Chicago
Food and Drink

This section features eating and drinking establishments likely to be of interest to steampunks. It includes tea houses, as well as bars and restaurants with steampunk, neo-Victorian, or retro-industrial decor. Some establishments are consciously designed with steampunk themes. With others, the connection may be more subtle or open to interpretation. We identified many of these places by searching review sites for mentions of "steampunk," and obviously that can be a subjective judgment. The gear icon indicates locations where the steampunk or fantasy elements are more obvious.
