  • The Wall Street Journal

    This subterranean cocktail lounge turns out imaginative elixirs. Open until 4 a.m. on Saturdays, it's one of the few options for late-night fare like bacon-wrapped pork belly and fried avocados. Read more

    Great cocktails and a Jazz club next door. It's a win win.

  • Chandler C.

    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.

    Chandler Collins · February 22, 2014
  • Ross S.

    if you're only going for a drink the bar only has 8 seats!

    Ross Schendel · January 25, 2014

    Taormina cocktail is delicious, but strong.

    Kristina Wang · October 23, 2013
  • Tom F.

    The drinks are outstanding. Have a Manhattan!

    Tom Fox · September 20, 2013
  • Stephanie M.

    Drinks are good and unique. I can't say the same for the food. It lacked flavor and I wouldn't eat there again.

    Stephanie Markadonatos · September 19, 2013
  • Matt A.

    Drinks are killer

    Matt Alter · August 3, 2013

    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.

    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.

    Mike Allen · March 24, 2013
  • Jon D.

    Try the Monk, the old man and the sea cocktail. Can't really go wrong on the food. Everything rocks.

    Jon Davis · March 20, 2013
  • Time Out Chicago

    The O’Leary’s Cow, a bitter mix of Old Weller 107 bourbon, Campari, Fernet and coffee liqueur with a rinse of peaty Laphroaig, is—like most drinks here—perfectly complex. Read more

    Time Out Chicago · March 6, 2013
  • Jake S.

    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.

    Jake Smith · February 6, 2013
  • Shannon H.

    Try "The old man monk and the sea"

    Shannon Heath · February 1, 2013
  • Peter B.

    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.

    Peter Becker · January 20, 2013
  • Mary Kay H.

    Eater says try the Red Bush ($13), made with rooibos infused Scotch "rocks", Cointreau, cinnamon syrup, and fresh lemon sour.

    Mary Kay Hardcastle · January 17, 2013

  • Renaissance Hotels

    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.

    Renaissance Hotels · August 23, 2012
  • Robert R.

  • Tyler M.

    The Old-Old Fashion is really bad, the Manhattan and Double Agent are both good.

    Tyler McPheeters · January 21, 2012
  • Chicago magazine

    Must-try cocktail: Eve's Answer. Reposado tequila, mezcal mist, raisin syrup, cider, and cinnamon. It makes margaritas jealous.

    Chicago magazine · January 16, 2012
  • Leyla A.

    Try an old school classic or one of their very own creations

    Leyla Arsan · November 29, 2011
  • Tammy

    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!

    Tammy · November 16, 2011
  • Bruce P.

    One of my favorite places, when I first moved back to the city.

    Bruce Paul · October 16, 2011

  • Kamilah M.

    Always sit at the bar if it is an option, if not request cocktails are prepared table side!

    Kamilah M · October 3, 2011
  • Morgan S.

    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.

    Morgan S · October 1, 2011
  • Adam S.

    Jaegger is for Freshmen. Try a chilled shot of locally-made 70 Proof hum, The World's Most Unique Rum.

    Adam Seger · September 9, 2011
  • Jay R.

    There is a new menu that came out this week. You have to try the duck sausage.
