“One of the Best Bars in Illinois”

Voted "one of the best bars in Illinois" by Esquire Magazine. The Violet Hour was designed to create places of intimacy conducive to the art of conversation. The cocktail takes center stage in each room with the curtained partitions acting to frame the bartenders and with the high mirrored back bar cabinets acting to highlight the numerous specialty liquors and ingredients. “At the violet hour, when the eyes and back  Turn upward from the desk, when the human engine waits  Like a taxi throbbing waiting . . .  At the violet hour, the evening hour that strives  Homeward, and brings the sailor home from sea” T.S. Eliot, “The Waste Land” (1922)
