Best New Bars in America
– Details Magazine
Opened in June, 2012 Drumbar, which sits on the 18th floor of the Raffaello Hotel, has become
one of Chicago’s most celebrated and buzzed about cocktail-focused bars, earning such
accolades as “Top Ten Bars in Chicago” by Chicago Magazine, “Best Whiskey Bar” by GQ
Magazine, and “One of the Best New Bars in America” by Details Magazine.
Drumbar is a speakeasy style rooftop bar off Michigan Avenue located in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. The moody yet energetic bar boasts an intimate indoor lounge area and a beautiful outdoor terrace with views of Lake Michigan and the Hancock building. The bar program is overseen by Alex Renshaw.
Drumbar’s spirits menu is comprised of an unparalleled selection of earnestly sought after whiskeys, scotches, bourbons and cognacs. Many of these are limited released, one-of-akind, highly allocated products meant to offer some of the world’s most unique spirits to guests. Drumbar also has a unique partnership with The Scotch Malt Whiskey Society, an organization that selects and bottles single-cask scotches from distilleries all over Scotland.
