Chicago Bars & Restaurants That Are Closed Right Now Due To Covid-19

Some are reporting staff exposures, while others are simply taking precautions.

The recent rise in Covid cases has caused some Chicago restaurants and bars to temporarily shut down.

We’ve rounded up those places below, in order to keep you informed on the state of your city and to encourage you to support these restaurants when they can reopen (some of them are selling gift cards in the meantime). We’ll continue to update our list as more information becomes available.
