I'm going to Chicago with my bf in a couple months and would love if you could recommend some cool restaurants/bars. We're staying by millennium park. Thanks!! X
Ah amazing!!!! How fun!! I work right by there, it’s a great area! It can be a little expensive so I’ll try and give you a range. For bars, Cindy’s Rooftop is right around there, and it’s kind of known for being the best rooftop Chicago bar. It’s got an amazing view of the city, and some really great food and drinks. It’s a little pricey but a lot of fun! The J Parker a little further north also has a great rooftop as well. MAHALO is an ADORABLE Hawaiian bar in Wicker Park (look at their insta, you’ll be sold!), so you’d have to transit over there, but Wicker Park is such a cute area! Bombobar is a dessert bar in West Loop…..and holy moly they’ve got these insane hot/cold chocolates with all this crazy stuff on it and they’re just over the top but definitely a fun spot to check out if you guys are into desserts. The Public House is more of a restaurant, but they’ve got INSANE bloody Mary’s they’ll pile with stuff. A lot of people like the 3 Arts Cafe at Restoration Hardware, it’s aesthetically awesome, but I’ve heard the food is eh. Kanela is a great place for brunch, small and intimate but yummy food. My favorite brunch place, though, is Lula Cafe in Logan Square. It’s worth it to trek over there because the food is INSANE! For dinner, I love the Little Goat Diner. It’s SUCH a fun atmosphere, you can try some really unique foods, or just get a burger. If you wanna see me, come hang out at LUXBAR in Gold Coast! Great drinks, and decent food!! There’s SO many good places in Chicago, you really can’t go wrong. If you need anything else don’t hesitate to reach out, but those are some of my favs all over the city!
