The Weekender: Chicago, Illinois
Strategically drink and eat your way
through a weekend in The Windy City
Saturday night: After freshening up at the hotel, grab a cab and head to Logan Square for a pre-dinner cocktail at The Pink Squirrel, a retro-chic bowling alley celebrating often overlooked Midwestern classics like Brandy Alexanders and Grasshoppers. For dinner, make your way to an evening of Spanish fare at Black Bull, where Chicago’s largest sherry menu will carry you through each course. And because no dinner is complete without a nightcap, make the trek upstairs to Bordel, where cabaret-style entertainment and modern spins on Prohibition-era cocktails (see: The Stranger Things, made with vodka, sherry, grape and ylang-ylang) await.
