Lily blacks brings to mind the saloons of yesteryears in the 20s. lively and at times raucous, it's got the pedigree of a serious cocktail bar with the attitude of a fun loving hipster.
Bar staff dispense service with a smile whether you're asking for a tequila slammer or an old fashioned and you're just as likely to find yourself in the company of some off duty bartenders knocking back a beer as you are groups of locals dressed up for some serious drinking.
Take a tip from Barchick and bypass the wine and beer (unless you're drinking it as part of one of their Boilermakers) because these guys shake a mean cocktail. And possibly have one of the largest bitters collection Barchick has ever seen (250 and counting). Bitter, boozy, dry, however you like it, we wager there's a drink for everyone but for a bit of fun, satisfy your inner child with their Breakfast in New Orleans. Fruit Loops never tasted so good as it does when paired with Sipsmiths gin, apricot jam, lemon, grapefruit and cream. And if you think that's loopy, just wait till you see what they cook up every last Sunday of the month when they host their very own Iron Bartender contest.
