Welcome To Storyville
Located on Clark Street in bustling River North, Storyville is a New Orleans-inspired restaurant and cocktail bar boasting French quarter drinks, small bites, and vibrant ambiance. Storyville features three primary dining areas: the main dining room that gives a rustic and majestic new Orleans feel with empire chandeliers; a patio with traditional New Orleans metalwork; and a speakeasy-style basement lounge, Lulu’s, with original Storyville décor.
Storyville adds an unexpected twist to classic Cajun cuisine. Our menu will transport you from the Chicago River to the banks of the Mississippi Delta.
Featured in TIME, Chicago Food Magazine, Thrillist, and many others, Storyville’s menu does not disappoint. Andouille sausage sizzles, gumbo bubbles in the pot, and the aroma of bananas caramelizing over rich vanilla ice cream fill the room, creating an atmosphere that can only be found at Storyville Chicago.
The Storyville neighborhood in New Orleans was home to Lulu White, one of the most notorious and financially successful madams in the late 19th century. Our basement speakeasy continues her enduring legacy right here in River North.
Step into Lulu’s Chambre Privée late-night lounge and take in the decadent decor and live cabaret performances. Lulu’s menu features a unique “Blue Book” cocktail menu, perfect for your night out. Lulu’s Chambre Privée is open Thursdays 11 PM-CLOSE | Fridays and Saturdays 7 PM-CLOSE
