The Matchbox

$$$$(312) 666-9292
Hours:SUN
4PM-2AM

The Matchbox is the smallest bar in the city, and it makes some of the better classic cocktails around. If you roll your eyes when people talk about making friends at bars, come here - you’re in such close quarters that it’s impossible for conversations not to overlap and intersect until you've got a new group of drinking buddies.
