Violet Hour

This cocktail lounge in the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood is hidden behind a door plastered with posters. Mixologist Toby Maloney stocks his bar with house-made bitters and infused liquors, and he mixes classic cocktails like the Moscow Mule as well as impressively balanced signature drinks. They're delicious with snacks, like deviled eggs topped with candied pork belly. We loved: The Berliner, made with gin, egg yolk and three kinds of bitters.
