Although there’s no sign or clearly marked door, a yellow light bulb heralds this Wicker Park cocktail lounge, where crystal chandeliers and cornflower blue velvet curtains enhance the speakeasy vibe. Designed for intimate conversation, the bar is separated into several sections, and high wing back furniture is grouped together throughout. Bartenders (appropriately donning vests and arm garters) use eight different kinds of twice-filtered ice, along with homemade syrups and bitters to mix classic cocktails like dark and stormy, as well as more unique options like Juliet and Romeo.

Insider Tip:

Note the sign at the entranceway asking patrons to refrain from making cell phone calls.
