Lush Wine and Spirits, the Chicago-based neighborhood wine shop and wine bar, will open at 2022 Central St. this spring.

Lush Evanston will offer customers a fusion of wine shop and wine bar. Artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, small and large plates and other bites will accompany casual sipping.  Lush began out of owner Mitch Einhorn’s frustration with wine selection between big box stores and grocery shelves, and he says he looks forward to providing a convenient branch for those north of Chicago. Lush Evanston will also have the capability to customize private events at the shop and hold education courses, corporate outings and more.
