Azul Mariscos General Info
Azul’s space distinguishes itself. There are tables set up along the water where customers can sip cocktails held in clay vessels made by youth enrolled in Project FIRE, a not for profit that helps youth heal from gun violence. The kits are making clay pots and cups for the drink with a portion of the drink’s sales donated back to the charity. The space offers multiple outdoor areas. Meanwhile, indoor dining restrictions brought by COVID-19 are terrifying to restaurant owners in Chicago. Many don’t know how they’ll survive when freezing temperatures keep diners from craving patio seating. Keeping that in mind, Azul’s management wants to the venue to become an all-season destination.
There are multiple levels inside, including a large rooftop bar. Management says it’s among the largest in Chicago and should open next week. Goose Island is primed for development if the controversial Lincoln Yards project gets off the ground. If Azul succeeds, they’ll be seen as neighborhood pioneers.
