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.
