Bar
$$
“Brendan Sodikoff took over the ’30s-era cocktail bar in 2014 , and it’s still wonderfully low-key with live music, a jukebox and glowing red lights—but now with better drinks. Try the elegant gin and raspberry Clover Club. The venue's robust live music schedule features jazz and country acts, with covers that are usually between $5-$10, depending on the show.”

Cocktail Bar
$$$
“With outposts in New York, San Francisco, Austin and Portland, Chicago seemed like the next logical location for the kitsch-happy Beauty Bar concept. Sparkling glitter paint adorns the walls, '60s beauty salon furniture acts as seating, and the backroom dance floor is completed with a shimmering disco ball. The music stays obscure and mostly dusty during the week, but DJs turn it into an electro dance party most weekends”
