    Every time I come here, I have a great experience. Staff is wonderful whether you are having one drink or a bottle.

    I love this place for a good champaign cocktail. My favorite is the Bellini Coupette. The peach froth on top is like nothing I've ever had before. 🍾

    A Chicago must! Champagne options are endless and desserts are inventive and delicious

    Pricey but good atmosphere and amazing service. Get the garlic frites with truffle butter. So good and perfect for two people paired obviously with champagne.

    Pops for Champagne’s La Vie en Rose cocktail, a sweet drink with Champagne, elderflower liqueur, bitters and sugar, may inspire thoughts of running away to travel the world. Read more

    Waited 15 minutes to get noticed in an otherwise pretty empty room...mediocre drinks, aloof bartender. 30 mins to order and pay for 2 easy to make drinks. I get atmosphere, but this place has none :\

    Watershed bar downstairs has a large collection of Midwestern beers, liquor, and wine. Good atmosphere.

    Trendy place, can get crowded on weekends. Food is pretty good, but I'm sad that they removed the Fried chicken thighs from the menu and made it only available downstairs at the Watershed.

    They have many bottles of wine (mostly sparkling wine) and a handful of half-bottles. I definitely recommend the Black Tiger Shrimp & the Duck BLTs. I would recommend against the Tempura Cheese Curds.

    Excellent selection of champagne and sparkling wine. Bellini is off the charts! However, beware of mussels -- they aren't fresh

    Don't leave without ordering the Tempura Battered Cheese Curds. Salty, cheesy, and delicious.

    The downstairs lounge is super chill and a great place to bring a group! Feels like my parent's basement. If my parents were like, the hippest gay couple in Chicago.

    You will be hard pressed to find a larger selection of champagne

    The staff is very tall and they all have clear skin and they play a lounge version of "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

    Mike the bartender looks like Jesus and is a master mixologist with an encyclopedic knowledge of champagne. Ask him what's good from their list of list of small producers... He won't steer you wrong!

    The garlic frites with truffle butter are so good. I get them every time.

    This place is a mecca for herds of bachelorette parties. Which I'm willing to put up with to get that delicious Bellini aka elixir of life. Definitely worth the $13.

    For any celebrations, Pops for Champagne is the place to drink bubbly and celebrate. You can also order a glass of Bordeaux and sip it over the Torched Blueberry Marshmallow Ice Cream, our favorite.

    Overpriced champagne, but the apps and cocktails are really great (fried cheese curds, do it).

    Black Hills Gold and La Vie en Rose are tremendous! The Ahi Tartare beautiful presentation, tasted even more wonderful!! Love this place!

    Hungry? You MUST indulge in the Wisconsin Tempura Cheese Curds. They're buttery and rich (and pairs nicely with champagne, right?!).

    Ask Michael for a half bottle of Ruinart and a cheese plate. You won't be disappointed. Ruinart is the oldest champagne house in the France.

    Don't come here. The sunday night bartender is super rude. Wish I knew her name. Insulting your clientele does not result in a good tip btw.

    If you're under 40, dye your hair or have tattoos, the hostess won't let you in the door.

    Don't go here, terrible service from the moment you hit the door. Quartino across the street is a less expensive alternative with excellent service.

    Very one in here acts too pretentious the bar is not even very nice! If you're thinking about it don't go!

    Yes, this is a champagne wine bar however they have the best tempura covered cheese curds in the world. They're dusted with a foie gras powder that makes them perfectly salty. They're a must!

    Indulge in something by the glass that you normally would not have!

    Pops for Champagne knows bubbly and jazz, and after 24 years on a tree-lined Lakeview street, owners Tom and Linda Verhey decided to bring the nati.

    Live music available only on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, but the bubbly is available seven days a week.

    Probably the worst service I've ever experienced. Especially considering the $20 drinks... This is the most generous tip I left here.
  • christina leigh m.
    Top 10 places I've ever been to--ever. Great atmosphere, trendy music & the current season's MBFW runway shows playing on all screens--a fashionista's haven. Amazing for a date or girls' night out. $$

    Stay away from the oysters. I think they come out of a jar. They smell really fishy and the mignonette is pre-applied.

    Don't order the Jinjitsu. There are plenty good drinks to try. The Jinjitsu tastes like a urinal cake.

    This spot has over 100 champagne selections and lovely live music- try the Laurent-Perrier Demi-Sec for a sweet treat.

    Pops offers a well-edited selection of cheeses that include classics (rich Explorateur) & a couple of surprises (blueberry-studded Stilton), served w/ raspberry-red pepper jam & toasted hazelnuts. Read more

    The champagne cocktails are spectacular. Inside seating is beautiful and the service level. Is unparallelled.

    While you cant go wrong with the bubbly, I recommend trying the steamed mussels - delicious! And, dont miss the grilled clams - they're served over smoked wood chips.
