Originally tried to book a group of 20 at Gibson's and was directed here to their restaurant across the street. My first time there and was very pleased. We had the entire upstairs to ourselves which was great. The bartender and banquet manager (I'm annoyed I can't find his card) were amazing and worked their butt's off to make everything... More

I had dinner with a friend here during a recent trip to Chicago on a Saturday night. It was incredibly busy, but the bar seating was first come, first serve so we were able to snag a table pretty quickly. Overall, it was a great experience. I was especially impressed with the service and promptness of our order given how... More

We held a private party for 50 people here, rented the whole top floor and it was perfect!! Held cocktails on the bar side and then sat down at formal tables on the dinner side. The venue itself is nice, great location with outside patio overlooking rush street. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was great, the... More

Food was nothing great but the service was very good. I didn't enjoy my meal but the waitress w/o my prompting took it off the bill. Very professional service.

Comfortable, friendly and good food. Was staying across the street one night and just wanted something simple. Food was quite good, heavy, and just what I wanted. Had the calamari and steak sliders. Too much but oh well. Super friendly bartender too.

There are three places on Rush Street you must try. Hugh, Gibsons and Lux Bar. They are all run by the same people. Breakfast and lunch are great there.

Our organization had an event on their second floor, two rooms, bar and dining room sound sealed with tables for 70 people. Veranda in bar overlooks all of the outdoor café life of summer Chicago. Careful service. Great food.

While visiting Chicago met a guy who worked here. He invited us to come have supper there and we were not disappointed! The food was great, the service was excellent, and I would definately be back!

Came in for dinner later Thursday after arriving in town. Luxbar is across the street from the hotel I was staying at (Thompson). The atmosphere was nice, definitely upscale though not quite white table cloth. I took a seat in the bar area so that I would have a view of the TV's. Good sized menu with a great beer... More
