Our Story

Soulful. Artistic. Memorable.

12 Bar and Lounge is the more casual side to Edge. Using the same great Farms and local suppliers, we have yet again artfully elevated the ingredients to create a casual dining experience. And there is no better place than the 12 Bar – both our inside and rooftop Lounge!

With the help and knowledge of Chef Jessica Stevenor a new menu has come to life that is memorable, soulful, and artistic. While 12 Bar has been known for a changing menu, we recognize that many of our customers return to find their favorites on the menu - so we are going to stick to a consistent menu for the foreseeable future. We plan to add specials when Chef Jessica is inspired by seasonal ingredients to create a fun and unique dish.

12 Bar is also known for its Craft cocktails using homemade syrups and mixes. We are also keeping all your favorites and transitioning in a few new seasonal cocktails to compliment the ones you have grown to love!

We feature six beers on tap! We will continue to rotate these to bring our customers new craft beers, but as your favorites emerge, we will continue to keep them on tap.

We offer the most extensive Whiskey, Bourbon, Tequila and Scotch selections in all of Illinois- enjoy them by the glass or ask for a custom flight - our Bartenders will be sure to make a memorable flight for you!

At 12 Bar we remain committed to our local musicians! From Songs & Stories, hosted by Michael Allen on the First Wednesday of every month to weekend music on most Friday and Saturday nights from May - November you will be sure to find some new artists and songs to love.


A word on inflation - We are committed to trying to keep our price points affordable for all. Inflation is real. We have raised all of our employees' pay to ensure they have a living wage. Our food and liquor prices are on the rise. We are doing our best to source from local suppliers that provide us competitive prices and create an artfully elevated menu with you and your budget in mind. We know inflation is hitting us all and despite all of these business challenges we face, we are going to begin offering regular special events on Tuesday - Friday to help stretch your budget:

  • Wednesday - $7 glasses of house wine
  • Thursday - Select $8 specialty cocktails
  • Friday - Happy Hour from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. - $5 Draft Beers | $7 Titos | Select ½ priced Appetizers
