About

The Bar

CSCB Cocktails are tropical meets botanical with a hit of color wherever we can work it in. We like making drinks that are fun, fresh and easy to enjoy from mezcal coladas to ginger lychee shots.

The Food

CSCB serves up delicious food in a casual & stylish atmosphere. Founded in nostalgia we cook from the memories we’ve built over the years enjoying American-Chinese food with our families and friends. Furthermore we are constant appreciation for the long history Chinese food has had on this planet as well as the place it has carved out as an American staple. We hope to extend the warmth of those memories to our guests and keep learning in the process.

The People

Jason Vincent, Ben Lustbader and Josh Perlman opened CSCB’s sister restaurant Giant in 2016 in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. Through that success and teamwork they have come together to open their second endeavor Chef’s Special Cocktail Bar along with three new partners: Aaron Kabot, Tom Scodari and Chase Bracamontes, all of whom worked together at Giant years prior.  The group hopes that whatever success they build will continue to give a platform to other talented members of their team in the future.

The Space

We are first come, first served in a generous space. There are 60 seats inside, including a curvy J shaped bar that stands in the center and 30 seats on our side patio.

The space was designed by Erin Boone at Boone Interiors. The design melds old and new to create a space accrued in time. Nostalgia is expressed in the design details, articulating a transformative space honoring both Chicago tavern history and homestyle American Chinese cooking.
