Le Bar at The Sofitel

20 East Chestnut St. , Sofitel Chicago Water Tower
Chicago , IL , United States
(312) 324-4000

With overstuffed royal-purple chairs, a French oil painting, and architectural books scattered throughout, Sofitel’s Le Bar feels like a nobleman’s drawing room. Settle in and peruse the His and Hers cocktail menu; it’s divided for Venus and Mars residents and their gender-specific palates. Hers are “elegant and complex,” while His are “handsome and refined.”

Tip: Don’t worry—ordering from the opposite side of the list won’t get you tossed out.
