5 Places to Grab a Cocktail


Lazy Bird 200 North Green Street

In the basement of the always-happening Hoxton Hotel, this cocktail den serves up 52 cocktail options and live music.

Scofflaw 3201 West Armitage Avenue 

Famous in the city for it’s gin cocktails, there’s so much more to this local hangout than gin. Try the rum-packed Swizzle 32 or the tequila and mezcal-filled Field With a Twist in addition to craft brews and daily punch specials.

Violet Hour 1520 North Damen Avenue

The secret’s out on this clandestine cocktail lounge. Long known as a cocktail pioneer, this Chicago staple is a must…if you can find the front door.

Three Dots and a Dash 435 North Clark Street

You do not have to be a fan of tiki bars to love this place. Housing over 200 rums, drinks packed to the rim with booze and garnish, and tasty Polynesian bites, this River North bar guarantees fun. 

The Aviary 955 West Fulton Market

Expect the unexpected from this high-end cocktail bar. Created in their state-of-the-art drinks kitchen, cocktails here are more works of art than beverage!
