Concierges' Favorites

Cheers to Chicago!

Spring is here, the perfect time to enjoy a great cocktail (or two) at one of Chicago’s amazing bars. We asked the concierges about their favorite spots to unwind with their favorite drink. 

Roushaunda  @ the Lockwood Bar 

“Roushanda Will is a personable seasoned mixologist with 21+ years experience. Her specialty, the ‘Old Passion,’ which is a spin on the Old Fashioned cocktail, is delicious and decadent.”  

Deborah Sawyer Lead Concierge Palmer House Hilton 

Jérémy @ Le Bar 

“My favorite bartender is Jérémy Foissac at Le Bar, located at Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile. While I’ve never had a cocktail made by him I haven’t liked, his signature drink is called Agrum’& Sens. It’s made with Cîroc Vodka, Yuzu, Timut pepper, lime juice, and grapefruit juice. It’s refreshing and delicious!” 

Morgan Jae Cohen Chef Concierge Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile 

Sarah @ Little Toasted 

“Little Toasted has an amazing restaurant and outdoor seasonal patio hidden between the Loop Financial District and the West Loop on Canal & Jackson. Locals love bartender Sarah Katich.  She is down to earth and effortlessly cool. Two drinks you have to ask for are the Whiskey Berry Sour and the Upside Down. I happen to love both and can’t decide between them!”

Flor Sigaran Building Hub Concierge 

Ivan @ Eight Bar 

“Ivan at Eight Bar in the Gold Coast makes an Old Fashioned drink that has helped me warm up during the Chicago winter. His attention to his craft is exceptional and he anticipates the needs of all his customers.” 

Luis Torres Concierge at Trump International Hotel & Tower 

Chel @ Cobra Lounge 

“Chel Boren is my favorite! She works at Cobra Lounge and she makes an AMAZING Pink Cadillac Margarita!” 

Krystle Kauhaus Front Desk Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites Mag Mile Chicago 

Daniel @ Cira 

“My favorite bartender is Daniel Alvarez at the Hoxton Hotel’s lobby bar, Cira. Daniel introduced me to his ‘Naked and Famous’ and it has been the cocktail I find myself craving ever since!”
