THE BEST BARS IN CHICAGO TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR

December 4, 2017

by Jay Gentile 

 

Picking the best bars in Chicago is a lot like picking your favorite Seinfeld character. You can make a case for pretty much all of them (especially Newman). Yet our Beverage Director franchise seeks to do just that: uncovering the best places to booze in the city at this precise moment in time. Utilizing a finely curated mix of new hotspots, local classics, and seasonal favorites, we just made your decision of where to drink this weekend a helluva lot easier. And if you’re looking for last-minute New Year’s plans, you could do much, much worse.

 

BEATNIK

WEST TOWN

A stunner for absinthe cocktails and worldly epicurean cuisine.


With a bohemian ‘50s vibe and opulent chandeliers that help make it one by the most visually stunning new openings in recent memory, this latest offering from Bonhomme Hospitality Group (Celeste, Bordel, Fulton Market Kitchen) continues to turn heads along with a head-spinning collection of drinks from group beverage director Liz Pearce (also known as one of the top bartenders in the city.) This worldly space opened in a former clothing store houses antique doors and façades circa 1900 while the menu explodes with epicurean delights like roasted Lebanese style lamb and 10-day dry-aged pluma ibérica. Drinks include boozy slushies such as the absinthe-packed Eaaaaasy Tiger and the shaken Melange of Modern Cultures cocktail with green chili vodka, mescal, celery, lime, and walnut.
