    The coziest little basement bar to lounge around with a drink. You can never go wrong with wood panelling.

    You're paying for the atmosphere, so make the most of it. Go on a Saturday night and prepare to be sent back in time and serenaded by the jazz singer. Try the Hardball or the Moscow Mule.

    Good cocktails and an extensive menu of classics. Service is poor even for a lounge, and the room design makes things very crowded, but if you don't mind, it's an absolute throwback.

    A few draft beers on offer which was surprising (Stella/Guinness/Samuel Adams). Proper bar tender/service in a relaxed atmosphere. 🍸🍻🥃

    It doesn't.get any more real than this. The Coq D' Or opened the day after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. Have a classic cocktail and enjoy the atmosphere & history.

    Hands down this place offers the best service of any bar I have been to. They can make any classic cocktail you desire to perfection and will stop at nothing to make sure you get a wine you love.

    This wood-paneled Prohibition-era lounge at The Drake will make you feel like a million bucks—even while you’re taking advantage of happy hour prices (Monday through Thursday, 5 to 7 p.m.). Read more

    The Bookbinder soup is delightful. The burger on the soft pretzel roll is a must....scrumptious!

    Perfect Manhattan. Perfect as in delicious, not as in half and half vermouth.

    A bowl is two cups when it comes to the soup. Bookbinder soup is a must! And it is made from snapper (the fish) not snapper (the turtle) nowadays. Delish!

    They revamped their menu. The slider sandwiches are great, especially the grilled chicken. Order the turkey club; it's wonderful.

    Not a chichi cocktail lounge, but probably the most solid drink in Chicago.

    The bookbinder soup is a Drake classic for a reason. Everyone should have two bowls a day.

    Decent Manhattan. But the environment is stuffy. Quiet, upscale, but unremarkable.

    The ambiance of a speakeasy, maybe. A whiskey bar, this is not.

    Terrible service. We walked in to a not-so-crowded bar, and were overlooked by servers for 15 minutes. We left without ordering anything.
