Beatnik is an exotic escape with maximalist interiors, sun-filled rooms, lush gardens, ingredient-led cocktails and Mediterranean cuisine in Chicago’s West Town.
Named after the bohemian freethinkers of the 1950s and ’60s, Beatnik West Town channels the beatnik generation’s sense of style, aspiration and rebellion to create an exotic escape with maximalist interiors, lush gardens, ingredient-led cocktails and Mediterranean cuisine.
Mirroring our design-through-storytelling whimsy, Executive Chef Marcos Campos takes guests on a journey through the Middle East with flavors from Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Northern Syria while utilizing local farms in the Midwest. Beatnik’s bar finds a fine balance between relaxed and attentive service, with a team that elevates the experience with a culinary approach to craft cocktails.
Drinks are savory and fresh, with inventive recipes that follow a no-waste sensibility by utilizing kitchen leftovers or ingredients found in our gardens or the cocktails they adorn.
We accept group reservations for parties of up to 24 guests. No need to call ahead, just book online, and we'll see you and your friends soon.
From intimate happy hours and jubilant milestones to company buyouts and special occasions, our passionate and skilled events team is ready to help you plan a perfect event.
