Takoi is a cozy Thai-inspired joint in Corktown. They serve up delicious shareables and craft cocktails that are almost too pretty to drink.
Takoi is a hot commodity, so the earlier you arrive for dinner, the better. If you need to wait for a table, don’t worry, you can hang out in the Green Room or on the patio.
On Wednesdays Takoi has a live DJ from 5-9 p.m. for happy hour. On Fridays and Saturdays there’s a live DJ from 6 p.m.-midnight. Sip a cocktail and listen to the music – your table will be ready in no time!
Parking is available on Michigan Avenue and it’s free – bonus.
