Located in the Albany Park neighborhood, a block north of the Kedzie Brown Line station, Bokeh opened in October of 2019. The owner and bartender, Richard Weber, is a 20 year veteran in the hospitality industry working all aspects of the front and back of the house. Bokeh is an homage to his lifelong love of photography and Bokeh (pronounced bo-kay) refers to the blurred background in a photograph that allows you to focus on the subject - a concept he felt leant itself well to a dreamy little cocktail bar.
We are focused on serving seasonal cocktails and late night small plates and bar snacks with rotating beer and wine in an intimate and sophisticated space with attentive and friendly guest service, featuring DJs and rotating art shows along with a first and “second chance” happy hour both 5-6pm and 11pm-midnight Sun-Thurs. We are perfect for a date night, a chill evening with a couple of friends, a meeting with a few work buddies, or just a spot to say hi to your favorite bartenders and grab a bite and cocktail. We were proud to be nominated for Best Bar in the 2022 Jean Banchet Awards.
