Winter isn't exactly the season for barhopping. We much prefer to take off our puffy jackets (and scarves and mittens) and get cozy until the bartender kicks us out at the end of the night. Some of the best bars in Chicago are perfect for doing just that—and they're sweetening the deal with live entertainment, from tarot-card readings and drag performances to bouquet-making classes and museum exhibits. Snuggle up, because you'll want to stick around these Chicago cocktail bars that serve their drinks with a side of entertainment.
