The Sixth - Chicago
Lincoln Square is the epitome of a great Chicago neighborhood, offering plenty of personality, charm and a number of notable dining and drinking establishments. But what was missing was the sort of craft cocktail lounge one would typically find in Logan Square, River North or the West Loop.
Enter The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group and its award-winning beverage director Benjamin Schiller--who just happens to live in Lincoln Square. Under his direction, they created the sort of neighborhood bar he'd enjoy: one offering an inviting vibe, good music selection and most important, great cocktails.
The Sixth is the group's sixth establishment to date, thus the name. While the drink lists provide everything from low-end to high-end, the bulk of the beverage program is reserved for the craft cocktail program, which features whimsical creations by Schiller. Special accents like colorful ice cubes and unique glassware add pizzazz to the liquid delights.
Food is offered next door at the adjacent Roots Handmade Pizza (the original location is in Ukrainian Village).
