Sumptuous Wicker Park cocktail lounge.

Restaurant Details

Wicker Park's hidden Violet Hour is a dark, sumptuously appointed retreat from the harsh world outside, attended by nattily dressed barkeeps who exhibit a balletic facility with jigger, shaker, and glass. Under the remote guidance of "head intoxicologist" Toby Maloney, the seasonal cocktail menu employs house-made bitters, fresh juices and garnishes, and multiple types of ice in different shapes, sizes, and temperatures. The bartenders are warm, well-versed in cocktail culture, and happy to guide you through the drink list. For "sustenance" there are seasonal bites like red curry squash crostini with pickled Spanish octopus, marinated finocchiona with pickled vegetables, and sardines with house-made crackers and Tabasco.
