This small cocktail bar in Albany Park has a lot going on, and we like it. There’s a long drink menu of classic cocktails, signature drinks, beer, and wine, fancy bar snacks like chicken liver pate, and live DJs on the weekend. It’s a great spot for an early-in-the-game date where you’re not sure if you’ll want to leave after the first drink or stick around for food.
