Promising you wanting more at the end of the night. For start, an anti-oxidant boost of tomato juice, caper brine, smoked oysters and etc...all served to you in a glass, Lula’s 11 A.M. Sunday 54. Is just so refreshing. If you prefer something more classic, Barrelhouse’s Creole, a beautiful combination of sweet vermouth, Amer Picon, bourbon and Benedictine; or perhaps the 1871 Manhattan from NoMI with a strong note of Laphroaig Scotch.

Hidden within the Wicker Park neighborhood is Violet Hour, a cocktail lounge with 1920s theme where cocktails are divided into base liquor groups. The feature drink is Juliet and Romeo, a tastefully done drink by mixing Beefeater gin, mint, cucumber and rose water.

For a "la fée verte" spirit-based drinks or absinthe, Le Bar in Sofitel will be the place. House special is none other than Corpse Reviver No. 6, perfectly shaken with lemon juice, Lillet Blanc, North Shore Gin and a dash of Sirene Absinthe. Other feature drinks which are not absinthe-based are also available.

Next is Drawing Room, featuring The Bukowski and The Sun Also Rises, made with absinthe and Prosecco. This tastefully furnished cream toned cocktail bar is located next to the Le Passage nightclub. Another drink which shares a hint of the anise flavour of absinthe, is Duchamp’s Typeset where the drink is prepared by a smoked-anise glass with maple-syrup, rye and port.

Bourbon-based drink has always been an American favourite, a must try has to be In Fine Spirit’s Dead Meadow, made with bourbon, rye, walnut bitters and apple whiskey. Boka’s Weston is made with strong coffee syrup and Four Roses bourbon.
