Food and Wine just released its Best Bars in America 2023 list and The Violet Hour bar in Chicago makes the list! This list is filled with high-end craft bars including multiple New York City bars and two different bars in New Orleans. So what makes The Violet Hour worthy of being put on this exclusive list? On the site they say...

"To enter this James Beard Award-winning temple of tipples, you must famously pass through a curtain. It’s only fitting considering that they’re putting on a show. The Violet Hour bills itself as a destination for “artisanal cocktails in the heart of Wicker Park.” Indeed, they’ve been delivering on that promise since 2007. But it’s also a great place to come quench a thirst for knowledge. The attentive staff here isn’t just happy to walk you through the history of hooch, they’re eager to share that expertise."

I wanted to learn more about the menu at The Violet Hour so I went to their website. The menu includes drinks like The Violet Touch, the All Chocked Up, the Love With Your Eyes Closed, and many more, to check out the menu for yourself click here! And don't worry guys if your wife or girlfriend really wants to go check out this bar and you are just a beer drinker, you can get a Miller High Life for $6...
