The Violet Hour does not accept reservations, we operate on a first come first serve basis. If there is a wait upon your arrival, our door host will take your name and cell phone number then call when seating becomes available.
Lines out the door even as early as 8PM. Cocktails are well done and strong.
The punch bowl is a great way to start the evening off with a large group of friends.
I love the variety of cocktails there are! Largest menu I've seen in awhile. I liked the gin based drinks :)
Fancy cocktails and sophisticated ambiance if you feel like feeling sophisticated... Or impressing a date in this low-lit speakeasy.
Awesome atmosphere, killer drinks, a must visit while in Chicago!
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.
Pro tip: keep an eye out for the periodic super-informative, super-enjoyable master classes.
Moscow nuke, pimms cup, all cocktails.
Cocktail are off the hook!!!
We so fancy. Usually a line.
Had the Sunday Best. One of the best cocktails I've ever tasted - incredible. Ambience is dark and private but classy
Best cocktails I've ever had. Try the Tommy Gun, it's sweet & spicy.

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
What cocktail night SHOULD be.
They don't actually enforce any of these rules, just don't be a dick.
Very romantic spot.
Great cocktails. Also order the ricotta toast with truffle oil.
Pro-tip: Get a fishbowl of anything (bartenders are like magicians here) and share it with someone, save some $
Great for a date or amazing drinks
Best for a date! Cocktails are the best and appetizers as well. Friendly staff
Perhaps the best Old Fashioned I've ever had.
Dress code. Line out the door (before it was even open!). I should hate this place. But I couldn't if I tried. The lovely hostess was so accommodating for our group of 12. And the drinks were insane.
Very cool place, drinks are a bit pricey but they're super creative.
Neat little spot with unique cocktails and a romantic ambiance.
Very pretty! Had much better luck with the "dealer's choice" cocktails than what was on the menu. Got a few killer cocktails that way.
I liked it but this place is totally overrated. I wouldn't wait in line for it.
The drinks are good and the ambience
Friends, drinks and no phones.
My fav spot of all time. Perfect for date night, girls night, or just group of friends night!!!
Be sure to get a Sazerac.
Believe the hype. The cocktails and the service are phenomenal.
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.
Baseball caps not allowed. Ironic berets welcome.
🍸 Are you having a good time, X💗X💗?
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.
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.
Fun to try something new
Tall love seats make it seem like you are the only group in the bar. Chandelier are so my thing
Great drinks classy place
Try the cocktails.
The entrance is somewhat hidden. Don't worry, you're in the right place.
super cliche, super great
