The Taste Oasis is a new, air conditioned lounge in Butler Field offering tasty bites, cold water, a private bar, executive washrooms, music and more. If you’ve previously enjoyed the Celebrity Chef du Jour experience (not happening in 2018), give this new offering a try. Day passes for this exclusive area are $50.

Taste Oasis will be open throughout normal Taste of Chicago festival hours, but it’s particularly a great spot to hang out before and after the Petrillo Music Shell concerts. (While you may be able to hear the concerts, you won’t be able to see them.) Food samples will be served Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from 3 to 6pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 5pm. Children 2 years and under will be admitted at no charge; one child per adult.
