Good pub food but a bit expensive

My boyfriend and I stayed in Chicago for a week at the Thompson Center Hotel and since Luxbar was directly across the street we gave it a try. I had researched restaurants before our trip and saw that the Pub menu (which I now can't find online)was fairly reasonable cost-wise given the location... read more

We've now been to LuxBar three times. The first time we felt maybe the place had potential which is why we went back a second time only for us to have a bad experience which is why it's been 5 months since our last visit. This time we went for lunch and sat out as it was a gorgeous summer... More

We stopped in last February for a quick lunch before leaving the city. Our server was friendly and efficient and we enjoyed our meals. Will return when in the area again.

For someone who's a "lightweight", I ended up in this bar twice in one day! First time was for a mid-afternoon glass of wine with my friend, a native Chicagoan, who becomes a tourist in her own city whenever I visit...very nice bar menu (food and drinks) and the bar staff is friendly and extremely knowledgable...we left with quite an...

Incredible lunch. The best Club sandwich I've ever had; dense, thin, crustless bread with perfectly cooked fried egg and moist roast chicken. Fries (fresh cut) were sensational. Sesame Seared Yellowfin Tuna was so so good. Great experience. Thank you.

We went here one evening in February when it was absolutely freezing as it was very close to our hotel. We were seated straight away and enjoyed a mocktail/cocktail before ordering food. The food was very good and the service was efficient. Glad we went here- had my first American grilled cheese sandwich here!

I have had dinner at the Luxbar. The food is good quality, after all it is owned by the same group that owns the renowned Gibsons Steakhouse across the street and Hugos. This is the more casual and price reasonable themed place. Full menu of items, but has a nice bar atmosphere. When 4 of us had dinner on the... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
