Classic Chicago Cocktails 

June 1st 7PM

Cocktails inspired by the Windy City’s colorful history, neighborhoods, and people. 




Cocktails in the White City

June 8 - 7PM
The time: 1893. The place:  Chicago, risen from the ashes of the Great Fire, asserts an international presence by hosting the World’s Columbian Exposition, where millions of curious tourists from around America and the world would flock to witness artistic and scientificinnovations, and to explore the brand new idea of city planning. 

But what did these fairgoers do outside of the exhibition grounds—or rather—what did they drink? Sip on turn-of-the-century flavors as we concoct historical and modern recipes inspired by this pivotal moment in Chicago history. 

Local historian and writer Bill Savage will transport you to the era of the White City with his book Chicago by Day and Night: The Pleasure Seeker’s Guide to the Paris of America, co-edited with Paul Durica.  This tome, a very unofficial guide to the world beyond the fair, details pleasures ranging from the respectable (theater, architecture, parks, churches and synagogues) to the illicit—drink, gambling, and sex. With a wink and a nod, the book decries such urban vices while offering precise directions for the indulgence of any desire. In this newly annotated edition, Chicagoans Paul Durica and Bill Savage provide colorful context and an informative introduction to a wildly entertaining journey through the Chicago of 120 years ago.

Price: $47, includes a copy of Chicago by Day and Night.

Turn of the Century Cocktails

June 22nd - 7PM
Cocktails today are utilized as a heady social lubricant, a voluptuous toast of celebration, or a relaxing balm to calm the nerves. In this class, we turn back the hands of time to recall an era of muslin dresses, impressive facial hair, calling cards, and stately quadrilles as we imbibe historical tipples. Learn how your great-great-great-grandfather gained the courage to escort great-great-great-grandmother home, as we go beyond the Old Fashioned and discover other classic concoctions.
