Tag - Chicago bars

When you're having too much fun on a night out, the last thing you want to do is head home. Fortunately, there are a number of bars in Chicago that have been granted late-night liquor licenses so that they can serve alcohol ‘til well after the DJ’s last call.

The following late-night bars are open til 4am on weekdays, and 5am during the weekends.

River North might just be the nightlife capital of Chicago. However, this neighborhood has much more to offer than just bars. You could easily spend an entire day here dining, shopping and enjoying the city. Keep reading for your guide to a day in River North that won’t break the bank.  

When you think of beer tours, you typically envision yourself in a brewery, listening to a dude with a dope beard explain the difference between hops and barley. You're vaguely paying attention because your taste buds are going crazy from sipping on a craft brew you typically wouldn't know to order. Now with Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tours, yes — you're learning how beer is made. But — you're also learning about Chicago history and exploring local neighborhoods, beer in hand.

The Good Life: RM Champagne Salon

Thursday, August 2, 2012 12:00 AM by Sean Evans

As someone who recently started paying their own cell phone bill, I’m declaring myself a grownup. Officially. And since nothing says adulthood quite like catching a buzz on a weekday, I ventured to the West Loop’s much ballyhooed RM Champagne Salon — Opening this Sunday!

RM is hidden behind Nellcote by way of a cobblestone alleyway on Randolph Street. So, my first task was finding the joint. Thankfully, there was a pack of immaculately dressed, recently-engaged types who seemed to know people who know people. I followed them and, as predicted, was led to a bubbling glass of Rose'. Thanks, ladies!
