Shannon Gail_City Guide Drinks in Chicago

1. The W Hotel / Current

This is one of our fav places ever, cocktails or not! Not only this this bar super cool and swanky, but the menu is so amazing it’s hard to pick just one.

2. Trellis

This is kind of a “hidden gem” located in the heart of Lincoln Park.  The cocktail list is kind of limited, but of the 7 listed cocktails, they are ALL good.  “Chaos & Luxury” is a fav, closely followed by the “You Can’t Sit With Us”!

3. Franklin Room

The wine list at Franklin Room is impressive in itself.  This speakeasy type cocktail destination is perfect for Happy Hour, dinner, etc.  The atmosphere is super cool plus it’s fairly new to Chicago, so it’s basically a must-try if you want to be ‘in the know’!

4. Hub 51

What’s not to love about Hub 51?  Not only is it super convenient, located in the middle of everything River North, but the ambiance, service, food, and drinks are something to talk about. And don’t even get us started on the half off sushi during Happy Hour!

5. Soho House

This is a new favorite of Team SG.  We can’t even count how many times we’ve been here since they opened in Chicago. All of the wine is great, but our favorite is the Soho Mule.  Definitely worth a try if you’re a Moscow mule fan!
