While there are bars in every city, if you are specifically looking for cocktail bars, they can be harder to find than your run-of-the-mill Saturday night dance club.

When searching for the Best Cocktail Bars Chicago, start with the internet and don’t forget to include the ones that are outside of the downtown and main tourist areas.

Chicago is home to many cocktail bars and each one is different so make sure to research the location of each one you look up and what it has to offer. If there live music? Do they serve food? Are the drinks reasonably priced? Is there a dress code? These are some of the things you should take into consideration when searching for a place to relax in the evening.

A night out in Chicago doesn’t need to be wild and crazy and loud. If you prefer something more low-key, a cocktail bar is the perfect spot for you!
