We met our don their for dinner and had a delightful time. Martinis were good as was the hummus appetizer platter followed by a lobster cocktail( for my wife) and the tuna tartar salads. We had great service with a smile from CARA. While they have changed the menu closer to the old, they do need to have a veggie... More

Was at Luxbar last night for dinner. The service was terrible. From the hostess to the server everyone had a bad attitude. Stay away!

Brunch here is great, wide food selection. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for families, even a late night snack at the bar.

Enjoyed dinner last night with a group of colleagues at LuxBar. Everything was absolutely delicious! We started with the truffle fries and the line caught tuna poke. All I can say is WOW! If you love tuna.... Order it! I ordered the filet for dinner which was cooked to perfection and very tender with great flavor. The roasted brussels sprouts... More

After one appetizer (fish tacos were amazing!) and a drink my husband, myself and another couple decided to leave. We sat at the bar so we only interacted with the bartender. However, the bartender was not friendly and wouldn't even look at us in the eyes. He had no personality and appeared to be busy although there were us four... More

We had just flown into Chicago late and wanted a quick burger in a nice atmosphere and Lux Bar was perfect. The burgers were perfectly cooked, service attentive, great wine selection.

It can get a little noisy but overall the space is large and the service is good. The filet medallions are amazing and you cannot beat the people watching opportunity.

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food at this place. We eat outside. Not sure if I would have liked it as much if Iwe eat inside because it was extremely loud. Outside you can hear yourself speak. The service was great and the food was excellent. The sides were all good too!

Thank cintrix

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.
