Bin 36, A New Take On An Old Favorite, Opens Tonight in the West Loop

After closing in December, wine bar reopens in new space.

Ashok Selvam is the editor of Eater Chicago and a native Chicagoan armed with more than two decades of award-winning journalism. Now covering the world of restaurants and food, his nut graphs are super nutty.

Tonight, Bin 36 embarks on the next chapter for the revered wine bar. The reimagined bar/restaurants opens in its new West Loop spot inside the former Province Restaurant.

Bin 36 ended at 15-year run at Marina City after closing in December. Though the logo remains the same, new owner Enoch Shully has helped design a space to take Bin 36 in a new direction.

Dark woods accent the dining areas, with red drapes hanging from the ceiling to divide the space. Patrons can grab one of the eight seats at the bar, and imbibe on one of the special wine cocktails. The walls are decorated with wine-centric art. Think grapes and wine glasses. There's more of a focus on food in this iteration of Bin, and the space aims to accommodate large groups and dates with leather booth seating. Diners will eat their dishes on wooden tables while in a low-lit space.

Bin 36 opens at 5 p.m. tonight. After tonight, they'll be open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
