The Rat Pack rules this Rush Street bar, a happening see-and-be-seen scene for the 35-plus set. – The Scene
Pictures of Frank, Sammy and the boys adorn the deep-red walls in this long-time Gold Coast establishment that still attracts a full house every night of the week. It's classy, but not uptight, and there's never a cover, even after 9pm when the live music gets going. Small circular tables line the bar, and there's a cluster by the front windows where you can hear the music, but not see it. Get there early if you want a seat--it's first come, first served.
Jilly's attracts a steady flow of local personalities--baseball players, news anchors--and has been known as an occasional stop for visiting celebs. There aren't drink specials, but the cocktail selection is a draw on its own: champagne, specialty martinis (frothy mint chocolate chip, for example), and a distinguished menu of cognacs and specialty whiskeys.
