A bar and grill is one of life's most classic combinations, ranked among peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, and beer helmets and indignity. Indulge in a refined pairing with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of food and drinks at Blue Bayou Bar & Grill in Wrigleyville.

Boasting a mouthwatering menu of bayou-inspired cuisine and a full bar serving cocktails, drafts, and bottled beer, Blue Bayou dishes out food and fun in a Mardi Gras–themed atmosphere. Start off with a pre-party plate of peel-and-eat shrimp ($12) or crab cakes ($10) before moving on to en-sandwiched delights with a goat-cheese burger ($11) or veggie wrap ($10). Opt for a New Orleans classic, and you'll find an inviting plate of chicken, shrimp, or crawfish étouffée ($14), dressed Creole-style and ready for scarfing, while a side of dirty rice ($3) entertains your mouth with off-color jokes about its mother-in-law. Aside from adding spice to the diet, Blue Bayou spicies up the whole dining experience, featuring live music on weekends and Wednesdays, a dozen beers on draft, and even more brews safely encased behind glass.


Blue Bayou Bar & Grill has been featured on Centerstage Chicago. Nearly 120 Yelpers give the business an average of three stars.

  • Won’t be making it to New Orleans this year? Blue Bayou happens to be the next best thing. – Michelle Burton, Centerstage Chicago
  • I've been here both to drink on a weekend night and enjoy brunch on a weekend morning (okay, more like early afternoon) and no matter when I come I always enjoy myself. – Stacy C., Yelp

Blue Bayou Bar & Grill

Mardi Gras lasts all year at Blue Bayou Bar & Grill. Strings of beads dangle everywhere, from the wooden rafters of the ceiling to the awning of the full bar. Live music performances fill the air with sounds from jazz and brass to rock. Perched atop red barstools, patrons toast Louisiana sports teams with sazeracs, hurricanes, and other classic Big Easy drinks. And servers with necks looped in yet more beads fuel festivities with jambalaya, alligator sausage, crawfish etouffée, and other meals with Cajun spice. Away from the action, on the quieter outdoor patio, diners can also dig into desserts such as bananas foster crowned with whipped cream and cinnamon-tabasco pecans.
