Thank You

We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Chicago Bars And Breweries That Have Reopened For Outdoor Drinking

A running list of bars and breweries in Chicago that are open.

Written by
Updated June 18th, 2020

Starting June 17th, bars in Chicago are officially allowed to reopen for outdoor drinking, and we want to provide you with the most up-to-date information we have. For now, we’re simply going to focus on what we know: which places are opening back up, and any policies they might have that go beyond the city’s Phase III guidelines. For a cheat sheet on what those are, read our FAQ.

While bars and restaurants are in the process of reopening, many places are still offering carryout and delivery. Check out our collection for hundreds of takeout and delivery options across the city.
