Maybe the most historic place to drink in the city, The Green Mill in Uptown was one of Al Capone’s favorite haunts back in the day. Although you can’t see the secret underground tunnels he and his pals used to sneak in and out of the club, you should come for the late-night jazz on the weekends, along with some of the stiffest gin martinis in town.
