Unlike some of the other places with camouflaged entrances, Dorothy is hiding in plain sight. Despite having a bright red door right next to its Humboldt Park sister restaurant, Split Rail, it’s easy to miss. Once inside, this LGBTQ+ cocktail bar is surprisingly spacious, with giant comfy red couches and ‘70s-esque decor that makes it look like it was curated by a professional garage sale hunter. The drink menu is small with only eight rotating cocktails, including intriguing options like the Liquid Gold with carrot-infused rum, orange, turmeric, and oat milk. Be sure to also check their calendar for events like open mics, live music, and TV or movie screenings.
