Violet Hour

Violet Hour

Pull back the plush cobalt-blue drapes and reveal parquet wood floors and whimsical leather chairs with exagerated high backs that, when grouped together, create near-private spaces for imbibers. The signless entrance does little to keep the extensive cocktail menu at this Wicker Park watering hole a secret. Try The Boss for scotch with lemon, Campari, carpano, and cold-brew coffee.
