For casual nights out to the romantic rendezvous, these Chicago hotspots are perfect for date night drinks, according to concierge.

The Lodge

The casual-cool vibe of The Lodge makes for a laid back date night in one of Chicago’s most historic watering holes. Sit at the bar or in a corner table with a draft beer or cocktail, play some jukebox tunes, and have a fun, no-pressure night.

Bonus: the relaxed atmosphere makes The Lodge the perfect spot to have a conversation; no yelling at one another across the table here!


This swanky River North staple is the perfect place for innovative and unique cocktails and a choose-your-vibe model. That’s right — with three floors, Celeste offers an experience to satisfy any type of date night. The super chill main bar, sleek lounge, and the dancy Disco located upstairs make Celeste a fantastic date night option.

8 Bar

This gorgeous Gold Coast bistro and bar just screams “date night!” Huge booths and modern gallery art line the walls of 8 Bar, making it a cozy yet cool date night experience. The impressive cocktail list also offers creatively named cocktails like the Como Se Llama and the Scotchy Scotch Scotch, so you’re sure to have at least a few laughs with your date.

Green Door Tavern

The hallmark of a great date is great conversation, but sometimes you need a little inspiration; Green Door Tavern is covered in Chicago history and memorabilia, so you’re sure to find something to talk to your date about! This 100-year-old Chicago staple has a massive beer list that includes local brews and a whiskey list that’s sure to impress.


There’s always something to do at Roscoe’s. This Boystown staple comes complete with a dance floor, pool tables, and even weekly trivia night! Their multi-room bar also has an outdoor patio, so you can’t go wrong with this lively and exciting date night spot.
