First of all, these guys know a little something that you don't. They're not the whole, "trendy Mixologist" types, they're Craft Bar Tenders. They know the history of drinks, they know how drinks are fermented, they KNOW, KNOW... know what I am saying? If not,...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
