Encore Liquid Lounge (Bar, The Loop)
Location: 171 W Randolph St
Feel like catching a show, or maybe just a drink? Located next to the Cadillac Palace Theatre, Encore Liquid Lounge is great place for theatergoers to grab some pre- or post-show cocktails. Or why not both? With a large curvy-shaped bar offering a variety of house specialty martinis, you can’t help but feel alive in this fun and energetic environment. If you’re in the the mood for something sweet make sure to try the Russian Fruit Salad: Smirnoff melon, passion fruit, and white grape vodkas, grapefruit juice and agave nectar, served up or on the rocks with an orange twist. Besides their liquid menu, Encore also offers an impressive array of unique appetizers. The habañero-orange marinated duck quesadillas or the risotto croquettes are two dishes you simply can’t pass up.
There’s just something about sipping an elegant martini in this retro lounge with its elevated bar and sunken back booths before heading out for a night on the town that takes one back in time. At least it did for me, and I’m talking about a time I’ve only seen in the movies. So whether you’re headed to the theatre or just a night in downtown Chicago. Put Encore on your list; it’s sure to leave you wanting more.
