Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood is an increasingly popular place to live, work — and play.
In the West Loop (and beyond), Chicago restaurants and bars are reviving happy hour specials, since its citywide ban was lifted in 2015. Thankfully for us, there are a variety of specials to enjoy, from beer and wine, to craft cocktails and small bites. Pick your poison.
Try these 5 spots for happy hour in the West Loop:
Newer to the scene, Honey’s offers a spectacular environment for happy hour, Monday through Friday (5-7:00p) featuring cocktails, wine, beer and apps at the Atrium Bar. (Honey’s, 1111 W. Lake Street)
Visit Nellcôte for a wood-oven gourmet pizza and a Modelo pairing for only $10, every Monday through Friday. (Nellcôte, 833 W. Randolph Street)
