Janitor’s Closet is a microbar with great cocktails located in the basement of the FieldHouse Jones hotel in River North. It’s also literally in a former janitor’s closet, hidden behind a door that says “employees only” and decorated with hardware and cleaning supplies. Plan to make a reservation, and to play the free slot car racing available just down the hall on weekends.
