Chicago’s beloved Tiny Lounge is not quite as tiny as it used to be. The bar’s original spot beneath the Addison Brown Line “L” stop was obliged to close back in early 2006 as a result of CTA construction. The bar has since found a new home in North Center and has been revived and restored. Certain key elements are present and correct.
The well-loved martini list has returned, along with an expanded classic cocktail list. The beverage selection now includes Pisco sours as well as other vintage drinks. Those with sweet teeth should try the Cocotini, a blend of Tito’s handmade vodka, godiva white chocolate liqueur, and chocolate syrup, finished with cream – dessert in liqid form. Boozy liquid form. Beer lovers are also well served and can choose from between one of 10 beers on tap or a huge selection of more than 70 by the bottle.
There’s also a food menu of simple, shareable dishes include heavenly 3 Cheese Truffle Fries and frankly addictive fried Wisconsin cheese curds. There’s a decent wine list too.
