A new Loop hotel has a killer bar
Keep cocktail hour classy, Chicago.

Blind date after work? Tête-à-tête with a high-ranking coworker? Unfortunately, there are shockingly few chic and sophisticated options in the Loop for enjoying a cocktail.

Fret no more: The new Adamus Restaurant and Lounge in the recently renovated Silversmith Hotel blends posh design with an impressive cocktail list.

At the bar you?ll find perfectly prepared classics and house specialties, including our favorite, The Silversmith ($14), which is made with honey syrup and citrus-infused vodka, egg whites and fresh lemon.

Need some food to balance out your booze? The Lounge--with its elegant circular bar, the Library nook, communal tables and semiprivate banquettes--serves cheeses and charcuterie as well as main dishes like broiled oysters and fromage blanc flatbread.

Word travels fast, so take our advice and get drinks on the calendar soon.

Adamus, 10 S. Wabash Ave.; 312-372-7696 or silversmithchicagohotel.com
