Afterbar is a cocktail lounge in the West Loop with a bright modern interior, a spacious patio, and a great cocktail list. We particularly like the Payday Millionaire, a play on an Old Fashioned made with bourbon, rum, and creme de banana for a slight hint of vanilla and banana flavor. Since it's mainly surrounded by offices and only open Monday-Friday, it’s not a place that’ll make it onto your weekend bar crawl plans. But if you work in the area, or are pulling up at Union Station across the street, Afterbar is a reliable choice.
