Where to Sip a Refreshing Margarita in Chicago

In most U.S. cities, margaritas are the most popular alcoholic drink served at bars and restaurants. Chicago is different, where cold weather makes whisky drinks like the Old Fashioned, stirred and boozy drinks, are more popular. But Chicago transforms in the spring and summer making the city crave some thing more refreshing. The city has no shortage of quality Mexican restaurants and bars that specialize in tequila and mezcal, so drinkers are in for a treat, not just the sugar-bloated messes mixed at chain restaurants. The city’s margaritas mix up style and fun, here’s a few of the best.

As of April 29, Chicago restaurants are permitted to serve customers indoors with a 50 percent maximum capacity per room, or 100 people — whichever is fewer. Regardless, the state requires reservations for both indoor and outdoor dining. However, this should not be taken as an endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 dashboard. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
