Traders, though not generally known for having an excess of class, by virtue of proximity lay claim to this elegant hideaway in the old-world LaSalle Atrium Building. From the chandeliers to the black-and-white floor to the handsome wood-paneled walls, it makes for a very white-collar happy-hour locale, though when the bartender responded to our request for a Negroni with a blank stare, we realized it wasn’t quite the hidden gem we thought it was.
