    Excellent Jazz / Blues club. Deservedly popular and well worth a visit if you are visiting Chicago to enjoy the music scene. Convenient to the restaurants / other bars of Lincoln Park.

    Girl & the Goat

    809 West Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60607

    Even with all the competition in the Randolph restaurant corridor, Girl and the Goat manages to stand out, racking up a prestigious James Beard Award while they're at it. The menu is divided into fish, vegetable and meat categories, and the bar specializes in craft beers. G&G boasts an opening time of 4:30pm, and a closing time of "whenever people ...

    The crown jewel of historic-Chicago bars, this classic spot has been around under its current name since 1910.

    The Signature Room at the 95th

    875 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611
    33 reviews

    I could spend hours just taking in the breathtaking views here, which are probably second best to the views from Willis Tower. The cocktails are delicious, and not very pricey, so it's a perfect spot to just lounge the night away. The restaurant is on the 95th and the lounge is on the 96th. You can get bites up in ...

    Metro Smart Bar

    3730 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60613
    4 reviews

    House heads and techno lovers can't get enough of this Lakeview nightclub where internationally-known DJ Kaskade used to spin. It's much less pretentious than similar house-haunt Spybar and always guarantees a fun, messy night that keeps you going until the sun comes up.

    Bangers & Lace

    1670 West Division Street, Chicago, IL
    4 reviews

    This English inspired pub takes its name straight from the slang for the wide array of sausage it serves to the custom lace curtains meant to resemble the lace of foam left after a good beer. The brick wall that stands behind the bar is lined with beer taps & above them hangs a large chalkboard that keeps track of ...

    Pops for Champagne

    601 N State St, Chicago, IL 60611
    7 reviews

    Swanky champagne lounge! A perfect spot to enjoy a bottle of bubbly with a date or small group of friends. On Sundays, the downstairs jazz lounge Watershed is closed, but a live jazz band plays by the bar. Love the modern, mellow and classy ambiance. Service is lovely.

    Mindy’s Hot Chocolate

    1747 N. Damen Ave. Chicago, IL, 60647
    2 reviews

    My boyfriend and I just moved down the street from this place (dangerous, I know) and we're already obsessed. Any place that has to ask if you're here for desserts, drinks, or dinner is good by me! Their hot chocolate is (obviously) amazing, but be prepared, it's rich! I will be sure to split an order next time... but wow. ...

    Very nice menu full of good range and deliciousness. The decor is lovely both upstairs and downstairs. Downstairs is always a good place to sit, relax and have a cocktail either with friends or as a date spot!

    Moes Cantina

    155 West Kinzie Street, Chicago, IL
    5 reviews

    This place is huge, it also has lots of tequila and decent food. I'm ok with it. The only downside? It can definitely be a little bit bro-y. All in all though, it's a great spot, and bottle service is worth it.

    Friends Sushi

    710 North Rush Street, Chicago, IL
    3 reviews

    I never thought for the life of me that I would eat sushi in Chicago. When you're in the Windy City, one has to dine on the holy trinity of Chicago-style hot dogs, deep dish pizzas, and Italian beef sandwiches. After having done all that, it was refreshing to get something totally different and in complete contrast. Friends Sushi fit ...

    3 reviews

    Inside a gorgeous historic 20th-century building near the busy corner of Damen, North and Milwaukee Aves in Wicker Park, the subterranean Trenchermen is classy without being pretentious. The food, with the executive sous chef having trained under Daniel Boulud and other kitchen superstars, is outstanding, with attention paid to every detail. The menu of New American innovative dishes for sharing ...

    Buddy Guy's Legends

    754 S Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60605
    7 reviews

    I was excited to visit this legendary blues club, but disappointed by the band I saw. I would return, but only after checking the calendar first. Buy tickets in advance for the nights Buddy Guy is there.

    Wieners Circle

    2622 North Clark Street, Chicago, IL
    3 reviews

    This late night cheese fries and hotdog spot is a Chicago institution. The food isn’t the only thing that will raise your blood pressure – the verbal sparring between employees and customers gets pretty intense late at night, but it is all good natured, right? THE place for a late night bite after you’ve had too much to drink in ...

    It's kind of touristy, but if you like a good cheesesteak, the sandwich here with sweet peppers and mozzarella is pretty unreal. Get a lot of napkins.

    I'm a sucker for an outdoor patio and this one includes a gorgeous Chicago skyline view and fabulous cocktails. Don't miss it if you're passing through Chicago in the summer!

    4 reviews

    Sat at the bar on a Saturday night and service was actually a little slow but other than that the drinks were fantastic (especially the champagne of course) and they have great taste in music!
