Foxtrot

You may have seen these polished outposts in Lincoln Park and West Loop, but beyond its brick-and-mortar shops, Foxtrot delivers local brews, curated wines and high-end liquor in under an hour. Toss in a pint from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, Glazed & Infused doughnuts and pizza bagels to round out an epic night in.
