Bar Biscay Chicago

Bar Biscay – Modern tapas bar

Inspired by Bay of Biscay in the northern part of Spain that borders with France, this modern tapas spot is a transcendent neighborhood spot along the Chicago Ave corridor in West Town. The space has some European influences along with coastal vibes, making you feel like you’re stepping into another part of the world. The long sleek bar is perfect for meeting up for neighborhood drinks and snacks, and their cozy booths are great for a more intimate date or gathering with a few friends. 

They have an ever-evolving seasonal menu that focuses on Spain in the summer and France in the winter, cultivating deliciously unique culinary encounters. From savory handhelds like empanadas to freshly prepared seafood dishes to hearty and skillfully grilled meats, their team has defined the perfect balance of foodie-centric while also being laid back.

I love enjoying some of their artful craft cocktails or carefully curated wines to wash down all of these shareable delights.

Whether you sit in the dining room, at the bar, or weather permitting, on the patio, this neighborhood spot is classy without being pretentious.
