Under a ceiling bathed in crimson, guests may saunter up to chic leather swivel stools and enlist a skillful bartender to whip up elegant cocktails. Upscale potions range from the nostalgia-soaked Soho ($12)—loaded with Makers Mark, sweet vermouth, bitters, and brandy-drenched cherries—to the Rio ($12), whose combination of basil vodka, pineapple juice, club soda, and lemon juice was called “disarmingly refreshing” by Chicago magazine. Small plates tantalize taste buds with brat bites ($9) and sweet potato fries ($8), while sandwiches run the gourmet gamut from prime angus burgers ($12) to turkey ($12) and salmon ($13).
A continuous cascade of blue and red hues showers down on patrons from an LED-lit ceiling, equipped with a sprinkler system in case conversation gets too steamy or humor gets too dry. Noted Chicago interior outfitter Jordan Guide designed the modern lounge space and continues to make her mark by occasionally scratching her monogram into the bar’s ice cubes.
