Saturday, September 30

Our first cooking class of the season takes place at 11 a.m. at our downtown location. The event includes a demonstration of three signature recipes, including unlimited food and wine. You’ll also receive a free gift from us! You must pre-pay to reserve your spot. Seats are limited, so call now! Cost is $60, not including tax or gratuity.


Sunday, October 1

It’s time to get in fall style! Enjoy our seasonal fashion event, which features lunch and a fashion show, raffles, and even a special cocktail – the ValTini! Cost is $40, inclusive of tax and tip. Please make reservations by calling Veni Vidi Val at 708-354-3686.


Thursdays at Sol y Nieve

Come downtown Thursday nights for mood music with dinner. It’s complimentary – one of the many ways we upgrade your dining experience here at Emilio’s Tapas. The show starts at 7 p.m.


Weekly at both locations

Did you know that when you come into either of our locations on any given Sunday, you can get a FREE bottle of red or white Spanish wine just for ordering paella for at least two people? It’s true! We’ll choose the wine for you, and we’ll make it a good one! Please note: This offer is limited to one bottle per table, and is not to be combined with other promotions.


You choose the time and place

Fall is pretty much here, and that means holiday parties are not so far away. Are you ready? Give your next shindig some international flair with Spanish tapas, which are perfect for get-togethers because they go so well with festive drinks, and because they’re bite-size. People can try many different tapas at a time. Impress with fresh, flavorful gourmet foods at your upcoming event! For more information, or to book with us, contact haley@emiliostapas.com.
