OK, I guess it is not a true speakeasy since they can legally sell alcohol! What it is, is a really unique space with a great atmosphere. It is divided up into several rooms – including the Whiskey Library and the Champagne room.
While I’m not a whiskey drinker they are reported to have one of the best whiskey selections in Chicago (over 300 choices according to their website). Some of the group I was with who like to indulge confirmed that it is definitely a spot for whiskey tasting.
The menu is a combination of small and large plates with a lot of variety, and is designed for sharing. All of the dishes we tried were good, however nothing was really outstanding. The food came out almost all at once, and the service was just average (it was a very busy Saturday night). The menu also have very, very limited choices for true vegetarians.
The atmosphere is fantastic, however be forewarned it can be very, very noisy depending on what room you are in; noisy to the point where it is difficult to carry on a conversation with anyone other than the person next to you. The show is great – really entertaining! If you want to see it, I recommend booking dinner reservations and requesting the main room.
I’d go back more for the atmosphere than the food. It’s a good choice for a fun group night out!
