More Places To Party Perched High Above

Here's the view from Tavern at the Park's new rooftop lounge overlooking Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue.

It's still under construction, and set to open in about two weeks, but you don't have to wait that long if you're looking to drink on a rooftop right now.

What Is Au Cheval Supposed To Be?!

The West Loop's Au Cheval is not The Violet Hour, but apparently it wants to be.

An outing last Thursday turned into quite an unfavorable experience at the new so-called upscale diner when they wouldn't seat five of us at the completely empty bar. And I mean completely empty, during happy hour on a Thursday when everyone is looking for a good place to drink.

Why wouldn't they seat us?!
