Bourbon and Beats at Drumbar

Drumbar Chicago Rooftop lounge

Opened in June, 2012 Drumbar, which sits on the 18th floor of the Hotel, has become one of Chicago’s most celebrated and buzzed about cocktail-focused bars. Having earned the accolate “Best Whiskey Bar” by GQ Magazine, it only seemed fitting that they would create a night dedicated to this dark spirit. Every Thursday Night, Drumbar hosts an event “Bourbon and Beats”, a night dedicated solely to bourbon for both the beginner & advanced and whiskey drinkers. This night’s goal aims to turn an amateur whiskey drinker into an enthusiast by providing a culture of education through our bourbon flight menu and bartenders. Of course, what’s an evening of drinking without good music? Drumbar’s resident DJ, Jonathan Marks, creates a special playlist dedicated to the dark spirit.

Offering a special menu that is available only Thursday Nights, is broken down into three sections – A Modern Bourbon Cocktail, A Classic Bourbon Cocktail, and 2 Bourbon Flights.

Bourbon and Beats Cocktail Drumbar Chicago

Modern Cocktail – Enjoy a craft cocktail created entirely by one of our bartenders

Bourbon Flight Distilleries Chicago

Bourbon Flights – Each month the menu will rotate and feature 2 Distilleries with three select bottles per flight as well as great tasting notes and some history about each bottle,  providing a little education on what you are drinking.

These are available, and encouraged, for the guest to take home. The next month brings a whole new menu for guests to try, so you only have 4 weeks to get your hands (and taste buds) on our selected bourbons and cocktails. Click here for January’s Menu and Click Here for February’s Menu.
