No need to order a 3-course dinner at these spots. Where to go if you just want a good drink (or 2 or 3) and apps for a light/liquid dinner at the bar.
Gorgeous rooftop lounge with beautiful views of Lincoln Park, the zoo and lake. Love the mix and match menu by Paul Virant and farmers market cocktails by Erin Hayes. On hungrier days the seemingly unassuming burger is fantastic.
I like cocktails and snacks at the bar here or brunch. The eggs Benedict and beignets are to die for and there are plenty of healthy options too!
Delicious cocktails by acclaimed mixologist Michael Simon. Love Mark Steuer's crusty bottom cornbread and new take on low country boil with shrimp and rabbit. Great for groups looking to share.
I think I'll come back for the wonderful wine selection hand-picked by Alpana and the gorgeous, addictive desserts by Julia Fitting. The wine cellar downstairs is a great space for bigger parties and events up to 100.
Great for putting together an eclectic meal of creative sharable bites like calamari with green hummus and venison tartare. Nice weekend brunch and during the warmer months, a fun patio with good tunes.
Amazing escargot and sweetbreads - together! Perfect for a cozy weeknight, Friday cocktails or nightcap. Wine list is varied and changes often. Plenty of bourbon and great sazeracs too. Ask for Christopher!
Try the house-baked buttery bread you won't regret it! Grab a seat at the bar and ask for a flaming pisco sour - a secret specialty off the menu.
