Favorite Places for a cocktail or βœŒπŸΌ

 

With this beautiful weather Chicago has to offer lately (for February, it’s near short of a miracle), I’ve been thinking a lot about my favorite places to grab a glass or wine or cocktail. Not in any order, below are some fun places for any day of the week, date night, solo or with the whole family.

London House (Date night/solo)

Just there views alone are breath taking. Like seriously, amazing views of downtown Chicago. They have a great cocktail list and an extensive mezcal list, which is my favorite. They also have a 3 course Power Lunch menu for $20 dollars (a legit steal for downtown). It’s a three course meal from their lunch menu. This is great for date night, out of town friends, have a ladies night or solo. I went during the day on a Tuesday and had he rooftop to myself. Either way, the views and cocktails are top notch.

Bar Cocina (Sunday Funday/Friends) Heading up north, this taco spot has a year round patio. Brunch outside or ice skating during the winter, it’s a year round spot for great cocktail with your friends or family. Their Bottomless Brunch for $39.95 with Chef Stations and Drinks is a must. Their biggest selling point is their year round patio, which isn’t too common for a bar/restaurant. With large couches, heat lamps and plenty of space, the day could be spent here sipping away!

Head to Humboldt Park and sit outside (in winter, it is an ice skating rink) with the entire family. The chicken, hush puppies and slushies are my personal favorite. There is so much room for strollers and doggies, that you could spend hours eating and drinking. My kind of place.

J. Parker (Date Night/Friend/Parties)– With some of the best views in Chicago, this rooftop is located at the Lincoln Hotel in Lincoln Park. They now currently have a year round roof, so enjoy it any time of the year.

Some of my other favorites are the mocktails at Santa Monica House, Big Star and Dark and Stormy slushies at Chop Shop.

Chicago is a place for eating and drinking so there’s so many more. Let me know what you think!
