Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

#34 Billy Sunday (Chicago, Illinois)

Billy Sunday isn’t a run-of-the-mill craft cocktail spot. Designed by Rachel Crowl of FC Studios, the Illinois bar evokes Prohibition-era Americana. Bar director Stephanie Andrews impeccably prepares and presents a craft cocktail collection of nearly two dozen concoctions, including the Victorian (Dutch gin, wormwood bitters, Amaro Sibilia, and Fernet) along with draft libations and large-format punches. Don’t overlook the spirits collection; sample the extensive Scotch selection (the Chicago bar boasts nearly 100) and try the amaro (there are 500 types of the Italian herbal liqueurs available). The food at Billy Sunday is a play on Sunday supper at grandma's house, with dishes like pork meatballs served with sweet potato and chimichurri; chicken fried chicken with okra bread pudding and house hot sauce; and pound cake with cranberry and passionfruit.
