American contemporary fine dining with a cocktail program that is unmatched! Hidden gem off the bustling Rush Street in Chicago's Gold Coast.
Awesome bartenders. The end.
Will is a mixology genius. So fun to sit by the bar! Pretty decor...A+ bar!
Amazing drinks, good conversation
They are not aware of the foursquare check in.
Chocolate mouse for dessert. Yum!!!
Great cocktails and a Jazz club next door. It's a win win.
The Old Man, the Monk, and the Sea was my favorite drink in the city. Now it's off the menu, and they don't have all the ingredients to make it. WAMP.
if you're only going for a drink the bar only has 8 seats!
Taormina cocktail is delicious, but strong.
The drinks are outstanding. Have a Manhattan!
Drinks are good and unique. I can't say the same for the food. It lacked flavor and I wouldn't eat there again.
Drinks are killer
"By Hook or by Crook" is phenomenal
As good as ever. Three years after my last tip, the joint is still rocking!
This place is incredible, can't speak highly enough. The mixologists were excellent and the drinks are top notch. Perfect late night setting in downtown Chicago.
They have a great punch service.
What to Order || The Old Man Monk and the Sea: Old Weller 107, Lustau dry oloroso, benedictine
You will have no problem bellying up to the bar at this modern restaurant and culinary cocktail lounge with an unmatched drink program, led by Cristiana DeLucca.
We had a blast with Sergio. Great place.
Try the Monk, the old man and the sea cocktail. Can't really go wrong on the food. Everything rocks.
If you're a fan of bourbons with rich, smoky flavor, O'Leary's Cow would be an excellent choice. Your mouth will thank you later.
Try "The old man monk and the sea"
Awesome cocktails. Great food. Pleasant staff. This place has it all. Try the smoky Tequila drink, hushpuppies, and duck breast. You will not be disappointed.
Eater says try the Red Bush ($13), made with rooibos infused Scotch "rocks", Cointreau, cinnamon syrup, and fresh lemon sour.
Very cool place! Delicious cocktails, delicious food! Give the beef tartare a try! Excellent service by Ryan. Will definitely come back!
best late night desserts
look for Ryan! Greattt waiter!!
One of the first and still one of the best cocktail bars in Chicago. Come here in the early evening for chief mixologist Cristiana DeLucca’s full attention and unbelievable, hand-crafted cocktails.
Try the FEW gin. Great local (Evanston) distillery.
Simply perfect manhattan
Charles is the consummate host. Charming, attentive and totally knows his shit.
The Old-Old Fashion is really bad, the Manhattan and Double Agent are both good.
Must-try cocktail: Eve's Answer. Reposado tequila, mezcal mist, raisin syrup, cider, and cinnamon. It makes margaritas jealous.
Try an old school classic or one of their very own creations
Tasty drinks! Escargot and mushroom lasagna are perfection. Beware of NY Strip entree... there's some sort of sauce/seasoning on there that tastes funky. I haven't found one person that likes it yet!
One of my favorite places, when I first moved back to the city.
This place is a must if you are in Chicago.
Always sit at the bar if it is an option, if not request cocktails are prepared table side!
The bar in this restaurant is top notch, but there are literally 8 seats. Bartenders are skilled, but not pretentious. A friendly place to step out of your cocktail comfort zone.
Jaegger is for Freshmen. Try a chilled shot of locally-made 70 Proof hum, The World's Most Unique Rum.
There is a new menu that came out this week. You have to try the duck sausage.
Try the 400lb monkey, great english styley ale
Try the Greystone
At this subterranean lounge within Le Passage nightclub, guests can opt to have their drinks prepared tableside, accompanied by a cocktail history lesson.
