Chicago’s eclectic neighborhoods are packed with pilgrimage-worthy restaurants and cafes — and tons of them are BYOB. You can bring your own booze to all sorts of Chicago spots, from hole-in-the-wall taco joints to Argentinian steakhouses. So grab your favorite bottle of red or a six-pack of local beer, and head to one of these top BYOB spots.

Tango Sur

Tango Sur

Local favorite Tango Sur, a steakhouse and Latin American restaurant, is big on portions and small on price. The semi-upscale spot is the ultimate date night destination, with cozy candlelight and a lively atmosphere. Try with the traditional parrilla — a huge helping of grilled meats, plus a salad and potatoes. Bonus: the BYOB spot doesn’t charge a corkage fee, so grab a bottle on your way over. 3763 N. Southport Ave., Lakeview

Pizza Art Café

A former coffee house, Pizza Art Café added a wood-fired brick oven and now serves pizza, salads, and even roasted octopus. The rustic, loft-like setting features funky local art on the walls and a few cozy booths in the back. Bring something to drink (a Chianti maybe?) to enjoy with your perfectly charred pizza. 4658 N. Rockwell St., Lincoln Square

Han 202

Han 202 is known for their outstanding (and affordable) four-course prix-fixe menu.

The easy decision: bringing our own booze, since there’s no corkage fee. 605 W. 31st St., Bridgeport 

Smoque BBQ

Smoque BBQ

Barbecue and beer are a no brainer, especially when it’s bring your own beer. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood off the beaten path, Smoque BBQ is all about smoked meats.

Damen Ave. in Bucktown and 1700 S. Michigan Ave. in South Loop

90 Miles Cuban Cafe

90 Miles Cuban Cafe Logan Square
