For a mellow late-night date or outing, The Gilt Bar in River North opens the doors of its antique speakeasy style bar every evening of the week. You can find an extensive and evolving menu of  spirits, wines, craft beer, and old-fashioned cocktails in a cozy and non-pretentious antique setting at the Gilt Bar.  On the menu are pastas, salads, and an impressive collection of “hors d’oeuvres on toast” items, as well as seafood and grilled entreés.

The Gilt Bar has a special menu for groups – priced at “beginner,” “intermediate,” and “advanced” levels, groups pay between $10 and $30 per hour, per person, for members of their group to enjoy a variety of menu choices and drinks at leisure.

Downstairs from the bar itself is Curio, an intimate and dimly lit underground lounge, where you can take yourself and your companions down for another drink and some live jazz. The bar is open every night of the week until “late,” except Sunday when it closes at 10pm.  Table reservations can be made online.
