The Darling is a kind-of-quirky bar in the West Loop. The entrance to the restaurant is behind a flower shop (and it's reservation only), and the space is designed to feel like an old mansion. You can hang out on big leather chairs, drink cocktails, and order small and large format dishes (like sweetbreads or a seafood platter). They have a variety of live performances, too.
