It goes without saying that Rogers Park Social is the go-to spot for crafted cocktails. Enjoy their community ambiance by playing a game of Monopoly or enjoying some live music while gazing out onto a artfully graffitied wall. This spot represents Chicago well, and locals are responding. This cocktail lounge and bar offers the perfect balance of old and new when it comes to their cocktails and atmosphere. Using South American inspiration, bartenders here can take you on holiday to Chile with their famous Pisco Sour, using exotic ingredients; or keep it stateside with a decadent Bloody Mary topped with crunchy pickles and maybe even a Chicago dog dipped right in. Be on the lookout for fun holiday events and the glorious food truck that periodically rolls around. You can bring your friends, and you can even bring your dog for some good times and great drinks.

A mildly social person’s dream bar is here at The Norse Bar in the heart of Chicago. You don’t have to come with friends. Come by yourself and mingle amongst other people just chilling out and enjoying the environment! The vibe at The Norse Bar is friendly and the atmosphere is one that encourages interaction between strangers; and these days, that is a beautiful thing that our country needs! Casually start a conversation at the bar with a fellow drinker or the amazingly hospitable bartenders; or join in on a board game being played by some local beer enthusiasts. Speaking of beer, they’ve got a pretty decent selection of beers on tap like their Half Acre Vallejo IPA brewed right here in Chicago. Don’t overlook the seemingly endless cans and bottles they have featuring beers from all around the country. Oh, and those gorgeous, salty pretzel sticks- they’re complimentary.
Finally, a Chicago bar with food! If you’ve been bar hopping around the area, you’ll have noticed by now that so many drinking holes are lacking a menu. And we know that buzzed people like to eat! Start by ordering one of their uniquely hand crafted cocktails themed after the name of their bar. For something light and refreshing, order the Green Eyes cocktail which is green tea- infused vodka, lime, mint and celery bitters, then dive into their impressive menu with dishes from around the world! You can have a Filipino appetizer such a Lumpia which is a pork spring roll, or a main dish from Latin America with their to-die-for variety of tacos! Of course, there are burgers and salads for the traditional diners. No matter what you put on your tastebuds at Little Bad Wolf, you will surely be coming back time and time again!
