Mai Tai!!

Great location right off of Rush Street and good curb appeal! I met a friend for a drink at the bar before we went to dinner and had one of the best Mai Tai's I have ever had, to include a large sprig of fresh mint and crushed ice! The service was a little slow at the Bar but it... read more

If you like a Manhattan, this is the place to go. They actually have their own Manhattan menu. Food is great, fun location, love sidewalk dining when we can.

Went here for New Years Day brunch. Seated right away upstairs, as the main floor/bar area was packed. Service was great, and not just the waitress. Everyone pitches in to make sure you place an order, get coffee, water. Even the manager was helping bus the tables. Everyone kept asking how things were, did we need anything else, etc. Very...

Wonderful escape while shopping in Chicago. Wide variety of beverages, food and relaxing atmosphere. Our waitress Grace made us feel so welcome that we stayed for dessert. She helped us with the menu and food selections and she was right on! Will return for sure!

I have been here several times for breakfast and once for appetizers and drinks. Love the eggs benedict, service is attentive, its a hip, cozy bar. Ask for a table by the fireplace, so comfy and warm.

Great for drinks and late snack, but very crowded and busy. Fine for having fun, but not for talking. Fair prices and fast service.

This is a must for beautiful people watching and drinks. The food is much better than you expect. Thurs-Sat night after 8 is prime viewing hours! This is from the same group that runs Gibsons - service is consistently excellent at the tables and likewise at the bar.

This was the first restaurant my wife and I visited upon our arrival in Chicago and we were not unhappy. The service and ambiance was at classic pub/bar/restaurant level and after we built our own Manhattans we could have probably stayed all night had we not had jet lag. Great time!

Luxbar offers delicious food in a great atmosphere. The waitstaff and bartenders are friendly. The steaks are cooked to order and taste outbid this world. The turtle macaroon ice cream cake was delectable. I'd eagerly go back for another dinner.

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.
