This bar sits high above Michigan Ave, just north of the fountain and atrium in the 12th-floor lobby of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. And as could be expected from a bar inside one of the city’s most luxurious hotels, this place is old-school swanksville. Chairs upholstered in soft leather, ribbed corduroy and plush velvet surround ornate tables in a copper-tinted room that, after a couple of martinis, you’ll never want to leave.
