Best Bars in South Loop to Check Out This Weekend

South Loop has been expanding in more ways than one. New residential buildings, restaurants, and nightlife. Since there are so many options, we highlighted a few of our favorite South Loop bars for you to check out this weekend!

Popular Spots to Grab a Drink

Kasey’s Tavern: This is Chicago’s second oldest tavern and second oldest liquor license in the city! With over 130+ beer options, we see how Kasey’s has been a favorite tavern throughout the years. Set in a vintage storefront, this sports-bar pairs its TVs with a top-shelf beer list.

The Scout Waterhouse + Kitchen: Need a place to watch the games? The Scout is a comfortable, upscale bar with numerous TVs lining the walls. Stop in for a local beer, wine, or a fun cocktail. The Scout also has a loaded food menu if you’re looking for a drink and bite.

Bulldog Ale House: Enjoy their homebrewed beer or any of the classics while you sit outside on Bulldog Ale House’s patio. If the weather isn’t cooperating, the inside of the restaurant/ bar has a lot of open seating with high top tables. This relaxed setting is an easy way to kick off the weekend.

Great Cocktails for a Date Night

M Lounge: Sit back and relax at this South Loop candlelit martini lounge. M Lounge features live performances on Tuesdays & Wednesdays from Jazz to Blues to R&B. The menu features fine spirits and specialty martinis.

Acadia The Bar: A well-kept secret is the cocktails and small plates at The Bar – Acadia. The restaurant is well known for its two Michelin Stars but also has a bar seating area. Stop in for a cocktail and get a glimpse into this upscale airy restaurant.

Drawing Room: Located in the historic Chicago Athletic Association, the beautifully restored Drawing Room features comfortable café tables, couches, and three grand fireplaces. Sip on a selection of cocktails, a range of red, white, sparkling, and rose wines, as well as curated selection of beer.

Breweries to Hop Into

Vice District Brewing: Stop in for the small-batch beer that’s brewed in house. Vice District Brewing has a couple of core beers along with a rotating selection of others that will bring you new reasons to make it to South Michigan Avenue.

Motor Row Brewing: This pet-friendly microbrewery rotates seasonal beers in a warehouse-like space with a tasting room & upstairs taproom. Grab a growler and fill up on the small batched brews.

Fatpour Tap Works: Well known for its 22 ounce pours, Fatpour is a bi-level brewpub with a 200-plus beer list & a wide-ranging pub menu. Stop in for a pint but stay for the 22-ounce pour.
