Who doesn’t love a good food and drink deal? Here’s a look at four weekday happy hour deals that concierge love.
Douglas Pickett, Concierge, InterContinental Chicago
The Gold Coast’s Sparrow, a 1930s-era rum-focused cocktail bar, boasts weekday specials from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. featuring half-priced wines and drafts. This retro spot is also a favorite of Bobby Gonzalez, concierge at the Kimpton Gray Hotel, for their $5 daiquiri Mondays.
Jonathan Rettemnier, Concierge, 900 North Michigan Shops
Swing by Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen on weekdays between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. for $4 drafts and bottles, $6 wines by the glass, and $6 well spirits. They also have happy hour pricing on food, so grab a bite and a nice cold beer for the perfect break between shopping the Magnificent Mile.
Judson Corrie, Concierge, Waldorf Astoria Chicago
Pub Royale is a not-so-secret beer haven. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Tuesday-Thursday they dose out rotations of 12-ounce pours on the cheap. Their cocktail program is also something you’ve never seen before with concoctions that pay homage to its British-Indian roots.
John Dillon, Concierge, Langham Chicago
On Wednesdays, it’s all about Tortoise Supper Club! This handsomely-appointed River North favorite offers half priced signature cocktails from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in addition to their weekday deal of $1 oysters and cocktail shrimp from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. What’s not to love?
