All I have to say is WOW! This is everything I have been looking for in a bar! I was taken care of from the moment I walked through the door. It wasn't the typical nightclub with one demographic of people listening to one type of music. They would be playing John Mellencamp then follow it up with a techno song followed by Will Smith. The crowd was very diverse and mature. Just a big group of people out looking to enjoy themselves (with no stupid stuff going on). The Manager is AWESOME! He found out it was my friend's birth day and gave him a free shot. I feel like I'm rambling now, I just wanted to show my appreciation to Spoon for making last Friday ROCK! Thanks

Pros: Great-Service-Great Music-Good Looking People

Cons: Got Real Crowded After Midnight

My buddy told me to go online and check out the pictures of this bar he wanted to go to that night. So I went to the address he emailed (sorry I don??t remember what it was) and this place looked pretty cool. I ended up going and had the best time of my life. I usually never write reviews but if I would not have gone out that Friday I would have never met my girlfriend Nicole. Happy Anniversary Sweety!

Had a birthday party here last Friday and it was awesome! We had the entire upstiars loft area to ourselves from 9-12. We met Tlyer the manger who could not have been funnier(guy w mustache). My friends were hesitant at first about having it at Spoon because it usually gets so packed. We had plenty of room up there to do whatever we wanted. Usually bars will charge a fee upfront for the party room space, but not here. We would be crazy not to have all our parties at Spoon.

Pros: Fantastic Party Room

Cons: Can get crowded the later it gets

.

This bar has a trendy crowd and often gets packed on the weekends. They have very few tables and the back bar area is incredibly dark. Usually you don't notice that late night but if you ever come in here sober its hard to see!

I was recommended Spoon by a friend of mine who had a party there. It more than lived up to our expectations. We had 2 personal bartenders solely for our party! Music was great, stiff drinks and freindly staff. What a memorable experince, would recommend to anyone looking for a private party room.

I threw a birthday party here and it was the biggest mistake ever. I had five friends verbal/sexually assaulted by the bouncer with the mohawk from tinley park at the bar the night of my party. When a complain with the manager was made the manager responsed with "what do you want me to do." This is not appropriate at all, nor is it a response that a manager should provide. I brought over 30 people that night, and am in shock at how they were treated. All of them complained about being asked to pay extra for certain bottle beers, even though the package I had included all bottle beers. I am highly disappointed and will never be returning.

When my friends and I were invited to a party at Spoon last weekend, we did not know what to expect. It had been over a year since our last time there, and I have to say : I was pleasantly suprised. The crowd was attractive, the drinks were strong, and the staff were extremely hospitable. I would definately reccommend this upbeat lounge to anyone in search of a good time! I will be the first one in line when they open the outdoor patio this summer. A+

Sat afternoon I went to the best party in Old Town. My friends and I were hanging out at the Old Town Art Fest and walked by a kick butt party. We deceided to check it out and the next thing I knew it was dark. The patio was decorated in a luau theme and they had pitchers of vodka lemonades and mojitos. We just sat at a table and the next thing we knew we had lots of new friends and even tossed a few games of Bago. As always I had a blast at Spoon.

I planned my friends birthday party at Spoon a few saturdays ago and had a awesome time. We had the upstiars to ourselves until midnight so we were able to catch up with friends and enjoy the excellent DJ. The service from the whole staff and the bartenders upstairs was great. Spoon has a really nice crowd and a fun atmoshere. You should check it out!!!

My friends and I walked up at 1:30am on a sat without a single person in line or in the bar. The doorman wouldn't let any of us in unless we paid a measly $5.00. The pathetic attempt at a cover charge would have been more tolerable if they made it $10 or $15 dollars since Spoon is no where near a bar that actually has a following or any clout in Chicago nightlife. After being happily admitted into clubs like Reserve and Rino on the same night for no charge at all, our "neighborhood" bar obviously had a case of a big ego that was completely undeserved. I'll never go back and neither should you.

Pros: None

Cons: Pretensious, Rude, Empty

Spoon is a perfect blend of a trendy lounge and a neighborhood bar. Some of the people there are very dressed up while others are wearing jeans and T-Shirts. Its unpretentious and nice at the same time. I wish there were more bars in Chicago with Spoon's atmosphere without the attitude.

The bar does tend to usually have a line, but I would rather go to a place that people want to go to instead of a dead bar on a saturday night.

I have been to Spoon many times and haven't had any problems with the service or staff.

I give this bar my full endorsement.

Pros: good food, good atsmosphere, good music

Cons: poor service

Whoever hires the people working in Spoon needs to get a clue. The staff is inconsiderate and rude. With all the other great places to eat and drink in Old Town, this one is best avoided.

The food was okay the drinks were good, but the service was horrible. Definetely would not go back ever. The staff needs to realize that they are there to make this a pleasurable visit not a nightmare. Went with friends to celebrate B-Day and was shocke at how rude and inconsiderate the staff was.

Pros: martinis, parking

Cons: Staff, Staff, Staff

This place needs to educate its staff to the fact that the customer is not an inconvenience, but their sole purpose for existing. A friend and I went on a Wednesday evening which means we should have been treated like royalty since the place was not crowded, but we weren't. The doorman was blaise at best, the host staff must be completely blind since they acted as though they didn't see us and the waitress was just an airhead. I will never go back again.

Went to Spoon for Sunday brunch. The waitress was very friendly, the food was very tasty (try the breakfast burrito), good portions, great prices. I recommend it highly.

Great menu, fantastic service, and a very friendly crowd. You must try their Mango martini. My girlfriend loved it so I had to add that. We sat outside on the patio and had a great time. We will definitely be back!

This place is really overrated. It's always too packed...always too young...and there is always a line. Save your time, go somewhere a little less trendy.
