The Windy City is a great place to visit, especially in the late afternoon/early evening, when most happy hours get underway. Here are my top five recommendations for places to whet your whistle and get a great bite to eat.
169 W. Kinzie St
Stop into this popular gastropub for an innovative craft cocktail, one (more more!) of 40 beers on tap, or a glass of wine from the well-curated wine list. Grab some hearty eats made from locally sourced ingredients off the main menu, or indulge in $2 happy hour tacos from 3-7 p.m. on weeknights.
Girl and the Goat
809 W Randolph St
The incomparable Girl & the Goat opens at 4:30 every day and stays open until 11 p.m. on weeknights and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Known for its craft beers, diverse and delicious menu (divided into three categories: vegetable, fish, meat) and diverse wine list, Girl & the Goat is sure to please even the choosiest of foodies. (pictured is duck tongues with tuna poke & crispy wontons)
Union Sushi and Barbecue Bar
230 W Erie St
Union Sushi and Barbecue Bar offers one of the best happy hour deals in Chicago. Special pricing between 5:00-6:30 includes: $1 oysters, $2 beef fillet skewers, and $4 shrimp tempura rolls. Pair those tasty eats with a craft beer or glass of sake and you’re all set.
24 S Michigan Ave
Located near Millennium Park, the Gage is a gorgeous gastropub serving upscale comfort food, fine wines, boutique beers and whiskeys in a sophisticated vintage atmosphere. It’s a great place to bring that very discerning foodie in your life.
151 W Erie St
Chicago, IL 60654
This Spanish-influenced Barcito offers a daily “Tapas Time” during which you can order a delicious mixed drink and get great deals on small plates (I recommend the pork belly sliders.) Salud!
