Speakeasy
Established in 2019, Osito’s Tap is a “speakeasy” style bar focused on the art of craft spirts, craft beer & craft cocktails. Located in the heart of the Little Village neighborhood of Chicago, our community oriented bar brings a modern Latin flair to a classic Chicago vibe. Once home to a Bohemian bar in the early 1900’s for Czech immigrants, this historic Grey-stone building was the front to an underground bookie joint. We pay homage to our community’s past by blending our neighborhoods rich history with Little Village’s current Latino culture. Here at Osito’s Tap, we aim to give our customers a unique and interactive experience filled with exotic and rare drinks by incorporating our values of education, community, inclusiveness and enjoyment.

It was our first time eating at Osito's Tap, and the food was excellent, much like all of the drink cocktails, each dish was creatively crafted with outstanding flavors. We cannot wait to come back.

Went her for my birthday and was blown away by this place. Ambiance was perfect, drinks were delicious, and our bartender Tim gave a great recommendations and info on his favorite tequilas (which naturally we sampled). I’ve already told some friends they need to visit 💙 10/10

Ositos is attached to Morenos liquors which is literally the best place to get tequila and mezcal in the midwest. The speak easy is a welcome addition. Food choices were limited for brunch, but very tasty. Ositos provides the perfect opportunity to taste different drinks to see how you like them, then bring a whole bottle - or 3 - home.

Wet bought 4 of the main brunch entrees and shared them among our party of 3 and it was great. Molletes and lemon glazed pancakes were phenomenal. We left regretting not having tried the pozole.

The moment you walk in, the staff makes you feel like you're in their home. Everyone is so welcoming and eager to explain each dish, cocktail or large inventory of great spirits. You must try the Tlayuda. So delish! And if Denise (she's a creative genius of her craft) is tending bar, ask if she could make you one of her off menu cocktails. You will thank me for that!

Osito's is a very cozy and comfortable little spot, with great mood lighting, beyond Friendly servers, and amazing drinks! I had several Jamaica Sunrises which are delicious! My partner had too many Johnny's which were also diving. If you're looking for a place with exquisite cocktails, then check out Osito's!
Plus! Their dog is ADORABLE!!

10/10 Recommend this restaurant. The food is unique and delicious and the service is fantastic. We had a great conversation with our waitress about the food and it’s history. Their cocktail and beer selections are great and you really can’t go wrong. I will definitely be back in the near future.

Went here for date night. What a beautiful and intimate atmosphere with low lighting, cozy seating, unique cocktails, and flavorful bites. If “neighborhood vibe” is what you prefer, eat outdoors on a warm, summer night; but if you’re going for the “speakeasy vibe,” request a booth after 8p.

We have been to Osito's 5 times and each time we get great service. The food is amazing and the cocktails are tasty. We like that they have a rotating menu so we don't have the same items each time we go back. We intend on returning.

As soon as you enter, you get speakeasy vibes. The fact it’s attached to a liquor store is actually pretty cool. The cocktails are phenomenal. They have really good craft beer on tap. Despite being vegan, they have a few veg friendly choices, so I enjoyed their vegan tacos and they were amazing. I can imagine the rest of their food being equally good. Highly rate them.
