    It's the perfect date spot. Whether you go before dinner, instead of dinner, or after dinner, you won't be let down. I liked the Midnight Stinger.

    This isn’t a get up and mingle kind of joint, which makes it the perfect dark sexy lounge for romantic dates and quiet conversations about world domination. Try the pimento cheese toasts. Leggi tutto

    8 - Romantic, cool place. Did a good job making a large open place feel intimate. Drinks are super strong and tasty. Not great for large groups (long wait), but got right in with two!

    Nice and intimate atmosphere, great for a cocktail date! The cocktails with egg white are interesting, but I prefer the sweeter ones. The entrance is very hidden so you gotta be looking for it.

    Best cocktails in the city. Never had a bad drink here. Go on a week night or Sunday to avoid the crowd. Have some drinks then cross the street to Big Star and grab some tacos.

    Step inside the intimate space and peruse through an extensive handcrafted drink menu that includes vodka, tequila, rum, brandy and portable bitters creations. Try the Juliet & Romeo or the Sazerac.

    You feel like you're in a Tim Burton movie as you enter this beautifully absurd space with high top chairs and romantic lighting. Their egg white cocktails, for example the Oofta, are delicious.

    Hard place to find if you don't know about it. Great for dates or anyone who enjoy well made drinks. Dark, cozy, and intimate.

    Simply a must! Sophisticated, chic, and everything you want for a one of a kind night out. The most hidden of all the gems but the biggest reward if you find it!

    Walking through the curtains takes you into the world of Alice in Wonderland. Take it all in while sipping on a cocktail and seated a seat at one of the high backed chairs.

    Violet Hour exudes a 1920s speakeasy vibe. While the drinks are innovative, the bar remains old-school: Don’t be surprised if the bartender gives you a sideways look when you pull out your cell phone. Leggi tutto

    Low lighting, excellent cocktails and great music makes for an awesome date spot. On weekends, come early or be ready to wait to be seated!

    One of the highlights of my weekend in Chicago. Funny place, a surprisingly airy and large speakeasy with a great selection of (strong) cocktails. Approved! 🥃

    ~The Co-Conspirator~ unarguably strong, flawless, basically a pristine concoction of the highest order. As the plebeians say, it's the "most bang for your buck."

    Amazing cocktails all around. Get "the end of the earth" if you like Madeira and pineapple it is fantastic. Good atmosphere and even if there is a wait, the line moves fast

    Behind a nondescript door in Wicker Park, Violet Hour serves handcrafted drinks (try the Hush & Wonder, made of Matusalem rum, lime, and crème de violette).

    It's pristine (the carefully constructed cocktails are excellent), pretentious (you won’t find a sign on the door–just look for the long lines) and, ultimately, completely and unarguably gorgeous. Leggi tutto

    lose yourself in the blue curtains. this place has an energy that makes it something to behold once found in chicago. it is tasteful and classic with an edge of biggie rap.

    It's a little too dark to see the menu, but I really like the unique setup and their cocktails are delicious. Also, fiddling on your phone is forbidden here!

    Get any of their drinks with potable bitters. I am never disappointed! Ambiance is unmatched, modern spin on an old speakeasy. Excellent service and knowledgeable waitstaff.

    Here, the bar is a stage, and the tenders are the actors. High ceilings, giant mirrors, hell, even curtains to either side of the bar. Snag a Maloney Negroni, then watch the performance.

    They make great non alcoholic drinks here. They will try most anything on the menu, within reason. My favorite is their twist on a Pimms cup.

    The small plates are delicious, full of flavor, & help soak up the buzz from the amazing cocktails. It's dimly lit, & perfect for a discreet night out.

    On the menu under each spirit, each cocktail is listed shaken and refreshing to stirred and bold. I had the French Professor, it was epic

    Really amazing speakeasy. Line really starts to stack up at 7 on Saturday and moves really slow. Definitely don't try to come with a group larger than four

    The intimate atmosphere let's you focus on your private party and forget there are even other patrons. Cozy, trendy, and amazing cocktails.

    Modeled after early-19th-century English clubs and French salons, this lounge is complete with chandeliers and a fireplace. Floor-to-ceiling curtains frame the bartenders as if they were on a stage.

    $12 here buys you perhaps one of the best cocktails you've ever had. They take things so seriously, they have like a dozen different ice cubs for certain drink variations. Leggi tutto

    One of Chicago’s most highly regarded cocktail bars, and another Madia-Kahan venture, The Violet Hour was a runaway success. Here cocktails highlight spirits and play off established drinks.

    If there’s a single place in the city that signifies “cocktail bar,” it’s this Victorian-esque Wicker Park lounge. Order the First Snow cocktail: http://tmoutchi.us/13EV7jr

    It hasn't been on the menu in a while, but get a Duckhunter. Best drink by far. Tastes like the fall. Whiskey and nugmetgy goodness.

    Don't use your cell phone and if you are meeting a group - make sure you let the host know you are expecting add ons! Great cocktails... but a lot of rules!!

    I enjoyed my visit and had a great cocktail, but I wouldn't recommend going alone. They don't allow phones, the bartenders aren't chatty, and you're stuck to a seat.

    Great for a date. Expect to wait in line. The "Up Here Buddy" is not very good. Scarlet Ribbons is a great rum drink.
