MODERN SPANISH TAPAS


'ONE OF 15 BEST NEW RESTAURANTS IN THE MIDWEST' – CONDÉ NAST


Aventura began, like many seductive ideas, with a creative human and an experience. When restaurateur Sava Lelcaj bought the building you’re sitting in, out of pure fascination plus great timing, she immediately fell in love with the history, the patina, the personality of the space, but perhaps most significantly, with—a table.

She gathered her friends around that table, in the cavern-like basement of this building, and was immediately transported to another place. Old World, wine and cheese, music and conversation, candlelight… tapas.

That same table now sits in the middle of Aventura restaurant,
a continuing symbol of Sava and her team’s coming together over the love of authentic Spanish cuisine and culture; tapas, paella, cocas, vino, gin tonics. Literally carved from the bones of the original space (b. 1872) and utilizing classic Spanish design elements paired with works by local artists, the dining room and bar are intentionally intertwined, reiterating the deeply social experience of traditional Catalan and Valencian-style tapas bars.

We invite you to eat, drink, laugh and linger here; to enjoy the company of those you love as well as those you don’t yet know. 

Aventura is a love affair, a Cupid’s arrow from us to you.
