770 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60642, United States

Three feet wide at its narrowest, The Matchbox claims to be “Chicago’s most intimate bar,” and it may also be its tiniest. For its size, however, “The Box” serves up plentiful flavor in their handmade cocktails enhanced with fresh juices, house-infused liquors and powdered sugar rims - even on the margaritas. Bar patrons can get cozy with the crowd and try the pineapple gimlet or the “Perfect Brandy Manhattan” while enjoying the glow of candles and Christmas lights.
