The Bar at The Peninsula

108 E. Superior St. , The Peninsula
Chicago , IL , United States http://www.peninsula.com/chicago/en/default.aspx#/chicago/en/Dining/The_Bar
(312) 573-6695

This cigar bar-turned-cocktail lounge is a popular after-work hangout for locals—and tourists in the know. The friendly waitstaff, roaring fireplace, and mix of jazz and funk music create an appealingly low-key atmosphere. Bartenders prepare cocktails with precision; try the Cosmollini—a blend of Citron vodka, white peach purée, and champagne.

Tip: With just 55 seats, The Bar provides an intimate setting for couples or friends. But to make things even cozier, ask about reserving the private area in back.
