    Service wasn't the greatest. Small.

    Hey Elixir Lounge, you should join Freebie! It’s pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!

    The cocktails are good, but the long wait due to understaffing takes away from the experience.

    The raspberry bust is amazing! And Keith is the best bartender. ❤

    Adam Neidlinger · August 9, 2014
  • Patrick L.

    Great cocktails, but be careful, they're strong. Ask what house infusions they have, they're always great!

    A welcome cocktail oasis for those in search of a hand-crafted drink in an understated but still chic interior. Read more

    Super low-key spot on a Sunday night. If you're looking for boozy, go for the Vesper.

    Ken Moorhead · November 13, 2012
  • Mykie L.

    Try the strawberry basil lemonade and the Moscow/Michigan mule. Say hi to the friendly and best bartenders on halsted.

    Mykie Lim · July 22, 2012
  • Fonso M.

    Slow service , maybe they need to hire more staff for a drink that takes 20 minutes to make or to cash out?

    Fonso M · May 10, 2012

    Relaxed atmosphere & well mixed drinks. Come here to linger. Also, restroom is beautiful.

  • Time Out Chicago

    A well-made cocktail was a hard thing to find in Boystown. Thankfully there’s Elixir, which not only shakes mean drinks, but also keeps the crowd in control and the music somewhat low. Read more

    Time Out Chicago · April 17, 2012
  • Time Out Chicago

    The clientele is mixed in age but not in gender, and everyone is on their best behavior, which makes it an altogether more sophisticated and adult experience than Elixir's next-door sister, Hydrate. Read more

    If you like ginger, you have to try the Red Dynasty!

    Apple crisp martini is like an apple pie in a glass! So good!

    Be prepared to be poured into a cab

    Try the smoked margarita. Also, call me a size queen, but I love the big ice cubes.

    Austin Duus · October 17, 2011
  • Paul M.

    Way too expensive...nice try at attempting a New York atmosphere...won't be returning.

    Paul Musial · October 2, 2011
