What You'll Get
Most states have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's deal: for $15, you get $35 worth of eclectic eats and drinks at Wonder Bar, in the Historic Gateway District on the lively East 4th Street corridor.
Wonder Bar delights patrons with delicious drinks, delectable gastropub fare, and the promise of frequent live music. The comprehensive drink menu boasts a meaty assortment of 30 beers and 15 wines, including selections from the local Great Lakes Brewing Company. Palates craving a sip of something stronger can patrol a list of Wonder Bar's inventive cocktails. Massage your hand-eye coordination into a state of relaxation with the Spa-tini (Prairie Organic vodka, fresh cucumber, and lemon) or knock back a debauched childhood favorite with the Root Beer Float (Three Olives root-beer vodka, Bailey's, and Coke). Channel the romantic potential of a retired Pog designer while drinking absinthe La Louche --served traditionally with water and sugar cube--or pair the herbal elixir with sparkling wine for a Death in the Afternoon.
Wonder Bar's food menu is served late and provides patrons with plates and pizzas ($14) to share or hoard in a fanny pack. Plates come in two sizes (small, $7; medium, $14) and include bar favorites such as wings, potato skins, and nachos, as well as more-upscale offerings such as crab-stuffed mushrooms, artisan cheeses, and Mediterranean mezze. With its lofty ceiling, low lighting, and warm-hued walls, Wonder Bar makes a cozy stop for the post-theater crowd in search of a place to hide from rabid theater dogs.
