GoodFunk Loop & West Town

GoodFunk in candlelight
We put the fun in funk.

Natural wine bar & cafe with piquettes, pet nats, co-ferments, clarets & pintxos. GoodFunk is located in two Chicago neighborhoods: West Town & The Loop. 

GoodFunk showcases the best of the natural wine world by highlighting winemakers from across the globe, not just traditional winemaking regions. Paired with equally funky, rustic food, GoodFunk proves wine can be affordable, quirky and most importantly fun.
The winemakers we feature may be a little crazy, but they maintain their vineyards with precision and give a truthful representation of the land they farm while also assuming higher risks by not using herbicides, pesticides, and additives. They are small production, limited allocation producers and our list rotates frequently to give you something new and fun each time you come in, offered in flights, by the bottle and by-the-glass.
We love the ultra-small production wines and rotate our list frequently to give you something new and fun to try each time you come in, offered in flights, by the bottle and by-the-glass.  
Our brand new menu showcase pintxos, a choice of conservas from Spain, a chef-curated meat and cheese board, as well as elevated bar dishes like Dolce Piccante Flatbread, GoodFunk’s unique twist on a pepperoni” pizza. Led by Bonhomme Hospitality Group’s Executive Chef Marcos Campos, GoodFunk’s dishes are designed to complement our wines, featuring ingredients with pickling, smoking and curing for that extra funk. 


Concepted and designed by Maison Bonhomme, GoodFunk West Town’s interiors are inspired by the charm of Art Deco, bringing the classic neighborhood bar into the contemporary with a touch of artistry and panache. 
The main bar was created by combining a tiled front counter from Paris (circa 1920) with a brass bar counter and multi-tiered brass shelves fabricated by Chicago’s Wayward Machine Co. Twenty restored cast iron “teardrop” Chicago streetlights were flipped upside down and hung throughout the cozy space. Finally, plush velvet sofas in jade complement custom teak bar stools designed by Maison Bonhomme and made in Nicaragua. 


GoodFunk is located in the historic six-story Great Lakes Building, which was originally built in 1912 as a mill and is the first building with green space along the Chicago River. As anyone who has taken the essential Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise can tell you, prior to its construction, this was the site of a temporary structure erected for the 1860 Republican National Convention, when Abraham Lincoln accepted the Republican nomination for President.
Concepted and designed by Maison Bonhomme, GoodFunk’s Loop location brings together the contemporary sensibility and inviting nature of a neighborhood wine bar with the artful and sophisticated aura of 1930s café society in Europe and America. Inside the cozy space, centerpieces include champagne-hued velvet bar seats, custom wall coverings by renowned artist Erik DeBat depicting scenes from Old-World cafés and a stunning 16-seat cosmopolitan quartzite bar with matching communal tables nearby. Behind the bar, brass-and-ash wood wine displays crafted by local metal fabricators Wayward Machine Co. offer a preview of the conservas GoodFunk offers as well as bottles of natural wine, their signature whimsical labels adding to the eye candy.
