Top 5 Cocktail Bars for an Incredible Bev


The only thing better than a delicious cocktail is a delicious cocktail with a beautiful presentation! Concierge named their favorite cocktail bars for a drink that is sure to wind up on your Instagram feed:

Chicago Magic Lounge

Drinks and a show? Prepare to be amazed at the astonishing tricks and mind-blowing magic at Chicago Magic Lounge while sipping an equally impressive cocktail like the Smoke and Mirrors – which is prepared with actual smoke and flames – or the beautifully garnished and tasty Abracadabra.


The global-inspired cocktail menu at Arbella boasts dozens of creative drinks that will have you reaching for your passport and a boarding pass immediately. Take out your camera when you order the Chicago Fire Extinguisher (served with smoke), Fool’s Gold (served in a honey pot), or the Funky Chicken (served with a beautifully salted rim.)

Palm Court

Tucked inside Chicago’s gorgeous Drake Hotel, Palm Court is the perfect cocktail bar to feel fancy while treating yourself to a deliciously crafted cocktail. Whether you’re heading to Palm Court for their signature afternoon tea, or looking for a pre-dinner drink, Palm Court is the place to be for a beautiful ambience and an amazing drink. Try the Chai Tea-Tini or the Lemon Tea-Tini!

Three Dots and a Dash

One of the most ‘grammed spots in Chicago, Three Dots and a Dash takes your traditional tiki bar and elevates it to a whole new level. With a speakeasy vibe, this bar serves up fun cocktails in even more fun drinkware (that you can even purchase!) complete with fruit and floral garnishes. Drinks are meant to be shared, so grab your friends and try the Bali Bali or the Port Light.


Head up 18 floors in the Raffaello Hotel for Drumbar’s stunning rooftop views and creative cocktails. In addition to the Mezcal Me Maybe to the Walk the Tightrope and every Old Fashioned in between, Drumbar offers impressive wine, beer, and spirit lists that are sure to satisfy your entire group.
