Remember how Halsted used to have several bars for grown-ups? There are not many places left that aren't about booming music and tedious club...

This place not only has amazing drinks (The Professor was particularly awesome), but also great service. Our server knew exactly when to come by and when to let us chat. And when I accidentally left my phone on the table, he made sure I got it back. Please stop by! You won't regret it.

Drew is just great. On a weekend with my wife, Drew, the manager made us feel like home. We’ll be here again on our next trip.

This place is a more quiet and intimate location — the other bars around it are bustling and busier and louder, so this was a great choice to come into a more low-key establishment. Moreover, the staff are just phenomenal — genuine and friendly. Full cocktail program. Happy hour specials.

Really appreciate a good cocktail spot and how it mixes things up and offers something different from the rest of the strip. I always appreciate when I order a martini and their first question is " Do you want blue cheese olives?"

This is a great place to go and get a drink and a bite to eat any night. They always have decent drink specials too although it is not the best. The Food is not too bad either.One of my friends is regular here and she's been telling me about this place for a while and I can see why.The Spicy Pork sandwich thing was also really good and filling.Though the beer selections here is not my favorite, it had a calm atmosphere to sit down with some drinks and chat.

Their seasonal cocktails are delicious! This is one of my and my husband’s favorite places to go in Andersonville. The atmosphere is dark and swanky. Our favorite. ❤️

A chic lounge for good drinks. Suitable for both a casual outing with friends or a more intimate date with a partner. Also a nice location near many other eateries, bars, and shops in the heart of Andersonville. A great first date happened here years ago. Highly recommend!

Fantastic cocktail bar, I can't believe I didn't go here earlier. I got 5-6 drinks and each one had a unique flavor profile and tasted fantastic. David was our bartender and did a fantastic job, he's super friendly. Absolutely coming back.

Came to this place for the first time today. Bartender is fun and friendly, and the ambience is as good as the drinks! Seriously, drinks are fantastic. Intimate lounge setting.

A good friend of mine had his birthday here Saturday night. Very relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. If you want to try something different, I would definitely recommend this place. It just looks like somebody spent a lot of time going for the speakeasy feel, from the exposed brick and plumbing, down to the chairs and light bulbs. The drinks menu looked interesting, but I really only tried the "Something with Vokkah" (No, I didn't misspell it, and I'm still not sure what that something really was.) Overall, nice addition to SoMa.

I love the Elixir Lounge So glad I live so close to it. The outdoor patio is the best to sit outside in the day and have mojitos. Nightlife there is amazing as well! Such a great atmosphere!

Lil Easy is my favorite bar to go to! I found it with my best friend and it became our spot! The mac & cheese is so creamy and fulfilling. Especially if you get it with fried chicken instead of grilled!! I love the vibe in the back bar room. It kind of feels like a little portal to the past! The water fountain in the center of the room is really cute to take pictures at as well.

Beautiful gem of a places in the middle of busy Boystown street with so many clubs around.I like Lounge like places with soft music than the ones with loud music and a lot going on. This one is perfect for that. Very classy ambiance, perfect for a cute date. They also had fresh flowers on the bar counter that added to the ambiance.The bar tender was super super friendly and fun! The drinks were great too!! I’m visit here every time I visit Boystown now.
