Love this place for a cocktail!!!! Great vibe. Awesome, fast service The drinks were fantastic and I love a hunk of clear ice.


I had heard of this place opening a few weeks ago and decided to randomly walk in to check it out. The atmosphere is incredible, the waitresses are extremely nice, and the Void sound system is unreal. The first time we went we actually came in during happy hour which is 5-7. The drinks are $7 (essentially half off) and are served with a bite to eat. We got one drink that was off the menu because with a kiwi flavored ice cube and cucumber and the other was a twist on a negroni. I loved this place so much that I decided to go back after only a couple of days. This time it was after watching a movie at the park so it was around 10-11 when we went in. The music was very good. This time we got the Chicago Fire and a drink with strawberries and liquid nitrogen. Some of the special elements of their drinks remind me of Aviary, but they are much more reasonably priced. This is easily one of my favorite cocktail places in the city.
