Bub City - Chicago
It's the 1990s all over again with the resurrection of Bub City, a country-themed BBQ joint owned by Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises. This time around, LEYE chairman Rich Melman's children have updated the concept, which includes Three Dots and a Dash, an ambitious cocktail program and lower-level tiki lounge.
Regularly scheduled live country music is provided by partner venue Joe's Bar on Weed Street, but there is also live band karaoke featured in which is also country music focused. Daily specials also make Bub City a big draw for locals as well as visitors to Chicago.
For example, every Saturday and Sunday, a Southern brunch and bloody Mary bar are featured. Tuesdays highlight tacos. And every Sunday and Monday, Bub City offers a Chicago-style rib dinner.
There is a second location in Rosemont, minus Three Dots and a Dash.
