The Dandy Crown, a River West neighborhood cocktail-focused restaurant and bar, just announced several Merry & Bright holiday events.
The Dandy Crown will also reopen its second floor lounge for the first time since March 2020, providing an extra interior room.
Plus, the outdoor patio remains a year-round option, fueled by fire pits, propane heaters, hot cocktails, and S’mores Kits. And there are of course plenty of comfort food dishes and in house created cocktails. The Dandy Crown’s daily Happy Hour ( 3pm-6pm) features $7 house cocktails and discounted beers and shots.
