What You'll Get
Party like a rock star while spending money like a roadie with today's side deal to Angels & Kings in River North. For $9, you get any two drinks up to a $20 value at this roiling rock bar (excludes shots, free water, and empty glasses). Time Out's Best New Chicago Bar, this hotspot is right out of a Tarantino movie, replete with spacious couches, vampiric leather, and elusive Walnaussarrus sightings. Live bands, DJs, and untrained karaoke enthusiasts crowd the sonic schedule and belt out the soundtrack to your evening. Check the calendar for upcoming events, or to see what day of the week it is.
On the beer side, order up a Guinness ($6 each) or two cans of PBR ($6 for both), whose presence in your hand cements your status as a high-roller. You can also grab a specialty cocktail ($10) for you and another, or for your left and right hands. Death From Above strikes hard with Sailor Jerry rum, lime, Sprite, and nutmeg, while the Blonde on Blonde bemuses with St. Germain liqueur, house sour, and champagne, or order any classic this-and-that drink from the fully stocked bar (prices will vary). You can purchase up to five Groupons, entitling you to 10 drinks for what could be the price of less than five—like the common occurrence of birthing unexpected twins five times in a row. Take a break from underwater dive bars and cricket tournaments and escape to a new atmosphere with today's Groupon to Angels & Kings.
Time Out Chicago's readers listed Angels & Kings as Chicago's Best New Bar of 2009.
- It’s not so much a “rock club” as a “rock/club,” meaning there are DJs but no techno, a laid-back aura but no sticky floors, a cocktail list but nothing that requires a dictionary to decipher. And that—not Mr. Wentz—is why our readers came out so strong for the bar: It may be celebrity-owned, but it’s the everyman who runs the place. – Time Out Chicago
Though reviews are at times polarized, Yelpers give Angels & Kings a solid three stars:
