Happy Hour Hotspots


The Berkshire Room
15 E Ohio St., ACME Hotel

This bar is perfect for the person who knows exactly what they want out of a cocktail. With a "dealers choice" type of drink making, you can choose all the way down to the stemware of your drink. Also, All cocktails are aged in barrels, making this a unique experience overall. Even if you don't know what you want, there is no better place to play around with cocktails and maybe even discover your new favorite drink!

564 West Randolph Street


If a hand crafted and distilled cocktail is what you're craving, look no further than CH Distillery. Where spirits are made on site, you can bet that when they say they make the best gin and tonic in the city, they aren't lying. 

151 East Wacker Drive, The Hyatt Hotel 


With one of the longest bars in the city, The Big Bar holds up to it's name. Luckily their bar isn't the only big thing about it, with a 1,400 bottle liquor collection and big drinks to match, this bar is the perfect place to bring your whole company to happy hour - it you're into that sorta thing.

1664 N. Ada St.



This tucked away classic will have you sipping on drink after drink. A true win bar at heart, if you're looking for a more low key happy hour where you can keep the wine bottles flowing by candle light, I suggest heading over to Ada St. 


435 N. Clark St.


This Tiki Bar is an escape from city life with just one sip of their dark Jamaican rum. One may not expect to find this hidden gem down an ally in the middle of River North but, with over 20 hand crafted tropical drinks on the menu, you won't find anything you won't like. Watch out for the little skulls next to certain drinks, it means you have a strong cocktail on your hands! If you're in a larger group, their shared drinks are just as good with creative displays. 


601 N. State St.


This full service champagne bar is the perfect place to celebrate any big event. Even if you have nothing to celebrate, nothing makes you feel extra special like a little bubbly. With light bar fare to pair with their over 250 champagne list, such as oysters and fresh seafood, you'll be sophisticating your pallet in no time.
