Chicago >Bernard's Bar
Citysearch Editorial Review. Like its hotel host, The Elysian, this bar makes its presence known in a discreet, yet dignified way. In fact, unless you’re a hotel guest, you’re likely not to notice it due to its lack of signage and tucked-away location on the second floor. With framed nude sketches, velvet tufted sofas and mini ottoman-like tables topped with votives, the space is a masculine drinking den fully equipped with old-school sips like Manhattans and Sidecars, along with craft beers. Eschewing the convention-like settings of other hotel bars--how many times have you balked at patterned carpets and a sea of empty tables--the lounge aims to revive a speakeasy culture where conversation and cocktails prepared with TLC are the only items on the agenda.
