Time Out Chicago: Best cocktail bars in Chicago
Punch House, part of restaurant/bar/event space Thalia Hall, is from the Longman & Eagle and Empty Bottle team and located below Dusek’s Board & Beer. It's a dark, '70s-themed punch-focused bar decorated with a fish tank, wood paneling and a huge fish on the wall. And punches, a communal drink, are priced to benefit those willing to share.
If classic cocktails and ’90s hip-hop are your jam, Moneygun might just be your dream bar. The small, dark space features all the originals—from mojitos and mai tais to sidecars and sazeracs. Every drink involves a perfected recipe and quality, often house-made ingredients.
