Local favorite: Gilt Bar

Name: Gilt Bar
Location: Chicago, IL
Designer: Chef Brendan Sodikoff

After a long day of work there are few places in the city that have the innate ability to make you feel completely relaxed. Gilt Bar has mastered the effortlessly cool vibe and manages to be both, a bar and a restaurant. The space is what we would consider 'vintage modern' and features long, leather chesterfield sofa's, reclaimed wood tables, modern and salvaged chandeliers and exposed brick walls.
