Begin the night with cocktails and a seafood tower or duck fat truffle fries on the expansive tri-level LH Rooftop while watching the sunset. From here, the city and all its possibilities spread out before you. One appealing next stop is CH Distillery, where all cocktails are made from spirits distilled next door. There's the usual gin, rum, and whiskey along with more adventurous flavors like peppercorn vodka. Underneath one of Chicago's Prohibition-era taverns you'll find The Drifter, a speakeasy with cocktail menus printed on tarot cards and live performances of anything from jugglers to burlesque. Wind things down with sultry tunes at Andy's Jazz Club, where top local acts serenade an intimate crowd.
