was on me, i did not said not salt on the fries...

The turkey or turkeys gave their life for our meal and that was a great thing for us.. Just good for eating.

We has a great waiter and great staff....

We saw Cleveland loss the 1st game in the playoffs.
We are coming back again for turkey burgers.
The menu is very good. We would normally eat with Roc side of the family at this place.

The service is always exemplary and the food reliable, consistent and has made some things into our favorites there: the steak frites is a great value and delicious, the sandwiches are large and hearty, and brunch choices have been perfect for every member of our group anytime we've been there.
Our mistake this last time was going on a Friday early evening to catch-up with friends when the noise level is at its peak and it was a little disappointing since we had asked for a booth and would have had to wait quite some time...booths are typically quieter. Previously we've gone many other times with Sunday evening being the best for conversation followed by lunch, brunch, and some week nights. Don't rule it out because of the noise, but choose your time carefully if conversation is to be a main event. Nothing else there will ever disappoint.

Been going since LuxBar opened. As prices increase, food quality and staff turnover disappoints!
They took a bad chicken offering, made it better, then reverted to the bad recipe again! Two new waitresses, in three days, who needed better training! Each admitted being a bit scared and were not attentive in getting bar drinks and food to the table!
Best thing going now will be outdoor seating.....
(Chief manager managed to avoid my eye entire second time in a week’s fiasco; not smart to ignore a regular when headcount appears way down!)

Don’t come here for a date! It’s very noisy and full of crying/yelling children. Food is mediocre for the price tag and cocktail wise I had the worst “old fashioned” of my life. This place is a bad fusion between a pub and a sports bar.

A friend who moved away was craving Lux Bar. We shared a few small plates and had a couple martinis. Cedric was our server and he as fanatic and friendly. Both managers stopped by to check in with us. Loved the teamwork!

They didn't have our reservation when we walked in. They had to scramble to find the right table and then we had to wait. We were told OpenTable canceled our reservation. Can you confirm?

Our waitress, I can't remember her name (sorry!), was fantastic! Very attentive! She was training someone at the same time and was doing a really great job doing that and setting the bar high with customer service! 5/5 for her.

To keep this as short and Informative as possible.
The Luxbar is a Chicago gem. The service is beyond amazing and the food? Devine! It’s Upscale, trendy, yet Chicago charming. Our server Mark (Robert) was thee most humble, attentive, and charismatic server we’ve had to date. He was simply as breath of fresh air... he was also, the manager. How often do you frequent an establishment where the manager serves you? He was not in a suit and tie and we never would have thought. We were completely floored by the excellent, and exceptional service! 5 stars! Three letters.. OMG! Just an amazing time!
