Want to hit all of Chicago’s best late night spots in one night? Here are some of the top hot spots to hit on your night out, recommended by the ones who know best.
Flor Sigaran, Chicago Athletic Association Hotel
Aba, new Mediterranean spot for food and rare cocktail drinks. The inside is as beautiful as its rooftop. Looking for gluten free options? They have you covered. The Lamb Ragu Hummus is a must try.
Ramon Gomez, The Gwen
Three Dots and a Dash is a hot spot! There aren’t many places you can drink tasty and outrageous cocktails from a skull! Photos of their drinks can liven up anyone’s Instagram and if you can’t have fun at a tiki bar well, you know.
Shannon Boland, LondonHouse Chicago
TAO is the missing piece in the Chicago Nightlife puzzle that we’ve been waiting for. This sleek, Asian influenced “Clubstarant” is the perfect spot for a sexy date night or girls night out on the town. Dining Room, Lounge and Nightclub all in one!
Marcus Hollis, The Omni Hotel
Celeste is the best late night bar with a kitchen open late. With the kitchen open until 3 a.m. and the bar until 5 a.m. it’s the best late night attraction for night owls! Don’t forget to check out Disco, the bar upstairs dedicated to strictly playing 70’s music. Who doesn’t love Disco baby!
Mark Kraemer, Hotel Palomars
Scofflaws is great for hanging out with friends and trying new drinks. They have amazing gin concoctions and an even better atmosphere. I come for the gin but I stick around for the fresh baked cookies at midnight! ChicagoInsiders tip: Check out their ‘bar food,’ it goes well beyond your basic chicken wings. Also don’t forget about the whiskey caramel ice cream smashed between warm chocolate chip cookies, it’s to die for!
