The Takito Kitchen team opens its second location, Bar Takito, in the old Kabocha space in the West Loop. There will be more tacos and margaritas, but the menu is more expansive than the original, with large plates, seafood grilled on a plancha and a larger drink list.

This trendy little spot sits in the heart of Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. Aside from a little reservation snafu, this place was worth the trip. The decor is industrial with a latin feel; between the bright colors and the live music from their house band (on Thursday nights) there was plenty to take in. Our first round of drinks were the cucumber margaritas, recommended by their knowledgeable and friendly bartender and they didn't disappoint. We ordered the octopus a la plancha (which I will be dreaming about and salivating over for days to come!) and the mahi mahi ceviche. Their menu is 100% gluten free and boasted plenty of fresh sustainable seafood. Everything was delicious and the service was great. The bartenders and servers are knowledgeable and made great recommendations. I'm looking forward to coming back and trying more of their menu!


Great food, delicious creative cocktails, and relaxed atmosphere. Staff is always kind, and music is upbeat. Always a great time!


The margaritas are fabulous. The menu is distinctive, innovative and delicious. Their staff is warm, inviting and friendly. If you have not been to Bar Takito, what are you waiting for?


Absolutely the best margaritas in Chicago! Complement that with amazing Latin American cuisine, in a fun, open, social and urban atmosphere ... and you have a winner in Bar Takito! Don't take my word for it ... check it out ... the place is always hopping busy!

I was curious about Bar Takito after an enjoyable experience at Takito Kitchen in Wicker Park and hearing about its trendy sister in the West Loop!

Came here with a small group and was immediately impressed with the industrial chic decor and graciously accommodating host.

We thoroughly enjoyed our raspberry rose speciality margaritas and hibiscus infused mezcal cocktail. $18 was a little steep for 4 tacos which you cannot mix and match, but I shared the brunkow cheese with a fellow vegetarian - delicious! The perfectly grilled cheese was a nice contrast with crunchy peanuts and pickled jicama. We also ordered a roasted squash salad which was surprisingly filling. A highlight was our sweet and friendly server who gave excellent ordering recommendations and even suggestions for nearby bars to grab an after dinner drink!
