We did our best at Drink Deck to present 52 tried and true bar scenes in Chicago and vowed to work with owner/operators that are at the top of their game!
That said we took some risk working with owner/operators that planned to expand their offerings in 2010. Case in point, we recently learned from Dine and Drink, Inc that operations at the fifth, a cocktail and wine bar in the 600 W Chicago Building, would be discontinuing operation in February, 2010. Dine and Drink consisted of three cards in the 2010 Chicago Drink Deck: the fifth, Paramount Room and Volo Wine Bar. As a result of the closing of the fifth, Dine and Drink, Inc has agreed to honor the fifth Drink Deck card at Paramount Room and Volo Wine Bar.

Additionally, the Chase Lounge conversion to the Southern meant some changes not only to the look and feel of their space on North Milwaukee, but also to the menu offerings. A sleek Miami-esk vibe has turned to a Nawlins themed dining spot with a “kick ass” bar. You can learn more at http://www.thesouthernchicago.com/. Despite the changes the Lasky Group, who also owns the Hunt Club, will honor the Chase Lounge card at their recreated spot.
