Finally. Sidewalk cafe season is here in Chicago.

This year on March 1, the city began allowing restaurants and bars to set up seating on the sidewalks for al fresco dining and drinking.

In June, a city council committee moved to allow businesses to keep the cafes year-round.

Here’s a map and list of all Chicago restaurants and bars that have sidewalk cafe permits for 2018.

As of April 27, there were 802 businesses with sidewalk permits.

The map will be updated daily, so check back often to see if your favorite neighborhood restaurant has a permit for sidewalk dining. Please confirm with the venue that outdoor seating is set up.
