If you're exploring Michigan Avenue, definitely check out Dylan's Candy Bar. Ralph Lauren's daughter is the owner! The two floors offer everything from vintage candy your mother would love, to a homemade fudge bar next to a chocolate fountain - and of course, an actual bar featuring candy-themed drinks like the Jolly Rancher Cosmo, Drunken Sour Patch and Pop Rocks Martini (they actually pop in your mouth). They also serve a menu of real food, but who comes to a candy bar for that?

Cuteness overload! This place packs everything that both kids and adults can enjoy. With the wide variety of candy, toys and novelty items, there's definitely a fun surprise at every turn. The main floor has a "candy" bar for adults to enjoy cocktails flavored with their favorite candies. I absolutely love the party room and definitely looking forward to hosting an event there soon!

Candy and a bar are two thing that pair well together. Its like Willy Wonka but in a more sophisticated and playful way. There are some candies that I thought were a bit overpriced like the Astro pops and pop Rocks, but they are hard to find so it nice to indulge a little. The chocolate fountain and private room is always a treat to look at and its perfect for a kid or adult party
