There are a lot of great spots at the Chicago Athletic Association, like The Game Room (a cocktail bar) and Cherry Circle Room, an upscale restaurant on the second floor. The main design elements are dark wood, overstuffed leather chairs, and a huge fireplace. It reminds us of a fancy turn-of-the-century lodge, and the rustic menu (with plenty of roasted meat) fits the ambiance.
