Here are renderings for Barton G.’s Chicago location

There’s a new opening timeframe for Barton G., the Miami import that uses lavish props, like katanas, while serving customers food and drink with ridiculous names like “Dolla Dolla Bills Y’all!!!!.” Originally pegged for November, Barton G. should now open in February in River North inside the former Sullivan’s Steakhouse, according to a news release. It’s a 12,000-square-foot space on two floors at 415 N. Dearborn Street.

Barton G. also has locations in LA and Miami. Reps sent a few renderings to share as they introduce the restaurant to Chicago. Management expects customers to post food and beverage pictures on Instagram. It’s an abrupt turn from Sullivan’s steakhouse vibe to Barton G.’s “multi-sensory experience.”

They’ve hired Hirsch MPG Architecture+Planning as the local firm to help design the space, described as an homage to Chicago, while retaining some of its old elements. A release touts “high-end and unique materials” like white onyx fusion stone, teal green quartzite. The bartop for the 70-foot bar is made of Green Panda Marble.

There’s also no open kitchen, which is unusual for new restaurants. The news release said that staff needs all the space possible to assemble the props for the food.
