Who doesn't like to go out for drinks....but sometimes, you want to bring your own sand to the beach, right? Today, we're highlighting some of the best BYOB spots in Chicago. They have great food, and the bottle you bring is the perfect nightcap in the Food & Restaurant Capital.
Personally, this is one of my favorites. They have 3 locations in the West Loop/West Town area, and some of the best sushi in the City. Bring your bottle and they'll provide the rest!
Steak is always nicely paired with a good red wine. Their steak is pretty stellar. Whatever your pairing choice, you can bring it to Tango Sur for a great dining experience.
Batter & Berries
This is one of our brunch favorites, but because we love it so much, we're noting it as a BYOB spot as well. The Flight of French Toast is a must, the chicken and waffles is a can't miss, and the lobster or crab omelet will please your tastebuds without fail. Bringing in your own bottle is just another perk to brunch here. There's also a 7-Eleven just east of it--in case you forget your main mimosa ingredient.
This spot is small, but uniquely designed. It's perfect for a date or a couple friends catching up. They welcome your bottles, and you should welcome their cuisine!
The name says it all. It's a Chicago cornerstone and is situated right in the Loop near state and local government buildings. Not only can you bring your own bottles, but you get great Italian food, and might even see a politico or 2.
"Contemprary brunch with a peel" is their motto. They serve brunch with a twist, offering a weekly special pancake flight, and also offer homemade granola. You can purchase their Orange roast coffee to go, too. All this, and they'll ice your bottle for you.
A West Loop hot spot for sure. As Randolph St. now serves at "Restaurant Row", this establishment on the western edge of the strip is a unique blend of good food and atmosphere. Bring your own alcohol for this fun communal dining experience.
