This New North Side Bar-Eatery Specializes in Daiquiris

On the menu are frozen drinks, chicken wings and flavored hookahs.

Daq Shack, a new business in the Rufus King neighborhood (4191 N. Green Bay Ave.), celebrates its grand opening on Oct. 20 from 4-10 p.m. The new spot is named for the daiquiris it serves — in 10 different flavors (pina colada to peach bellini). 

The space, a modern mix of curved-bar seating, bar-height pub tables and a mezzanine-level dining area, also serves appetizers, flatbreads, wings and entrees. Specific items on the menu include green bean fries, spinach-artichoke dip, birria flatbread, chicken wings served with a choice of sauce (buffalo, hot & honey, Jamaican jerk, among others), two salmon dishes, and blackened salmon and chicken Caesar salads ($6-$15).

Said Alderman Ashanti Hamilton of the opening: “The Daq Shack is an awesome addition to the Rufus King Neighborhood, offering a full menu and bar. These are small business owners who persevered through the pandemic to bring a dynamic business to the area, and I welcome them and wish them prosperity and success.”

The business also offers various flavored hookahs.
