Free Thursday Wine Tastings in Chicago’s Premier Seafood Spot!

Seafood enthusiasts have long been drawn to the irresistible allure of Lure Fishbar, a renowned restaurant known for its fresh fish selections, raw bar offerings, and world-class sushi program. However, for the next several Thursdays, the spotlight will shift from the briny depths to the rich and aromatic world of wine.

Lure Fishbar is set to host a series of FREE Pop-Up Wine Bar Tastings in their chic lounge, creating a haven for wine lovers every Thursday from 5 to 6:30 pm. The tastings promise to showcase a selection of aromatized, earthy, and perfectly balanced wines, providing a delightful departure from the seafood-centric norm of the restaurant.


This Thursday’s event will be a celebration of the Beaujolais Nouveau release, featuring the wines of Terres Dorees. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample the Nouveau and two cru Beaujolais, immersing themselves in the nuanced flavors and rich traditions of this renowned wine region.

The revelry doesn’t end there. In the following weeks, Lure Fishbar will transport patrons to different corners of the globe, celebrating the world of wine:

  • November 30: Warm up in South Africa
  • December 7: Return to Ribera with the wines of Emilio Mora

After each tasting, the spotlight wines will be available for purchase throughout the weekend, allowing guests to continue their vinous journey at their leisure.

For those unable to make it to the wine tastings but still enticed by the luxurious yacht-like interior of Lure Fishbar, a special treat awaits. The restaurant is offering a Thanksgiving celebration with a curated pre-fixed menu. Appetizer options include:


-Squash Soup topped with beautifully toasted pumpkin seeds & creme fraiche

-Chicories & Roasted Pear Salad packed with maple vinaigrette, toasted walnuts, endive, & stilton bleu


The perfect accompaniment? Perhaps a glass of their refreshing vino to complement the holiday feast.

Whether you’re a seafood aficionado or a wine enthusiast, Lure Fishbar invites you to savor the best of both worlds. Indulge in the finest seafood and explore a world of exceptional wines in the heart of the city.


Make your Thursdays memorable at Lure Fishbar, where the oceans meet thew vineyards, and every sip tells a story.
