In the Neighborhood: It is walking distance from the apartment offering some of the best cocktails and snacks. They are open late and during the summer you can sit outside.

Not only does Scofflaw serve up great cocktails, but their food is almost as good as their drinks. They focus primarily on gin over other spirits, which is an unusual choice as most cocktail bars are very whiskey oriented. They also have a great selection of craft beers on tap, most of them from Chicago-based breweries.

Gin lovers rejoice! At last, a cocktail bar in Chicago dedicated to this most malleable of liquors. Scofflaw has a truly impressive menu of gin-based cocktails, with flavors rangy from sweet to spicy. There's also the occasional curve-ball, for more adventurous sippers-- I once sampled a cocktail that featured pureed spinach. The drink menu is updated every once in a while to keep things fresh, and an abbreviated food menu is also available. The cherry on top of it all? Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies are distributed to patrons at midnight, free of charge.

I am in love with the setup of this place. The victorian couches, dark wood and fireplace really make this a nice place to sit and relax and friends. It also helps that there is a fantastic and unique food and drink menu!
