Visiting Chicago in a few weeks with a friend. We are both in our mid 30s. Looking for places that have a fun atmosphere, (would actually prefer to eat at the bar if possible). Definitely not looking for a romantic dinner type of place. We are trying to check out as many places as possible (have 1 drink and eat something small then move on to the next place). Looking for input on my itinerary.
Check in to Hotel around 7pm (staying at the Sheraton)
Roof at the Wit
Maudes Liquor Bar
RM Champagne Saloon
Will send email and try to get in to Aviary at 10PM
Violet Hour (Big Star while we wait for the call from Violet Hour)
Also have a reservation at GATG at 11:45PM, not sure we if we'll make it though.
Any cool late night spots we can check out?
I was thinking Mexique for brunch Saturday morning. Wanted the contemporary Mexican without the long waits of Frontera Grill (from what I read here) A lot of places to check out, I don't want to spend a lot of time waiting in line.
Some site seeing
pick up a bottle of wine at Hart Davis then head over to Ruxbin before they open (is this a good choice)
Nothing planned for Sunday. Flight leaves 6:30PM.
Other spots I plan on checking out
The Drawing Room
I was in Chicago with my wife a few months ago and visited Publican, The Purple Pig, Sable, David Burke's Primehouse, so want to try something new.
Anything I should take out/add?
