Elevate your dive.
No Vacancy is an elevated dive bar (we get it—it’s an oxy, ya moron) in Chicago’s prominent River North neighborhood. Why the name? Simple. It quite literally means, “No Room.” For what you may ask? Even simpler: for any BULLSH*T. NV is a place where everyone is welcome, a space developed where every guest can have fun. You remember what this is don’t ya?
For the food NV features an elevated American bar fare menu, which is simply back to basics with superior stuff! We ain’t using your run of the mill ingredients, and we sure as heck don’t need 25 aiolis in the joint to blow your skirt up. Much of the menu is designed to be shared, but if “Greed” is your sin no probs. Here and there the Chef may decide to throw in styles of cuisine from other areas around the globe; we do what we want around here.
Are we a sports bar? Hell no, but we still gotcha covered.
Are we a wine bar? Absolutely not! You’ll find no somms working here trying to bore ya to death with the latest and greatest about soils & such, but you’ll sure find them bellied up at the bar to taste some of the finest wines the world has seen out of our private collection with shifting offerings spanning multiple centuries while Karen sits alongside pondering whether or not it’s safe to complain about her $12 Sparkling Rose that has too many bubbles for her tastes.
Are we a fancy, schmancy cocktail bar where every cocktail is smoked or set ablaze? No chance, but we still threw some cuties on the menu for you TikTok’rs.
The beer system is badass and sure to make any Snapchatters horny—come see for yourself. At the end of the day it’s still just beer, but we try to have every style for ya.
Everyone is welcome at NV. You wanna be boujee you’re in the right place; you wanna be anything else you are too. Be you. Welcome home!
