Prairie School - Chicago
Noted bartender Jim Meehan teams up with Heisler Hospitality (Bad Hunter, Barrelhouse Flat, Lone Wolf, Queen Mary, etc.) for this cocktail-focused project on the first level of the Google Building.
Prairie School showcases classic and original cocktails, plus it offers an extensive list of sake. The bar is adjacent to Regards To Edith, another Heisler establishment. Guests may settle into roomy barstools to watch bartenders work their magic or opt for booth seating looking out to the street.
When it's especially busy at Prairie School, they'll have to settle for one of the bar tables with no seats. The soundtrack is esoteric, with music ranging from exotic Asian house music to trippy hip-hop.
