Time Out says

Sure, plenty of bars are decked out in plants—but how often can you actually buy those plants alongside your old-fashioned or G&T? That’s part of the concept at Moonflower, a Portage Park newcomer draped in lush greenery from nearby Sunnyside Plants, some of which is available for purchase. Drinks here have a botanical tilt, too, from the mint-toned Seeing Green (matcha, sweetened condensed milk, soju and vodka) to the fruit-forward No Brainer (rum, strawberry, banana, lime, Angostura), plus a handful of creative riffs on classic drinks. On weekends, venture downstairs to the speakeasy-style cocktail bar Nightshade, where you’ll find a tight menu that includes—among other treats—a fanciful array of sippers made with fluffy shaved ice.
