Bordel is a
Throwback Speakeasy in Wicker Park
Inspired by Paris' BELLE ÉPOQUE and the gritty neighborhoods of Pigalle & Montmartre, Bordel has become one of Chicago's favorite speakeasies thanks to its one-of-a-kind interiors and a weekly theater of varieties featuring a rotating cast of jazz musicians, burlesque performers, magicians, cabaret dancers, comedians and more.
Our COCKTAILS represent a celebration of the era when America undertook the ‘noble experiment’ of prohibition, when the great bartenders of the U.S. took their skills and their cocktails to the bars and Cabarets of Europe.
Our menu imagines how these same bartenders could have been influenced during their travels and what they may have crafted upon their return back to the States following REPEAL DAY.
