Sable Kitchen & Bar
The Best Cocktails in Chicago at Sable (and a Recipe!)
I had one of the most delicious drinks I've yet had the pleasure of experiencing at Sable. Chicago knows its mixology, and I was lucky to have insiders lead me to this bar located inside the swank Palomar Hotel on North State Street. Their head bartender Mike Ryan honed his skills at Violet Hour so you're getting the same experience without the commute, the wait and the rules. The whole team is incredible and can concoct cocktails in minutes. Saturday night is buzzy yet busy. If you go on a weeknight, you may have a chance to talk with the bartenders more at length. If you see Alex, tell him I sent you! Recipe for Tenser's Transformation: Cynar, Averna, blackstrap rum, lemon, and raspberry. Shake, shake, shake. Garnish with mint. Enjoy!
