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.

Great cocktails and vibes! Walking through the liquor store to enter Osito is cool. Outdoor patio setup is great and now has warmers.

Overall, we had an enjoyable experience! The drinks were the highlight of the evening, solid and creative drinks. The asparagus appetizer was tasty; the gambas were OK because they seemed to be a bit overcooked. It reminded me of tapas-style gambas but needed more flavor. The mussels were excellent, a great combination with the dried chiles. The chicken entree and dessert were OK. Something seemed off with the flavors. It is a new restaurant and they are testing and trying new things. I am sure they will improve their food.

Wonderful service, great drinks, will for sure be going back and brining more friends. Staff easily adjusted our seating when we had an extra person join, kept tables at a distance in precautions of Covid and lots of sanitizer around.

Not a big selection in food items, but the items we ordered were very delicious. We went more for their cocktails and they were all amazing. Reasonably priced, delicious, and great service. Every staff member was very friendly! I will definitely go back for drinks.

Innovative menu with not so typical samples of different regions of Mexico. We really liked the ambience, the music, the service, and the innovative flavors of the cocktails and entrees

This is the kind of neighborhood hidden gem that every traveler hopes to find in another city, or another continent. But lucky us, we found it on the south side of Chicago!

Dim lit and great drinks. A bit more upscale than most places in the area. Look over the menu before arriving. Our cellphones WiFi had issues when I was there

Cocktails are very creative and tasty. The food is delicious and very flavorful, but portions would not satisfy an empty stomach. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Overall, highly recommend!

This is truly an amazing establishment, the staff were very attentive and personable. Loved everything about this place! I drove 45 min. from the suburbs to check out this gem in my old stomping ground. I plan on becoming a regular! LOL!

Amazing food and drinks. We ordered a range of cocktails (La Dama, La Colorada, La Pepinaso, La Reina, pina michelada) mussels, the chorizo torta, and vasos locos. Nothing disappointed! Cocktails were well-balanced and unique blends. Food was flavorful & delicious. The patio seating is spread out for social distancing and off of the the busy street. Will absolutely be back! Thank you Osito’s!

I was disappointed to find out that they do not actually use Open Table. I showed them my reservation and they were surprised to see it. Therefore, my party and I had to wait about 25 minutes to be seated. Other than this, we enjoyed the music and drinks.

Good afternoon, we do apologies about this. OpenTable made our booking page public without our permission and before we had even were trained or had access to our account. We did notify them immediately upon finding out they were allowing reservations and put a stop to it. But again we're sorry this happened to you and now that we are in control of our site we plan on making sure this doesn't happen again.
