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.
Modern Cocktail – Enjoy a craft cocktail created entirely by one of our bartenders
Classic Cocktail – Because Everyone should experience a quality classic cocktail
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.
