Kevin Warwick of the Reader called Alice's Lounge " one of the best worst decisions you can make on a Saturday night at 3 a.m." Best for the legendary karaoke, stiff drinks, and ever-present snacks––worst because the sun is about to come up and you’ve foregone sleep for the chance to sing. Wood paneling and neon beer signs validate this spot's credentials as a dive bar, which keeps its doors open until 4:30 a.m. on Saturdays.
Rockit Burger Bar fits right in as part of Rockit Ranch Productions' Chicago-based empire of hip gastropubs and innovative fusion spots. Its chefs enhance beloved American comfort foods with inventive flourishes and haute-cuisine ingredients?high-end foodstuffs such as truffle cr?me fra?che, locally raised Midwestern beef, and red-onion brioche buns feature prominently on the impressive lineup of burgers, and flatbread pizzas show off toppings of wild mushrooms, gruy?re cheese, and calabrese salami. Diners cap off their feasts with caramel-banana milk shakes and warm brownie sundaes, or supplement dinners with frosty craft beers and cocktails mixed with rye, absinthe, and bitters.
Rockit Burger Bar's uniquely rustic yet upscale interior bristles with eccentricity and fun, with multiple moose antlers dangling above the bar space and huge windows filling the room with light and lively street scenes. Located across the street from Wrigley Field, the space is a hub of constant activity, whether from Sunday brunchers chowing down on waffles and breakfast burritos, or ticketless baseball fans trying to peer through the stadium walls with x-ray goggles.
Beer's servers deliver platters of jumbo smoked wings, homemade chili con carne, and barbecue-soaked baby back ribs as bartenders pour heady brews. Beer hosts karaoke every Tuesday through Sunday night at 9 p.m. to entertain a bevy of aspiring Sinatras and closed-caption enthusiasts. The Wrigleyville watering hole also opens at least two hours before every Cubs home game, entertaining the North Side team’s fans before, during, and after baseball games.
Uncle Fatty’s Rum Resort wards off winter blues with 7,000 square feet of tropical decor, summertime cocktails, and a manmade lava river snaking through the bar. To buttress the beach theme, parties can order a cooler of 12, 24, or 36 brewskies to a table drenched in red and green light. In addition to signature cocktails and fishbowls filled with frozen fruit, ice cream, and chocolate liqueur, the entertainment emporium shelters cover bands that fill audiences’ ears with nostalgia and their mouths with the desire to sing along.
The LBGT-friendly Velvet Rope invites revelers with open minds and refined tastes to enhance their evenings with the lounge's slate of fine wines, international cuisine, and elaborate entertainment in the form of go-go dancers and drag shows. Beneath the suffuse lighting of tulip chandeliers, the bustling main floor hosts a full bar, where 35 specialty martinis brim with creative ingredients—such as cookie-dough vodka and absinthe—while the private VIP loft accommodates dozens with a dedicated server, a private television, and plush furnishings for late-night pillow forts. Food and drink packages deck out special events, and the nightclub's calendar overflows with karaoke nights, drink specials, and live performances.
