Perhaps you’re in Chi-Town for business and don’t know where to take that new chick from logistics for happy hour. Dude, you’re not gonna impress anyone if you start asking, “Where do you want to go?”. You need to take control. Once again, EveryJack’s got you covered.
If the temp is above 65 degrees, an outdoor venue is a must. In the summer, South Branch is my favorite HH spot. It has an outdoor bar with a fair amount of seating. It’s walkable from the majority of the businesses in the loop and across the river from Union Station. Great eats too. The chick from logistics will be impressed.
Runner up is Highline Bar + Lounge. Great indoor venue for a HH. Has a good mix of mainstream & micros and wine & spirits to accommodate all palettes. Additionally, has a decent amount of big screens to catch a game. Like South Branch, this venue is walkable from most businesses in the loop.
