Met fellow revelers for a pre-birthday lunch at the LuxBar. As it was a warm afternoon, outdoor seating was not to be missed as all the eye candy you could ever want paraded up and down Bellevue Place. Would've been better had there been shaded seating available, but the food and the company made for a perfect early afternoon. Enjoyed... More

I live a few blocks away from Lux Bar and it is a great choice for any meal. The space is lively without being rowdy. Service is always good and food is very consistent. Elevated bar fare dominates the menu with a few surprises thrown in at times. Good place for a relatively cheap breakfast on the weekend.

We were staying across the street at the Thompson Hotel so we decided to check out Luxbar for breakfast one morning. Overall I thought it was a really good meal and the atmosphere in the restaurant is also really nice. The Bloody Marys are great as well. I was with a group of 6 and everyone had something different off... More

Visited this restaurant in Wednesday night. We were promptly seated outside for terrific people watching. Enough so that we saw Terrance Howard arrive and eat in the restaurant. The salads are terrific and you can order them in half sizes. The lobster toll was delicious as well.

After a long night of partying having a chill breakfast is ideal. From the Sofitel hotel Yelp suggested the Original House of Pancakes. When we arrived the long was around the block. The Lux bar was next door with out a wait. We sat out side sorry that I did not provide any pictures. We ordered the full stack (5... More

Fantastic meal in wonderful surroundings! We skipped entrees as we tend to do when in the USA. I had salmon as a main which was cooked medium well, as I'd requested. My husband had pan roasted Millers farm chicken. Both meals were perfect! We were informed that there would be a wait of twenty minutes for cooking time on the... More

Stopped with four friends for a bottle wine and hummus. It was a beautiful night to sit outside, they have excellent hummus and lovely wine.

I would put it at 4 1/2 if the ratings had that option. A varied menu that allowed all of us to find something we wanted, and we all enjoyed it. One of best Manhattans I have had too. The server was knowledgeable and attentive but not intrusive.

We found this spot on OpenTable during our recent visit to Chicago and booked a reservation before arriving. Food was good. Great brunch drinks and large portions. The patio was full, so we got stuck in a corner inside at a small high top table. Wasn't ideal for 4 people, but we made it work.

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.
