A classic and classy Chicago bar
Even if you’re not staying the night, The Drake is still a highly enjoyable place to relax. It is an ideal hotel bar for an after-work glass of champagne ($9, cava) or a tall glass of beer for $6.50. We hear the clam chowder served in the bar is delicious, for those who came hungry. The room is high-ceiling, spacious and opulent without being overwhelming.
