This Avondale mainstay was once a local dive called The Orbit Room. After new owners took over,Ludlow Liquors revamped to include new drinks and a Filipino menu. For happy hour,we suggest $2 pints of Old Style and $10 pitchers of the same thing.
If you’re looking for a quick after work happy hour special in Downtown Chicago’s River North neighborhood,look no further than Bar Ramone,a classic spot nestled in between office buildings and short-term rentals alike. This wine bar serves up lots of fancy wines for those of us with a little extra money. But for newbies to the city who may be living in furnished rentals for the time being,Bar Ramone offers $7 glasses of wine during happy hour.
VU Rooftop Bar
This South Loop bar is relatively new and offers gorgeous rooftop views of classic landmarks like Soldier Field and the Field Museum. While apartment buildings like Linea or Mila aren’t visible,the half priced bottles of wine during happy hour on Wednesdays are sure to make up for it.
Walton St. Kitchen + Bar
This Streeterville bar is run by the same owners as Lincoln Park’s delicious restaurant Gemini,so guests are sure to find a solid drink list. During happy hour,Walton St. offers up a special menu filled with $5 drinks and $5 snacks,perfect those getting off work or looking to head down from one of the area’s many furnished apartments.
Mason,inside the FOUND Hotel
River North is known for having a bunch of great bars,nightclubs and restaurants in Downtown Chicago,and hidden inside FOUND Hotel lives Mason,a bar that is no exception to the rule. While the happy hour $10 house cocktails may be a little expensive for some,these are some of the best drinks you can get in the area. And if you want to save a little money,they also offer $6 glasses of red wine during happy hour.
